NZ Cricket First Class Venue WOFS

Project: NZ Cricket First Class Venue WOFS
Client: New Zealand Cricket
Timeframe: 2017

SSDM was directly engaged as the preferred agronomy provider for New Zealand Cricket, to carry out a number of independent WOFs at a selection of first class cricket venues in New Zealand.

These WOFs typically involved measuring the performance of existing cricket blocks and outfields against a set of predetermined performance criteria.


Testing criteria included:

  • Surface infiltration measurement
  • Organic matter (%) content of block and outfield
  • Surface species composition of outfield
  • Block performance
  • Soil nutrient analysis


SSDM developed a purpose made 'Dashboard' that provided the client with a quick reference and 'easy to read' interpretation of the results alon with recommended remedial actions.
