Wednesday starts off as a second cut day for the fields, ensuring to keep the blades fresh and at the proper height. After the mowing crew goes through, other grounds crew members will apply a foliar spray if necessary. It is important that the foliar spray (turf multivitamin) is applied quickly after the first cut happens because within the first 2 hours after a mow the 90% of the nutrients provided by the spray are absorbed by the turf. Not only does the spray provide the nutrients to the grass, it also acts as a buffer to the fresh cut blades to almost protect the turf! This process can be tedious due to the vast number of fields we have.
