This webinar will introduce performance testing of sports fields. Dr. Gerald Henry from University of Georgia will present “Enhancing Athletic Field Safety” on Monday, July 2 at 1 pm ET.
Performance testing of sports fields is necessary to quantify surface properties such as hardness and traction. Enhancements in sensor/sampling technology and increased concern for athlete safety and field performance has driven interest. Spatial maps created from sensors/samplers can depict variability of soil and plant parameters that directly impact turfgrass health, field playability, and player safety. Information generated from sensors/samplers can be used to adjust irrigation systems, implement site-specific management, rotate fields, determine optimal playing conditions, justify equipment use/purchase, and better understand the influence of field conditions on player safety.
