The ‘Plantation’ Equestrian Centre in Dubail UAE was getting ready for an International Polo Tournament. In preparing the virgin site on highly sandy soils, the owners followed advice of turf consultant Rob McFarlane of Turfarm UAE and installed a Hydrosmart.
Using Hydrosmart’s water conditioning approach to overcome levels of around 15,500 TDS ppm from bore water with a pH which ranges from 3.5 – 4 (considered highly acidic for plant growth ). Watering takes place daily, with 80,000 square meters being watered with 150,000 gallons of treated bore water.
Using Hydrosmart to improve grass growth
When interviewed Rob said of the turf growth over a period of 24 weeks:
“Using only Hydrosmart to treat the water, we have seen unbelievable results in a short time with an enormous increase in growth with lower disease and pest attacks than at any other site around.
The turf looks lush and healthy and is ready ahead of schedule for the November tournament. I will install Hydrosmart onto several other sites about to commence similar undertakings. This water is being used now on plants lining the driveway, nursery and is promoting healthy plant growth of many types of plants as well”
