Fans syringing and soil temperature

View Larger

Dr Elizabeth Geurtal (@AUTurfFert on Twitter) posted this graph from her research on soil temperature during the day. In her research, fans combined with syringing were needed to cool soils. Fans alone were insufficient to dramatically cool the soil. If air movement is adequate, fans should not be needed. But, during the hot summer months, the hottest days are frequently the days reporting the lowest average wind speed.
