Bangkok, Thailand: Quality Golf Asia has been appointed by Stevens Water Monitoring Systems as a certified POGO Distributor in Thailand and surrounding countries.
“We are excited to be able to bring this vital technology to Thailand and surrounding countries,” said Tony Taylor, Certified Golf Course Superintendent and Executive Director of Quality Golf, a Full Business Member of the Asian Golf Industry Federation.
“From my experience I have found that water monitoring and management is one of the most misunderstood subjects in golf course maintenance. This tool will certainly help provide the faster, firmer and healthier turf conditions that all golfers desire.”
With minimal effort, the POGO provides unparalleled insight into turf and soil conditions.
The built in Wi-Fi and free App which can be downloaded from iTunes or Google Play store allows you to collect and display data in the palm of your hand using your smartphone.
The POGO focuses on capturing moisture, salinity (EC) and canopy temperature, which are the most influencing components of the turf system.
The POGO quickly and easily identifies factors that affect surface performance while allowing the user to make quick and direct decisions to offset ailments that will diminish turf performance and conditions.
It can be used for adjusting irrigation practices, nutritional inputs, cultural practices and integrated pest management decisions. It can be easily customised to meet specific operational needs.
While the POGO is powerful in itself, Stevens’ POGO Turf Pro cloud-based analytical and mapping systems allows the user to link the POGO data to this cloud-based programme for further analysis.
To learn more about the POGO, visit the Quality Golf booth at the Asian Golf Industry Federation’s Turfgrass Management Exposition at Chonburi’s Laem Chabang International Country Club on the afternoon of March 8.
Taylor and Carmen Magro, Vice President, Business Development/Agronomist Stevens Water Monitoring Systems, will be there to answer questions.
