Texas A&M Agriculture Class Project featuring AirField Systems AirDrain for Natural Turf ! Go Texas A&M
AirDrain For Natural Turf
It was concluded thru a research project conducted at Texas A&M University that irrigation needs can be reduced by using AirField Systems AirDrain. This five year research project was jointly funded by the United States Golf Association and AirField Systems, and was a collaborative effort between Texas A&M University, AirField Systems and the United States Golf Association. The data from the research showed that the AirField Systems drainage profile provided between 1-3 more days of plant available water than a United States Golf Association recommended gravel and sand profile.

The AirDrain System has a unique ability no other system has in that it can flush the profile quickly and efficiently anytime its needed. This practice is particularly common where salt laden irrigation water is used and in areas along the East Coast, Gulf Coast, California coast, and Desert Southwest.
