TourTurf® GroActive® Turf is a natural adjuvant and biostimulant containing a blend of plant extracts from Quillaja saponaria (Soapbark tree) and Yucca schidigera (Mojave yucca).
The saponin and fulvic acid ingredients in the product provide the best quality surfactant, increasing the efficiency of nutrient absorption both in foliar and soil applications. Together with the biostimulant properties the product maximises turf quality, performance and turf health.
GroActive® Turf contains both hydrophilic and hydrophobic components that removes surface tension of liquids, so previously insoluble compounds can mix. The Quillaja Saponaria extract has surfactant properties, forming ‘micelles’ that change the binding characteristics of the liquids in which they are mixed.
The concentric formation of small micelles have an affinity that binds them to sterols, making it easier to enter cell walls. Similarly, the Yucca shidigera has the ability to affect cell wall penetration into plants.
Applicable to soil and foliar application.
Biostimulant properties: When mixed with other nutrients, biostimulants or chemical solutions that are less easy to apply and get into the plant, the GroActive® greatly increases uptake and efficiency of action of these formulants through co-formulation.
Also GroActive® Turf is known to increase the metabolic efficiency of the turfplant and to improve the turf plant’s immune system as GroActive® Turf also contains salicylic acid. This allows the turf plants to perform better under stress and disease conditions.
The product will allow the turf plants to thrive and flourish. GroActive® Turf will in general help you minimise fertiliser and chemical production input.

Recovery from disease, soil pests & nematode damage): 7 L /ha in 500 -1200 L water. (Repeat applications every 10 days, or ensuring 3-4 applications within 60 days) NB always ensure maximum concentration 1.5% solution in any application.
Pesticide tank mix:
All products, except products containing Calcium or Chlorides.
Apply bio-products (eg Trichoderma, mycorrhiza and beneficial insects prior to GroActive®. Apply alternately when repeated applications are necessary.
Further Application Advice:
Frequency: As required, together with foliar nutrients / pesticides. Frost free.
Any time during growing season.
Minimise agitation and use an anti-foam product in the spray tank.
Using standard nozzle and boom application.
Keep the concentrate product in a frost-free place.
