Over the past last summers, we found that in Los Arqueros Golf it had been appearing, as in many golf courses throughout the Mediterranean region a terrible infestation caused by a monocot weed, which until recently time was not taken into Spain as a pest. The "Eleusine Indica" (also called Goosegrass). A powerful root system, forming a clump firmly anchored to the ground. It has the particularity to glean from a level very close to the ground, producing a large quantity of seed (about 10,000 per plant).
On last Friday June the 15th, Los Arqueros Golf fertilized its 18 fairways with 9800 Kg of slow release fertilizers, ENTEC 20-10-10.
