Expert Turf Tips

  • From this ……to this……… just 6 weeks - The Turf Growers Association WA has worked collaboratively with the Water Corporation to build this really good little guide on “How to bring your brown lawn back to life”. The usual reflex with a brown lawn is to give it a good soak, but it’s not just water your lawn needs to survive the heat.… Continue Reading
  • Sprinkler TIP - Avoid using a combination of sprinkler types in a single irrigation station. Each sprinkler type distributes water at a different rate. Without uniform sprinkler types, you may find brown patches appear on your lawn. For example, pop up sprinklers generally take between 13 and 20 minutes to put down 10mm of water, while rotary sprinklers… Continue Reading
  • Summer Tip - With the heat of summer upon us, it’s time to check if you’re irrigating your lawns and gardens effectively. The best way to measure whether you are applying 10mm of water per irrigation is by conducting a catch cups trial to measure your irrigation output.

Look out for Fall Army Worm especially in your newly laid turf. This pest is reportable if you do happen to see it in your lawn. Fall Army Worm has only recently entered Australia, it has moved throughout the country at the speed of light and can decimate your lawn over night. The adult moths move on the full moon and can travel hundreds of kilometres at a time. We have, for years, had problems with standard army worm in healthy and especially new turf in warmer months here in WA. You may be experiencing issues with these pests too right now. Either species can be eliminated in your lawn by using an unscheduled product called Acelepryn. It is not often that you will see our association talk about products and significantly chemical products for obvious reason. This product however is recommended because it is an unscheduled treatment, "that can be applied with absolutely no concerns for the health and safety of applicators. On the environmental front, the inherent behaviour of the product is to stay exactly where it is applied. It doesn’t move into adjacent areas, doesn’t move into flowers, doesn’t impact native wild life and won’t harm pets using the surfaces". If you are concerned that you may have an infestation of Fall Army Worm, please do report to the Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development – Agriculture and Food as per below photo. #pests #fallarmyworm #armyworm #destructive #lawns#turf #eatingeverythinginsight See MoreSee Less

Armyworm are in epidemic proportion this year. If your lawn literally goes brown overnight, it’s likely to be this critter. Acelepryn is an unscheduled treatment, meaning that it is environmentally and physically safe to use, and it’s the one treatment that will stop these little buggers in their tracks, before they decimate greenery.

Some farms have lost full bays of turf overnight! Hopefully these destructive beasts don’t bring the whole family back tonight! #feralpigs #biosecurity #destruction #turf See MoreSee Less
