The Infrared thermometer is easy to use, and since it does not have to make contact with the turf, it is a quick way to access turfgrass stress. Using an infrared thermometer will eliminate potential damage and contamination.  The Infrared thermometer is easy to use, just pull the trigger, aim the laser and the temperature is displayer on the large bright amber back-lit LCD display.

Golf Greens

Using an infrared thermometer is an excellent method to check the canopy and soil temperatures in a green.  An infrared thermometer can be used to monitor hot spots on a putting green. During wilt, canopy temperatures rise dramatically and the turf shows classic wilt symptoms such as leaf curling, footprinting, and an off-color appearance. In the early stages of wilt, the canopy temperature increases before any wilt symptoms are visible. An infrared thermometer can be used to check for areas that may be heating up but have not shown any visible symptoms. With this early warning tool, crew members can correct a moisture deficit earlier and reduce stress to the green.(1)

Athletic Fields

You can use the infrared thermometer to check the canopy temperature to find hot spots that may require additional water.  By hand watering these areas will decrease stress and make playability more consistent of the entire field.

Artificial Turf

You can use the Infrared Thermometer to determine artificial turf canopy temperature to be sure the field is safe for use.  Some leagues require artificial turf to be tested before pay can commence to be sure the surface temperature is not too high to cause an unsafe playing environment for athletes.
