Turf and Lawn Fertilising

The need to keep accurate records and accurately apply fertilizers more often at decreasing rates per hectare is driven by environmental concerns and increasingly economical turf management practices.

With this in mind, Lovegrove Turf Services “jumped the field” several years ago by introducing spreaders guided by Differential Group Positioning Systems off satellites.

GPS has been around for a long time in aeronautical and maritime navigation.
Several years ago it moved into agriculture and with the introduction of DGPS to give accuracy within 60mm, it was ready for horticulture.

With these accurate records Lovegrove Turf Services can offer:


Proof of accurate applications of fertilizers and wetting agents.
No-argument computer records.
Environmental responsibility.
