Turf Troubles at Central Oval

grass.JPGA recent report on Central Oval in Port Augusta has revealed the turf needs extensive upgrades.
Contributing factors to the poor state of the oval include uneven surface levels, surface contours, fertility issues, irrigation issues, and variable turf coverage.
These problems have been intensified over the past year due to the high temperatures and limited rain fall in comparison to the previous summer.
Despite previous efforts from the Port Augusta City Council to revive the turf, improvements will not be seen unless an extensive upgrade is undertaken to the irrigation, root zone and surface.
The report will be put to the council but it suggests works should be carried out at the end of the 2019 season in order to be completed by 2020.
