Acidification Research Project

Agronomist Corey Angelo is conducting a 2 year research project for the SNGCSA. He will be reviewing 3 different methods of soil acidification. The first method is the sole use of a sulfur burner currently being used at Boulder Creek Golf Club. The second method will combine the use of a sulfur burner and sulfuric acid injection; this is being done at Anthem Country Club. The third method tested will be the use of a sprayable acid known as pHacid.

This is being tested at Canyon Gate Country Club. This study will compare and contrast both soil and water testing results over a two-year period that began in the summer of 2013.
