PoaCure works by stopping the growth of the Poa and allowing bent to overtake and/or out compete. It is a very slow process and most people do not see the full results until the following year. So far, we have seen some reduction in Poa, but not much - which is very normal.
PoaCure may become available next year. But PoaCure will be best suited for golf courses that have recently renovated their greens, helping to keep them pure bent. PoaCure does not fix infrastructure issues (shade, poor construction or drainage or excessive contours) and doe not replace the older bents with the newer bents. The older bents are not very desirable grasses (thick blades, puffy, etc). The new bents are much better than the old. So, for a course like Biltmore with a mix of Poa, old Bents and new Bents, and construction issues we will have to see how PoaCure might fit in to the overall management strategy.
