Brandon Grissom, turf manager at Innovative Turf Application and Consulting (ITAC), says  the company has found success through its use of compost in sports field management.  According to Grissom, compost positively impacts soil structure and that, in turn, improves moisture retention — something that both he and his customers quickly picked up on. “We saw how big of a difference it (compost) made versus a synthetic product,” he said.
