Turf cover Domen C saved the pitch of the sports base of FC 'Zenit' from freezing

 

 

Turf cover Domen C saved the pitch of the sports base of FC "Zenit" from freezing.

The greenkeepers of sports base of FC "Zenit" applied protective turf cover Domen-C on the pitch at subzero temperatures, reaching down to minus - 15⁰C. The turf cover retained the heat and kept the temperature of the root zone up to +10⁰C, +13⁰C. As a result grass was not winter killed. Due to evaporation and low atmospheric temperature white frost formed which was pretty easy to clean up but the amount of soil moisture was lost. There were days when trainings were conducted during afternoon. By this time the white frost under the turf cover and snow (at 0.5 - 1cm of snow depth) on the surface of the turf cover had time to melt.

It is shown in the photos that the pitch is wet and the water from the surface of the protective cover is being drained on the field.

Trainings on the pitch of FC Zenit training base resumed this year since 9 February. Though the turf was in a good condition but after everyday trainings it thinned considerably and the agronomists of the club repaired the pitch by reseeding grass. The football pitch was covered by turf cover Domen C for a few days and the grass sprouted quickly enough. Despite the fact that the cover have been lying on the pitch for more than three days, the apparent negative results were not observed. Fungicides were applied for lawn disease prevention and due to the above-zero temperatures under the turf cover it worked well.
