RESULTS

ALFALFA 

PRM alfalfa outperforms the Control time and time again, even when the cards are stacked against us. Our farmer let us run PRM on a 4 year stand and selected a 2 year stand as control. 

 

PRM RESULTS:

  • Increased quality (RFV)
  • Increased yield 
  • Reduced weed pressure, no herbicides
  • Denser, healthier field of alfalfa
  • Less cost, more revenue.

Control
3 apps of herbicides ($30/A)
Prevalent weeds

PRM
0 apps of herbicides
No weeds

CORN

We ran a season long trial on silage corn in two adjacent fields, separated by a 2 lane road. Looking at the yield data and the photos, our results are apparent:

 

PRM RESULTS:

  • Increased yield by 20%
  • Reduced weed pressure
  • No herbicides

Control

PRM

ARIZONA NATIONAL

Before beginning a PRM program, Arizona National faced issues with compaction, high runoff, bare spots throughout fairways, and thin roughs with low turf density. Their location in the Sonoran Desert also meant extremely high expense for water and fertility.

 

2016-2017 PRM RESULTS:

  • Turf filled in and density increased
  • Improved water infiltration and decreased runoff
  • Saved $130,000 in water
  • Saved $80,000 in fertility
  • Set record for number of rounds played — over 4,000 in March 2017

Before

Turf conditions before PRM treatment began: bare spots and poor playing conditions.

After

Improved playing conditions and consistent turf after treatment.

RIVERBIRCH

Before PRM, Riverbirch suffered from severe latch layering (1-2″) that created an entirely perched water table, with little to no roots reaching into the compacted, dry soil (VWC 4-6%).

2018/2019 RESULTS

  • Reduced thatch and compaction
  • Root zone expansion
  • Increased turf density

 See photos below for visuals of Before / After comparison of the PRM trial at Riverbirch.

Turf Before

Dry brown patches cover both the Test and Control areas.

Turf After

Test area has improved in color and turf density.

Root Zone Before

Shallow root zone before, which stayed consistent in Control.

Root Zone After

Root depth increased by several inches in Test area.

PINECREST

Pinecrest ran a PRM trial on their greens during the 2019 season. Before beginning a PRM program, Pinecrest experienced moderate thatch layering, compaction and infiltration rates on their greens. We demonstrated a significant improvement in turf quality and playing conditions with PRM.

PRM RESULTS:

  • Thatch — 60% decrease
  • Root zone — 148% increase
  • Compaction — 90% decrease
  • Drainage — 17% increase

See photos below to see the overall difference in turf quality. We saw improvements in denser, greener and more consistent turf.

 

Before

7 green before, with inconsistent density and color. 

After

7 green after, looking denser and more consistent.

Before

Close up shot of 7 green before.

After

Close up shot of 7 green after.

EAGLE HILLS

Eagle Hills ran a scaled trial of PRM during the 2019 season, running an isolated program on the front 9 in order to keep the back 9 as a control.

PRM RESULTS:

  • Thatch — 36% decrease
  • Root zone — 81% increase
  • Compaction — 41% decrease
  • Drainage — 15% increase

CONTROL RESULTS:

  • Thatch — 7% increase
  • Root zone reduction — no change / slight decrease
  • Compaction — 20% increase
  • Drainage — 55% decrease

Before

5 tee before, with inconsistent turf density, color, signs of heat stress.

After

5 tee after, visibly more dense, consistent, and no signs of heat stress.
