TourTurf® Myco Turf Activator helps to renew or improve the natural biology in the soil, as it increases the number of beneficial mycorrhiza fungi and bacteria in the turf rooting zone.
The product improves the turf’s ability to better defend itself against pathogenic microorganisms that are responsible for poor growth or diseases. If soil life is abundant then the plant has more biological tools available to protect itself against not only diseases, but also degradation from other environmental stresses.
TourTurf® Myco Turf Activator contains a unique blend of organic nutrients, seaweed extracts, essential endomycorrhiza fungi and bacteria consortia of Bacillus spp. and Azospirillium spp. The product is therefore an environmentally friendly and sustainable product, with all ingredients approved and registered for organic farming.
Approximately 85% of all plants benefit from the use of arbuscular (endo-) mycorrhiza fungi, including all the commonly used turf species, such as the Bent and Fescue turf species.
Turf plants do not benefit from ectomycorrhiza fungi.
In extensive scientific greenhouse trials carried out at AFBI, the Agri-Food & Biosciences Institute in Belfast we have been able to show, how we can use the material to effectively reduce Dollar spot and Fusarium patch on turf grass plants. We expect also good prevention on Antrachnose.
From the trial work at AFBI we know that even in a high disease pressure situation it is possible to minimize and reduce disease with up to 60 % compared to untreated plants.
Renovation of turf areas: 3-5 kg/100 m2. New seeding: 5 kg/100 m2.
1 bag will treat up to 600 m2
The product is recommended for turf use only. Incorporate the product into the top soil before seeding, overseeeding or installing new turf rolls. For use on existing turf areas, apply at time of aeration brushing the material in to achieve root contact.
