Dr. Carrow gets right to the point in the very first sentence of his classic article about new technologies and ethical purchasing, writing that “staying on the cutting edge … requires integrating new products and technologies.
A couple weeks ago I was preparing for a seminar in which I discussed Charles Vancouver Piper and the early days of turfgrass science in the United States. I recalled—or quite possibly I misremembered, as I haven’t been able to find it yet—having read some years ago something by Piper about nostrums.
Or at least they had a captivating discussion on The Talking Greenkeeper show.
They talked about a lot of things:
name dropping manga taking shoes off, or not doing things or applying products for a reason what it was like to work for Micah Woods what it’s like to now be assistant GM in addition to head greenkeeper baseball greenkeeping in Japan much more I hope you enjoy this episode of The Talking Greenkeeper as much as I did.
Joe Gulotti had me as a guest on his The Talking Greenkeeper show this week.
We talked about elephant footprints, the MLSN soil nutrient guidelines, measuring clipping volume, my book A Short Grammar of Greenkeeping, the temperature-based turfgrass growth potential, this year’s challenging weather, whether one needs to core and topdress putting green turf, where a #TurfFights episode might be staged, and much more.
Danny Vandecoevering wrote with this interesting email. I thought it was worth sharing here:
A couple weeks ago I asked you a question on twitter [his question was in response to this post] regarding what variation in day to day clipping volume would be considered statistically relevant.
Maybe you saw this from Jeff Johnson a couple days ago.
He’s not kidding. Ok, maybe he was kidding, but we sure had a great time. Alejandro Reyes, the golf course superintendent at Le Golf National for this week’s Ryder Cup, was kind enough to document our discussions in 2016.
