Feed and Prevent - Turf Hardener Package

Increasingly turf managers at all levels are becoming aware of the requirement to develop an holistic approach to turf management which encompasses proactive Integrated Turf Management (ITM) strategies.

Legislatively a greater emphasis is being placed upon systemic preventative fungicides, designed to control outbreaks before fungal pathogens can take hold, and consequently deposit a high concentration of spores in a localised area lying in wait for the next opportunity to proliferate. Furthermore, there is an increased requirement upon the turf manager to monitor historic data for periods of high disease pressure, as well as current and upcoming forecasts and weather patterns which are conducive to fungal turf disease.

With these principles in mind, it is being recognised that prevention is better than cure, and a key part of an integrated preventative approach is promoting good plant health via the application of nutrition which will assist the plant in maximising its own intricately evolved defences.

These mechanisms can be indirect, via the diverse collection of mutually beneficial relationships plants have evolved with microorganisms, as system termed Induce Systemic Resistance (ISR), or direct in that they involve physically promoting positive plant health, function and structure. When used in this manner, plant nutrition forms a non-pesticidal disease management strategy as part of the overall wider Integrated Turf Management approach.

To assist turf managers in achieving these aims we have formulated three packages, each designed at their core to offer turf mangers increased protection from pathogens alongside the choice of additional agronomic and presentational benefits.

Maxwell Turf Hardener

Maxwell Turf Hardener

Providing (15% CaO w/v) alongside associated micronutrients for rapid uptake and assimilation throughout the plants systems, Maxwell Turf Hardener provides the core ingredients for building plant cell walls, lading to increase thickness and greater resilience to pathogen attack.

Maxwell Bullet Phosphite

Maxwell Bullet Phosphite

The most concentrated and best value for money phosphite on the market featuring our unique in house organic chelate technology. Research has demonstrated that when applied alongside fungicide programmes, phosphite works to provide protection for new and existing growth via the induction of beneficial metabolic responses to pathogens. It is also a powerful stimulator of root growth.

Maxwell SolControl 13-0-39 +2MgO

Maxwell SolControl 13-0-39 +2MgO

The flexibility of soluble fertilisers allows turf managers to be in control of accompanying nutrition when surfaces require a feed, however the accompanying Turf Hardener and Phosphite provide the added security of associated protection.
