New book on soil

Groundskeepers have the extraordinary task of convincing turf to grow where it otherwise wouldn’t. The sands beneath elite fields, the compacted clay of cricket wickets, and ever-increasing hours of foot traffic are at odds with what plants consider a hospitable environment. The challenges of urban green space management are just some of the topics covered in Grounded, a new book by soil scientist Alisa Bryce.

Establishing grass health and condition with one device

The Labosport Redbox simultaneously maps the density and colour of grass surfaces objectively and consistently. The lightweight and easy to operate device improves the ergonomics of testing surfaces and works on any cool or warm season grass type. All numerical and visual data collected is stored in one folder and can be accessed by the client through an app from a client-specific dashboard.
