Was wondering if anyone would share their method of application of primo to your greens and tees, we've had mixed success with it and have tried all sorts of different rates and carriers.

Our latest mix on the greens was 150ml of primo and 10l of proturf to 350l of water, which covers 1/2 hectar. This is reapplied every 2 weeks.

On tees we do 250ml of primo and 10l of proturf.


Any thoughts or comments would be brilliant,


many thanks

everything happens for a reason


Hi James,

On my greens i used a bio-stim called Blade and mixed 300ml/hec every 3 weeks with good success but again i will be using a base feed first. On tees i used a base feed called Lebanon 30-5-10 and put 1.6lts/hec "tees cut at 12mm" every 5 weeks and have had great success with this method.

Regards
Brian

Ps its not recommended that you use any more than 300lts/water per hectare when using primo.

Thanks brian,

So you would apply a high n base in order to get the primo into the plant?

As for the amount of water to carry the primo, the data sheet says a
Minimum of 300l and a maximum of 1000l per ha, is this different from
You?

Thanks

Alex

It can be applied by a foliar application (300L/Ha) right through to a root drench(1000L/Ha). I tend to find that the effects may not last as long via a foliar rate. I think the best results are somewhere down the middle almost via the crown (400-500L/Ha).

Hope this helps

Learning is there for every man

A quick separation test would give you the answer to that question AJ. Sometimes its good to do before you put it in the tank if your not sure.
From my experience Primo is tank mixable with alot of things.

Primo is tank mixable with almost everything from Scotts, as well as most things from Rigby Taylor, the key being MOST though, and not all products. I use it on football pitches and find it works really well with a Scotts 10.0.10 or Rigby Taylors Magnet Rapide.

hi james sorry for not getting back to u sooner....

the high n is the start of the season fert which would decrease through the season.
Primo maxx is absorbed through the plant leaf which is directed to the jibrillic acid within the plant. taking this into mind i was advised to use small water amounts and to use a finer jet on my sprayer which reduces the run off, off the leaf...

Regards
Brian

Alex,

I used to apply primo at the recommended greens rate of 300ml/ha every 3 weeks with 40l of nsure 28-0-0 and 20 kg of 13-0-45 and a little liquid iron in 500 l of water /ha.base fed with 6 month product in april and adjusted rates of tankmix up or down depending on clip and appearance. Would have liked to have applied primo at the half rate every 2 weeks as research has shown it to be more consistent at shorter intervals, didnt have the time or resources.Now working at a course where the super sprays every ten days with primo tank mix @ 100/ml ha with a cocktail of liquids and the results are very little clip and a unbelievabley dense turf.Quality Poa!!!

I found on tees you could really up the rates depending on conditions. I was spraying 800ml/ha on tees with 20 kg of prilled urea and reckon they could have handled a bit more, old tees, pure grass factories!!
