A biostimulant with a unique biological composition
TourTurf® Biological Turf Stimulator (BTS) + A Factor
Multifunctional biostimulant – 100% plant based
100% biological plant–based biostimulant.
Approved for organic farming
TourTurf® Biological Turf Stimulator (BTS) + A Factor is a unique biostimulant with very specific, high quality biological ingredients, comprising; seaweed extracts (Ascophyllum nodosum), 17 different plant–based amino acids, optimised levels of beneficial microorganisms, 7 types of carbohydrates and a natural bioactive wetting agent, based on saponin (Camellia sinensis extract).
Additionally, the product contains 4 strains of microorganisms (Bacillus Spp.) to aid plant strength, as well as plant hormones and betaines, extracted from seaweed, for better plant growth.
TourTurf® has formulated this full spectrum biostimulant to keep the turfgrass plant in the best of health, all year round, in any climate zone. The product is an ideal solution for turfgrass managers who are aiming to use as little fungicide as possible, whilst still maintaining top quality playing surfaces.
The BTS biostimulant is designed to improve plant establishment in all types of turfgrass through enhanced rooting and the subsequent healthier growth. With regular use, the product’s components will dominate the turfgrass rhizosphere, resulting in the plant attaining better defence mechanisms against pathogens, again making it healthier.
University research from the UK confirms the documented effect as a robust preventative treatment for 2 different strains of Rhizoctonia solani. The Bacillus Spp. microorganisms contained in the formulation, have also been shown to have a preventative effect on Fusarium patch and Dollar spot in most usual disease pressure situations.
TourTurf® Biological Turf Stimulator has a content of 4.7% patented plant based L-amino acids (17 different) which helps prevent plant stress and drought stress:
Alanine (0.31%), Arginine (0.17%), Asparagic acid (0.33%), Cysteine (0.05%), Glutamine (1.20%), Glycine (0.13%), Histidine 0.09%), Isoleucine (0.19%), Leucine (0.6%), Lysine (0.12%), Methionine (0.08%), Phenylalanine (0.31%), Prolin (0.34%), Serine (0.22%), Threonin (0.15%), Tyrosine (0.2%), Valin (0.21%)
Benefits of the microorganisms:
Strong facilitator of mineral uptake from soil to plant, through enhancement of plant hormone production.
Converter of organic matter from thatch into usable plant nutrient, boosting plant strength and vitality.
The microbe that contributes to a plant’s ability to resist disease, also assisting in plant water relations.
Greatly assists plants to combat the developments of Rhizoctonia and Fusarium spores in the rhizosphere.
Biological Turf Stimulator (BTS) can be used year round in frost free conditions at 2-4 week intervals.
20 litres of concentrate is mixed with 500-700 litres of water per ha.
May be mixed with other products or alone. Does not need to be watered in after application.
