GBR provide us with in depth technical information which is delivered in and honest and open way which is something I really like. I’ve been able to work with GBR to create a bespoke turf hardening mix which had worked really well on our site.
It's been superb at evenly balancing moisture levels in the profile.
The product worked very well for us, with the main benefit being how much quicker we dried out after heavy rainfall. Greens and approaches became firmer and drier much quicker than in previous years and out clegg hammer readings remained in target even after heavy downpours. We had very even moisture cover over the green area with no dry patch visible and a marked reduction in fairy ring activity. I am very pleased with the results we have had and I will continue to use it again in the future.
The difference between hand watering with and without a pellet is massive. I intend to continue to use hand watering with Aquazone Pellets. Also GBR's spreadable iron with 12% Fe gives a really nice green-up and hardening off against disease - the product is easy to use and has uniform granule size.
Hydrozone has given us very good results, performing at least as well as previous products we have used. Hydrozone is an important part of our water management programme making the best use of our irrigation system. We have also been a long term user of Forti-Fe and find this product gives the green-up we desire along with a bit of N to tickle the greens along through the winter.
We apply the Aquazone at 50lts a hectare twice a year and it definitely keeps the dry patch away. We also use Influx on some isolated areas in extremely dry occasions if these areas become hydrophobic.
I have been using GBR for the last two years. Peter provides me with all the technical data needed, before a product is purchased. Competitive prices backed up by the correct information gives me the confidence that the product is right for my purpose.
Since Peter has visited, he and GBR have revolutionised the way in which I purchase products. More importantly, the way that the products are specifically promoted by Peter to my needs and not his, I personally find very refreshing. He takes the time to understand the route I choose with regards to the products I use and not just advertise products that he wishes to sell. Peter is always happy to provide advice whenever we discuss arising problems and concerns out on the course. I also feel it is a great testament to Peter that the team enjoy his visits for a chance to bounce ideas around with him, as all too often, reps can visit with a sense of duty rather than enjoyment. It is of no surprise that because of this the majority of my products are purchased with GBR.
The results I have found since using GBR soluble straights and the advice given has been hugely beneficial. Pete is extremely knowledgeable and explains how the products work in conjunction with biostimulants such as seaweed and fulvic acid. Very little disease in the winter and all my greens looking good and performing well. I have been using mainly soluble straights since the middle of last year and I have seen steady and consistent improvements in all my greens.
St Annes Old Links Golf Club have been working with GBR Technology since 2015. In that time the course has faced several challenges including significant drought and pest damage. We are looking forward to continuing our working relationship with GBR as we aim for further improvements in the quality and conditioning of the golf course in the future.
Due to its trace element package and readily available nutrition the plant health is better throughout the winter too. It hardens the turf so disease resistance is improved. I also tank mix it with other products which is another great benefit.
Forti-Fe, Calcium Nitrate, Magnesium Nitrate and Fulvic Acid Powder have become our go to mix before games for exceptional colour. We also use a range of granular fertilisers, Kelpak, Chitosan, Molasses, Hydrozone and Intensive Wetter. The support we get from Nathan is also first class.
We utilise a number of products including granular fertilisers, soluble straights, seaweed, molasses and wetting agents. The cost saving compared to previous suppliers has allowed us to improve our fairways, while also making great strides in encouraging perennial grasses on our putting surfaces.
Hydrozone has played a key role in our moisture management on greens, while using Aquazone on tee’s and fairways has helped to keep localised dry patch at bay. We also use Forti-Fe to provide a colour up and soluble seaweed powder to support plant health.
It’s given great uniformity across the greens with surfaces being kept moist but firm with the bulk of the moisture being held in the rootzone. Even in the hottest days over the summer the turf has remained stress free. We will continue to use it over the winter and throughout 2022.
Endew Plus has made a significant difference to our greens through the autumn and winter period. When we initially started using it, we left half the chipping green untreated as a control. Endew Plus helps us maintain the highest possible condition of the turf throughout the autumn and winter. Combined with our other practices, our greens are more resistant to disease, healthy and have reduced morning dew to ensure a drier cut and less mess on the surfaces.
