Testing Your Mix - What Do the Results Mean? - GRAVEL

This is the first of 4 posts explaining in detail what each part of an infield mix test result includes and what it means to your infield.

Today we discuss gravel.  This is typically the least amount of material in an infield mix.  Gravel is any material in the 12.5 mm to 2 mm range.  Gravel can typically range from smaller stones to even some sizes of conditioner.  As a rule of thumb, infield mixes should contain less than 3% 2 mm gravel.

Bottom line, infield mixes should be screened and no gravel should be present.

In the next post we will look at the overall sand content.
