Eco Turf: The Podcast Ep. 6

July 17, 2023  By Turf & Rec

Turf & Rec presents the sixth and final 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 sixth episode, Randy talks about the need for monitoring what is happening within the soil, explains how the plant “talks” to the microbes and addresses the different types of soil testing involved.
