Greentec granular

Turf managers preferring a granular rather than a liquid feed for fine turf will welcome Headland Amenity's new Greentec Microtonic.

The homogeneous, fine turf fertiliser has a formulation of 3-0-6+Fe with 3.6 per cent humic acid and is designed for speedy breakdown to provide small amounts of nutrient. With 93 per cent of the nitrogen in the analysis from sulphate of ammonia, the product gives rapid results even at low soil temperatures.

Also incorporated is Naturvigor, an aerobically composted cow manure fortified by humic acid, to give the fertiliser an organic base and provide an organic nitrogen fraction to help stimulate microbial activity and encourage root development.

The potassium source is derived from Kali Vinasse, a potash rich, sugar beet pulp. It is released slowly by microbial activity and with a 1:2 N/K ratio, the resulting growth produces grass leaf and resilience to stress and disease.

Greentec Microtonic is suitable for fine turf areas, such as golf and bowling greens.
