we remediate problems, not symptoms

 
  • 100% natural additives
  • Improves playing performance
  • Reduces operating costs
  • Prevents pests from becoming a problem
  • Improves course appearance

 

 


  • It was through lessons learned in the agriculture sector that Bio Ecological Solutions Inc. was able to design an all natural BioRestore® Pro Turf Golf Course Application that improves playing performance, lowers operating costs, and prevents pests from becoming a threat to the course.
  • Bio Ecological Solutions Inc. course material was used to provide an Integrated Pest Management Accreditation (IPM) Course, that qualifies agents for Continuing Education Credits (CEC). Accredited individuals at golf courses must acquire at least 10 continuing education credits per year to retain their status as an official IPM agent.
  • The nature of the IPM Course revolves around the concept of remediating problems on the tees, fairways, greens, ponds, and the composting site, and not merely attacking the symptoms.
  • Agricultural crops, similar to golf courses, are composed of a wide variety of species, and are grown in a wide variety of climates and soils.
  • The other important similarity with the golfing industry is that farmers are not prepared to add costs, including fertilizers, without having a positive return on their expenditures.

 

Maintenance Goals   Cost Saving Objectives
  1. To provide growing conditions that will develop firm, dry, and healthy surfaces on greens, tees and fairways
  2. To manage the turf in a sustainable manner by improving soil fertility
  3. To reduce the use of water, surfactants, fertilizers, and pesticides
  4. To improve community environmental impacts by protecting surface and groundwater quality, and significantly reducing the needs for pesticides
  5. To reuse through composting grass clippings, wood chips, leaves, pruning, and other organic materials
  6. To reduce member complaints associated with greens, tees, fairways, and pond odours and appearance
 
  1. To reduce annual operating costs
  2. To reduce fertilizer costs by 25% – 50%
  3. To reduce pesticides; insecticides herbicides, fungicides cost by 25% – 50%
  4. To “eliminate” or significantly reduce the cost of surfactants through biological thatch balancing
  5. To reduce water usage costs, and
  6. To reduce maintenance hours including aeration, IPM (Integrated Pest Management) Monitoring, Reporting, and etc.

BioRestore® Pro Turf Liquid and Granular Humate Applications:

BioRestore® Pro Turf Humate applications are applied as an additive at the time fertilizers are being applied or separately as a soil amendment. BioRestore® Pro Turf liquid and granular humates boost the effectiveness of the fertilizer applications. Apply at normal schedules.

  • adds organic matter to the soil improving texture, moisture holding capacity and pH stability
  • improves the plants ability to absorb nutrients, resulting in faster and healthier growth
  • reduces soil compaction, crusting, and improves drainage
  • increases plant tolerance to insects and disease
  • reduces off-site pollution of surface and groundwater

Where liquid fertilizers are being injected into the irrigation water, add BioRestore® Pro Turf Liquid Humate to the fertilizer blend at 1% or 2% of the blend (20 ¡V 40 pounds per ton).

Where a dry blend is being used add 100 ¡V 200 pounds per ton of BioRestore® Pro Turf Granular Humate to the dry blend.

Problem areas can be spot-sprayed with higher rates of BioRestore® Pro Turf Liquid Humate (5 gallons per acre) applied 2-3 times per year.

Reduces Thatch Build-up

Detrimental aspects of excessive thatch:

  • Harbours disease-causing fungi and turf insects.
  • Causes shallow root development.
  • Interferes with movement of air, water, and nutrients into the soil. Suspended nutrients can burn the grass leaves.
  • Increases potential for scalp mowing.
 

  • Thatch is a distinct layer of spongy brown organic matter consisting of living and dead roots, crowns, and lower shoots

Insects and thatch

  • The most important effect that thatch has on insects is interfering with pesticide movement
  • Insects are attracted to thatch because it provides high humidity when wet, temperature moderation, and a food source of living and dead organic matter.
  • Soil insects, such as white grubs are especially difficult to control in thatch lawns because organic matter binds and restricts chemical control. As much as 95 percent of all insecticide gets bound in thatch and does not reach the soil where most grubs are located.

Diseases and thatch

  • Some fungi are pathogenic organisms that attack turfgrass plants and cause disease.
  • When they are not attacking plants they live in a resting stage and feed on dead organic matter created from thatch.
  • Stripe Smut, Leaf Spot melting-out, and Summer Patch are diseases especially favoured by excessive thatch accumulation

BioRestore® Pro Turf Liquid and Granular Humate Applications:
For Tees, Fairways, and Greens

  • Stands up to the physical wear and tear of golfers
  • Keeps thatch balanced „«Develops a dense and healthy turf that crowds out weeds, clover, and moss that compete for sunlight, nutrients and water
  • Develops an expansive root system that absorbs more nutrients and water,
  • Accelerates divot repair
  • Increases sugar content that the plant needs to fight off insects and disease
  • Handles environmental stress more easily
 

Pond and Water Treatment

  • eliminates algae mats, offensive odours, sludge, and unsightly scum
  • 100% all natural, safe for aquatic life
  • can be metered into ponds automatically or applied manually

Compost Accelerator

  • Reduces odours and gasses
  • Speeds composting
  • Maintains temperature of pile
  • 100% all natural and safe to handle
 
  • Spray or spread over pile
  • Re-apply when compost appears dry or when excessive amounts of green material has been added

Benefits & Conclusions

  1. Provides growing conditions that develop firm, dry, and healthy surfaces on greens, tees and fairways
  2. Improves soil fertility in a manner that builds healthier turf over the longer term
  3. Reduces the use of water, surfactants, fertilizers, and pesticides that include fungicides, herbicides, and insecticides
  4. Improves community environmental impacts by protecting surface and groundwater quality, and significantly reduces the need for pesticides
  5. Accommodates reuse through composting grass clippings, wood chips, leaves, pruning, and other organic material
  6. Enhances the golf course appearance and playing conditions, reduces pond odours and improves pond appearance, reduces member complaints, so as to encourage more frequency of play and subsequently higher revenues.
