Jack Birdwell has been Golf Course Superintendent at Comanche Trail Golf Course in Big Spring, Texas for more than 15 years. Managing salt levels in the soil is a constant obstacle at the course due to its location in a high drought area.
“During the winter months, average rainfall is about 3 inches if we are lucky so salt accumulates on the greens and you can even see crystals forming if you don’t manage it.”
Over the years Jack tried a variety of techniques, including gypsum applications, to manage the winter buildup of salts on his greens.
About 18 months ago Jack tried KaPre® ExAlt on his greens and really noticed a difference. Jack applies KaPre® ExAlt at 32 oz. per acre for the first 3 or 4 applications in the spring and then cuts that to the 16 oz. per acre rate every 2 to 3 weeks through the rest of the season. He alternates weekly applications with Pennamin® High K at 2 pounds per acre and noticed a big difference in the look and play of the turf.
“My greens are better, remarkably better. I get comments now about how good the greens are.”
