Fertiliser, 'Marathon Sport'
With heavy rain forecast in the afternoon, continuing overnight, Joss spent the morning adding fertiliser to four areas of lawn in the college. Starting with the largest of the lawns, the Nuffield Lawn, Joss doned full protective clothing; suit, gloves, boots and mask to apply the fertiliser granules. Marathon Sport is an extended release, high nitrogen fertiliser that will keep the turf well supplied with nutrients for 8 to 12 weeks after application and, as can be seen in the photograph below, is very dusty during application, hence the need for full protective kit.
