Turf Starter is a super concentration of inputs including Silica, Kelp, Potash, humates, natural growth hormones and trace elements to give Turf the best possible nutrition in the critical early stages of establishment.
Silica is present in plants in amounts equivalent to, or higher than, elements like Calcium, Magnesium or Phosphorus. Studies show that plants deprived of Silica are structurally weaker, more prone to pest and disease attack, and are more susceptible to heavy metal and salt toxicities among other things. Silica helps prevent transplant stress and is required in constant supply for strong healthy turf.
Added kelp and potash are essential for root and shoot development during the early stages of transplant to promote a strong healthy root system as fast as possible.
Humates like humic and fulvic acid retain water, buffer salts and toxins and feed microbes – perfect turf development conditions. Natural growth stimulants like triacontanol complete this multi functional product that can also be used on an ongoing basis.
