Re: Turf Management

 

Hi Margaret,

We got the Primo Maxx from a company called 'Living Turf' in Sydney (Marrickville).  Primo Maxx is in Liquid form and needs to be diluted considerably before spraying. 

Living Turf is a specialist turf management organisation who can provide technical advice and a full range of turf products (Fertilisers, Herbicides, fungicides, insecticides etc).  They can also do soil testing to check whether the chemical composition of the soil is suitable for whatever turf is being used.  From the soil testing they will recommend what fertiliser and in what quantities it should be applied to correct any deficiencies.  We have been getting our soil tested every 2 to 3 years.

The Tech Rep for our area is Miles Payne and you can get him on 0407 100 909

Cheers

Roger

Can anyone tell me where you get this stuff? how much does it cost?
is it a liquid or powder?
Sounds like a good thing, I have talked to our green keeper and he would like to know more about it.
I looked at the web site and when I clicked on contact us I got an American phone number. Is there some where in Australia to contact?

Hi Croquet Greenkeepers,

A couple of our colleague golf club greenkeepers have suggested we apply
a growth regulator called Primo Maxx to our lawns during the summer
growing season. According to the manufacturer, (Syngenta) Primo Maxx
slows vertical shoot growth while lateral and below ground growth is
enhanced. The benefits claimed are a denser, healthier turf that is
better able to withstand a variety of stresses including heat, drought,
diseases and traffic. It almost sounds too good to be true. See:
http://www.greencastonline.com/product/primo-maxx-plant-growth-regulator/overview/turf


If the claimed benefits are achieved for a croquet lawn the use of Primo
Maxx should mean less frequent mowing or, at least, the line marking
should last longer. It also should reduce lawn wear, particular through
the hoops (where we tend to get rabbit runs) and at the GC starting
quadrant.

At Jamberoo we intend to give this product a try but we would be
interested in whether any other clubs have used it and, if so, have the
claimed benefits been achieved in practice on a croquet lawn?

Cheers

Roger Evans

Quadway hoops and new balls

Kaye Martin
 

Hullo All

At Coogee we are starting to make noises about acquiring Quadway hoops as well as new balls.

It is my understanding that several Clubs have already travelled this path.

So based on your experience, could anyone give me ANY information at all that might be of assistance, eg suppliers, costs, what accessories to buy or not to buy? No point in us re-inventing the wheel.

Would appreciate your comments / advice.

Kind regards

I can give you these details when you visit Sydney Club tomorrow as we have now ordered two sets.
One set is already in use, the other set is on the way (may even be here by now).

Dear Kaye

Ray Atkins Quadway Hoops are on the internet.  Just Google Quadway Hoops and all the information, costs etc are there.  Mosman agonised for a time about purchasing them but we can only say that they are an improvement on the old hoops and we are happy with them.

Incidentally, and more importantly, I believe you can get a grant to pay for them.  I suggest your local Council, your local RSL Club, or Grants from the Department of Sport & Recreation.  If you would like a chat please call me on 9904.1720.

Sincerely
Mary Gibson
Secretary
Mosman Croquet Club
