Aeration is one of many tasks necessary to ensure quality putting green turf, but it comes with a cost. When core aerating greens the golf course will either shut down for a day, or close each 9 for two days to get done. After this labor intensive job there is a week or two of waiting for the turf to heal until the greens are back to normal. How much is the revenue reduced in that time period through lost rounds, heavy discounts and lost sales in the pro shop and restaurant? These are concerns that face all decision makers who are responsible for a healthy bottom line.
Here is a solution.

DryJect proprietary equipment is a proven technology. High pressure water penetrates the root zone, and dry amendments including sand / peat mixtures, inorganic soil amendments and more are injected into the aeration holes.

No lost time waiting for the greens to heal, with fewer complaints from golfers about poor putting conditions. DryJect aeration is very effective and is a viable alternative to core aeration.
I believe this is an excellent method of keeping and improving golf courses up to date and excellent to play on. I noted that several different Items can be inserted at the time of aeriation. I have a organic plant enhancer. worm casting tea, that would accelerate and improve the soil quality and improve the soil microbial conditions while strengthening the turf.
Good stuff, as usual, J.J.
