A comprehensive report is generated by our Agronomist after the sample has been analysed. He gives his suggestions on what product(s) can be used to fix any issues and comment on the general status of the analysed area.
The portable, wireless, durable, easy-to-use tool that provides greater insight…so you can make better decisions about managing your turf
Unmatched precision. Better decisions
POGO helps you know what’s happening below the surface, across the entire green.
It brings pure science and precision to the art of turf management, using a patented sensor, automated analysis and visual reporting. POGO helps you achieve consistently perfect turf while optimizing water and fertilizer use.
Only POGO’s patented sensor accurately measures ALL 4 of the most influential variables (moisture, salinity (EC), canopy temperature and salinity index) governing turf performance and how they impact each other. Decision-making to apply water, nutrients and cultural practices have never been more precise!
The process is quick and easy!
Easy: insert POGO into the turf and tap “Add Sample” on your smartphone/tablet, then move to the next location.
Captures moisture, salinity (EC), salinity index, surface temperature and soil temperature (POGO Pro+ only) with its integrated sensor, set a the precise depth to measure the most influential component of the turf system.
The exact location of every sample is recorded with every sample.
For the typical green, 9-12 samples is sufficient. This takes under 2 minutes.
Captured data is stored in the app that runs on Apple or Android devices.
Using integrated GPS, log sprinkler locations, cup placement, ball speed, slope and boundary (and more) of the green or any zone.
Record notes and capture photos. Eliminate paper records and share easily. Retrieve at any time.
The simple-to-use, all-in-one system replaces multiple pieces of equipment and manual processes, providing unparalleled efficiency.
Instant analysis is performed while taking samples, providing the power of decision making in the palm of your hand. More thorough analysis is automatically performed on all data once uploaded to the cloud.
Our unique Visual Insight provides detailed analysis of the data you capture automatically, so you never need to wade through numbers or charts.
Real-time, clear and accurate irrigation, nutritional and uniformity assessments provide complete understanding of turf and soil conditions, water and fertilizer management optimization and causes of stress.
Actionable conclusions to maximize turfgrass health using scientific insight, with minimal effort.
Map sprinkler patterns and uniformity assessments.
Assess area measurements precisely.
Map features unique to your property…easily.
Practice more efficient water, nutrient, turf enhancement, and IPM applications by knowing impacts on turfgrass performance at all times. Eliminate guessing and make decisions based on precise conditions.
Predict and avoid future problems.
No other system gives you this level of analysis and insight without leaving the turf!
Fully integrated system
POGO hardware is the foundation of the POGO system. After all, you can’t produce the kind of scientific insight you need without a truly special sensor to collect highly precise data.
All POGO hardware is based on a patented soil sensor called HydraProbe™. The HydraProbe is the most scientifically researched soil sensor in the world.
POGO TurfPro Cloud
The POGO system doesn’t just record and present the raw data for you to interpret. Because your time is limited, you really want an analysis.
POGO TurfPro Cloud automatically analyzes your data and presents it visually with every upload from the app. See variations of moisture, salinity, temperature, ball speed, firmness and more across every zone of your course(s), and understand the effects of their interaction. This makes it quick and easy for you, and everyone else on staff to perform Best Management Practices (BMPs) by applying precisely what is needed when it’s needed.
POGO TurfPro Mobile
The free TurfPro Mobile app turns your Apple or Android smartphone or tablet into a data acquisition and logging system that collects, displays and logs turf conditions measured by the wirelessly-connected POGO.
The app displays real-time analytics and assessments of turf/soil moisture, salinity and temperature. This allows for timely reaction to conditions that could lead to costly problems.
Critical alerts advise you of conditions measured that require immediate attention while you are on the course.
Accurately measures ALL 4 of the most influential variables
Only POGO’s patented sensor accurately measures ALL 4 of the most influential variables governing turf performance and how they impact each other. In addition, the exact location (within 1 metre) of each sample is recorded with the integrated, professional-grade GPS receiver. It’s this location data that allows POGO to show an analysis of the data visually on a map, so you know exactly where you need to focus your efforts and why. Decision-making to apply water, nutrients and cultural practices has never been more precise!
