As a sports field manager, there is a constant battle to not only keep your field aesthetically pleasing, but also safe and playable. One of the biggest frustrations that I hear repeated over and over is trying to maintain proper infield moisture.
There are several factors that can impact infield moisture conditions. For instance, the type of infield mix you start with can play a factor in how moist or dry your field stays. Trying to account for all these factors can lead to management frustrations and field conditions that may be unsuitable for play. When AquaSmart PRO first became available, I had to get a sample to see how the product worked for managing infield moisture. Let’s just say I was not disappointed!
Fields that notoriously dried out and turned into a dustbowl stayed playable longer between rewetting. Utilizing this product allows grounds crew personnel to spend more time on other field preparations.
So how does it work?
AquaSmart PRO is a super absorbent polymer coated microsand. A single particle of this product can hold up to 12 times its weight in water. Depending on site-specific soil conditions, AquaSmart PRO has demonstrated water savings ranging from 50 percent for sandy soils all the way up to 70 percent for clay type soils. Talk about a powerful weapon for your battle against moisture management!
