New formula combats drought damage
By Carol Dutton
"Last summer's prolonged high temperatures followed by an unusually dry September and October has meant that damaged turf has been deprived of an autumn recovery," says Headland's Andy Russell. "As a result, turf managers face more renovation this spring, (as they over-seed bare patches present during the winter) than for many years."
The new Xtend 15+20+10, with added magnesium, is recommended for use on golf tees, approaches, surrounds and fairways, as well as winter sports pitches, as an important aid to early spring seed germination. The product is also valuable in the establishment of trees, shrub beds and municipal plantings.
Available in 25Kg bags, Headland recommends an application rate of 20 to 30gs per sq metre when used as a pre-seeding fertiliser on sports turf, and 30gs per sq metre when applied to new plantings.For further information on Xtend 15+20+10, visit stand C26, or call the company on Tel: 01223 597834.
