SPaRKS, the Superintendents Planning and Record Keeping System, launches new website

SPaRKS, the Superintendents Planning and Record Keeping System, recently launched a completely updated website at The web-based planning and record keeping system helps sports field managers and golf course superintendents plan, schedule, calculate, and control applications of pesticides and fertilizers. The system also makes it easy for sports field managers to comply with regulations of inputs on their facilities, as well as stay on top of worker safety sheets and compliance logs.

The SPaRKS web-based system was created by a team of IT and turf industry professionals who understand the needs of the golf course superintendent. It provides powerful planning tools for:

  • Budgeting of fertilizers and other inputs
  • Scheduling of applications year after year
  • Calculating the right amount of product to use in each application
  • Generating accurate reports

SPaRKS is available as a web-based subscription and is priced at only $239 per year.

“Monitoring chemical and fertilizer usage and costs has never been more important,” said Mike Plague, partner, Sydney Solutions, the company behind SPaRKS. “We wanted our new website to give turf managers a clear, concise overview of our system and encourage them to sign up for our free 30-day trial.”

The new SPaRKS website was developed by the team at What’s Your Avocado? Marketing & Public Relations, a firm that specializes in turfgrass industry marketing.
