The trouble with astro-turf ...

Is that, unlike real grass, it wears out.

That's a fact.

The other problem, of course, is that, (despite the fact that it's a Monsanto invention), you can't kill it with this Monsanto invention.

Unlike real grass, it has no roots. Where real grass, once established, adapts to its environment and then takes hold, astro-turf is held in place by another artificial substance - glue.

So ... the best way to get rid of the astro-turf is to dissolve the glue.

Um, actually, the best way, the only way to remove the astro-turf is to generate counter-FUD in Stevie's heartland. The PC supporters have to be targeted for FUD: Fear, Uncertainty, Doubt.

Now, for this to happen, the 'progressive' side has to pull the pickle out, and get a game plan together. Just posting on progressive blogs doesn't get the job done, because Stevie's base doesn't read 'em.

If the Turf Sunshine Coast grasses can cope up with the stress, it will be healthy and dense and will be able to resist disease. Sometime the disease may spread and it becomes out of any control. However, the disease resistant cultivars can be implemented to avoid future problems.
