Abstract/Contents:"About the same time as the publication of DIN 18035/4 ("Sports pitches-turf surfaces"), in the mid-seventies, the idea developed of preparing ready-to-use rootzone mixtures for grass sports pitches, made in central production plants according to exactly specified prescriptions to achieve consistent quality irrespective of destination. The next step was the production of the "Guidelines for conducting and evaluating tests on ready-to-use rootzone mixtures for grass sports pitches, supplementing DIN 18035/4" ("REBR"), of the Federal Institute for Sports Science (BISp). The test, consist[s] of [:] laboratory tests, growing plot trials (in two parts), and regular check-testing. At present four products, Lavaterr, Hygromix, Vegadur and Terrasoil, are subject to regular independant [independant] supervision. About 120,000 tons are produced annually, enough for 65-75 pitches, assuming a layer thickness of 12 cm. On the basis of calculation, about 425-450 full size pitches have been built with ready-to-use rootzone mixtures, 15-30% of them outside the Federal Republic, mainly in Switzerland in soil-connected constructions where the layers in fact are not so thick."
