Ballyneal Golf Club
Jared Kalina - Golf Course Superintendent
Firming up the turf at Ballyneal creates a hydrophobic situation for the sandy soil underneath. To break that up, Jared needed a way to apply a wetting agent uniformly across the entire course to get the water to penetrate better. Through the use of their Agri-Inject system, the team at Ballyneal can apply the treatment overnight through the existing irrigation system.

Their custom system allows them to n-pHuric acid and chlorine to keep black algae, sponge and other organic material out of their irrigation and sprinkler heads. This is a huge savings on labor, since they don’t have to go out and clean 200-300 sprinkler heads by hand.
“We save anywhere from 10 to 15 million gallons of water over the course of a season.” — Eric Hill
Kevin Walsh, Turf Management
Each course ecosystem is different, and being able to apply different products though the same irrigation system is critical to golf course superintendents. Kevin Walsh, from Fertizona — Arizona’s largest fertilizer and crop protection retailer — says that Agri-Inject helps golf courses in Arizona battle a specific problem.
