Turf & Rec presents the fifth episode in a six-part podcast series, exploring regenerative soil science.
Our guest is Randy Booker, golf course superintendent at Otter Creek Golf Club in Otterville, Ont. and principal of Turf Evolution. Over the past several years, he has subscribed to the practice of regenerative soil science in managing his golf course, noting the strategy has reduced his reliance on such inputs as fertilizer and pesticides and has allowed microorganisms in the soil to flourish which, he says, sets the stage for healthy turf to be realized.
In this fifth episode, Randy talks about how regenerative soil science practices should be encouraged in regions where pesticide bans are enforced, and explains how the practice is effective within all sectors of the turf industry, including golf, lawn care and sports turf.
