Abstract

Abstract

Playing surfaces of sports fields are modified by incorporating peat, sand, and other chemically inert materials. In this study, incorporating peat produced a more favorable response than Hygromull, Hygropor, or Agrosil. Hygropor reduced water conductivity in sand soils and had no impact on water movement in silt and clay soils. Agrosil produced a favorable response only when added to a lava/sand mix low in humus.
