Turf Rehydration Applicator (TRA)

Gyral, in conjunction with Water Conservation, have developed a machine to help reduce water consumption in parks and on sporting fields.

The TRA is designed to sow water crystals and granular fertiliser at the root depth of the grass.  The water crystals absorb water and release it on-demand to the roots.  This drastically reduces water consumption by up to 50%.  Applying the fertiliser at root depth also helps to prevent run-off, thus making the fertiliser more effective and also helping to make our water ways cleaner and greener. 

The TRA uses Gyral's patented pressurised bin technology along with a sowing knife and press wheel assembly to provide accurate sowing with minimal disturbance to the ground.  Fields can be used within 1-2 days of using the TRA.
