Advances in Technology: GPS Spraying, Laser Cutting and Drone Diagnosis Will Change Turfgrass
Midwest golf courses and turfgrass suppliers have always been early adopters of “new technology” such as reel mowers and moisture meters. To measure temperature and humidity levels, don’t be surprised to soon see drones survey the course to determine possible turf diseases. Automation has enabled superintendents with control over an entire irrigation system through their smartphone in just a few clicks. Advances in on-course technology have allowed golf course experts to be more accurate, efficient and ultimately save money by using less product, more precisely.
