Fertiliser trials results released

The first round of integrated turf management trials by Scotts has achieved an 81 per cent reduction in fusarium.

The trials, carried out in conjunction with the Sports Turf Research Institute, assessed the affect of numerous variables including slow-release fertiliser, KNO3 fertilisers, wetting agents and fungicides.

After trialling each treatment individually and in a range of combinations, the tests proved the benefits of using a combination of slow-release fertilisers in conjunction with a wetting agent and fungicide.
