Systematic improvement notes

With routine measurement of surface conditions, it’s possible to adjust the work in a systematic way to make the conditions better, for more days in the year, than I once thought possible.

We discussed these particular items (shown in the slide below), which are all connected in both playability and in turfgrass performance.
