NATURAL GRASS PERFORMANCE ANALYTICS™

DATA-BASED DECISION MAKING FROM NGAG™

NATURAL GRASS PERFORMANCE ANALYTICS™ is the utilization of data to simplify grass maintenance. Data points, mapped across a grass surface, objectively measure consistency, quality and health. These objective measurements are the foundation for data based management of natural grass surfaces. 

ADVANCED TESTING CAPABILITIES

SURFACE TESTING

With advanced and unique testing equipment, we have the ability to test your surfaces for: 

 

Shock Absorption: Player-generated force absorbed by the surface 

Energy Restitution: Energy rebounded to the player from the surface 

Vertical Deformation: Vertical give in a surface when contact occurs 

Rotational Resistance: Traction and strength that a surface provides 

SOIL NUTRITION & HEALTH

Nutrient availability, water holding, and respiration each play an essential role in soil health to support grass plant life. Data from each: 

Nutrient Availability: Soil and organic matter naturally supply nutrients for grass growth. Nutrient testing quantifies those nutrient amounts to guide all supplemental fertilizer applications. 

Water Holding: Water is stored differently by all soil types. Testing regularly for soil moisture is paramount for data-based irrigation management, yielding a healthy soil and strong plants, while eliminating waste. 

Respiration: Soil respiration measures CO2 released from the soil. Efficient respiration takes place in de-compacted soil with balanced nutrients and adequate water. No soil management program is complete without tracking respiration to ensure management success.

GRASS ACTIVITY MAPPING

Grass activity sensors provide an immediate and objective diagnosis of grass health. A map of grass activity is created in real-time, illustrating variation in vigor not visible to the human eye. This early detection is the foundation for proactive maintenance and efficient resource allocation.
