THIS WEEK’S FIELD TIP

School is back in session and fall sports are gearing up, that means it’s painting season! We who maintain baseball and softball fields stumble along all season painting a handful of lines at most, but it’s those who maintain football and soccer fields who are the true painting pros out there with all of the painting they need to do at this time of year. The professionals and colleges paint weekly for bright, vivid and stunning athletic masterpieces.

Lower levels of play struggle to get their fields painted due to tight financial budgets, lack of sufficient time to get on the fields to paint, or issues with having knowledgeable and capable people available to perform the layout and painting tasks.

These situations deserve the consideration of using Plant Growth Regulators (PGRs) to help paint last longer on your fields. When mixed at the proper rate with diluted field paint, PGRs can allow painted field lines and artwork to last anywhere from 2 to 3 weeks longer on the turf surface before repainting is needed.  Continue reading on Ballfields.com to learn about the advantages of PGRs in the article: Making the Painting Season Less Painful
