Superior Insight. Better Decisions. Healthier Turf.

SAMPLE, LOG, ANALYZE & MAP.A Summary of the Complete POGO System


  • Easy: insert POGO Pro into the turf and tap “Sample” on your smartphone/tablet, then move to the next location.
  • Captures moisture, salinity (EC) and canopy temperature with its integrated sensor precisely positioned in the most influential component of the turf system.
  • The exact location of every sample is recorded with every sample.
  • For the typical green, 6-9 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.


  • ƒInstant 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.

  • Sean Kinsley POGO Turf Pro Customer
    I have become a huge fan of the POGO. It is easily one of the best value for money investments I have ever made. For the first time in the history of this property we are getting hard data on what is actually happening down in the profile. This is helping us realize huge water savings over time and is informing big changes to our flushing schedules and gypsum/wetting agent applications, making them much more effective and cost efficient. The POGOs we purchased paid for themselves within a matter of weeks and are now a must have tool for all supers in my opinion.

  • Dario Pascua POGO Turf Pro Customer
    Having managed both cool and warm season turf, I understand the changing dynamics in irrigation and nutrient applications. When the best decision is not made, it can be costly. Using POGO removes any guesswork—I know exactly what’s going on when it comes to managing moisture, salts and fertilizer. POGO is my most valuable resource in my daily operations.

  • Craig Haldane POGO Turf Pro Customer
    POGO has allowed us to track our VWC% on a daily basis, and given us the ability to apply exactly what’s required on every individual green. We also have a definite indicator as to what our EC levels are, and where. We’re able to forecast, plan and prepare so much better and our greens have never been more consistent. I highly recommend it—it’s easy to use, gives us great data and makes it easy to understand what the data really means, giving us what we need to make the right decisions.

  • Kurt Beatty POGO Turf Pro Customer
    I’d highly recommend purchasing POGO. You’re going to see savings of money and time, as far as watering and chemicals and fertilizer because you’ll be treating your grounds more selectively—based on what it tells you, instead of just applying it across the board.

  • Ken Lochridge POGO Turf Pro Customer
    The POGO is an incredible tool. I can takes samples in the morning then print out a visual map of each green to hand to my staff so they know exactly where to hand water and where not to. It gives me moisture to EC and temperature data I need to make great correlations so I can manage my greens better.
