New Guides Offer Tips on Athletic Field Surface Hardness Measurement and Management

Posted: February 25, 2016

Penn State's Center for Sports Surface Research has published two new guides addressing measurement and management of surface hardness on athletic fields. These guides - one for natural grass and one for synthetic turf - explain techniques to measure surface hardness as well as maintenance practices to reduce surface hardness. These guides are available under the 'Resources' section our website.

The natural grass guide can be found here and the synthetic turf guide is available here.
