Over-seeding is more important than ever to maintain a healthy playing surface; particularly when pesticide use is less and less of an option. Managing and mitigating weeds and disease requires a dense turf canopy. Over-seeding can ensure the most modern turf species are being introduced so that dense juvenile turf can handle the rigors of play. Caution: not all seeders or seeding methods are equal. St Johns Turf Care uses a double disc slice seeding method that has the highest germination success rate on the market…96%! Broadcast applications have as low as 30% success rate.
Here is Slit Seeding for a Spring Training facility in Sarasota, Fl. and a video of a school in Gainesville using the Vredo Slit Seeder.
