Harrogate Week News: Floratine launches anti-nematode 'turf action plan'

A "turf action plan", designed to help the grass plant win the battle against nematode attacks, was introduced at BTME by new owners of US-based Floratine, Kevin and Michael Cavanaugh.

The foliar feed package consists of Astron to promote rooting and generate energy, Floradox Pro to boost the plant's immune system and aid rooting, and ProteSyn to help photosynthesis.

Plant strength is vital now that fewer chemicals are available to fight nematodes and due to the decreasing occurrence of severe frosts, which help to drive nematodes deeper into the soil, where they cause less harm to grass.

Floratine vice-president Michael Cavanaugh said: "Our ethos is to provide all the nutrition the grass requires to perform well. We offer a range of dedicated products for different seasons of the year, such as early spring and summer, and for tournament preparation."
