TDR 300 Field Scout Meter

This summer we have utilized a couple of new soil moisture meters called a TDR 300 Field Scout Meter. Perhaps you have seen some of our staff members walking around putting greens testing the greens with the meters. These meters give us a very accurate, real time reading as to what the moisture is in the green at that particular time of day. We now know if our irrigation system is working properly, or if we have over watered or under watered a area. We also are learning to keep putting greens drier, which really allows for much better playing conditions. We plan to purchase 3 more meters in the future and you will see more of us out there testing the soil.
