Research reveals Amino-Sorb reduces stress in turf

The amino-acid-based product Amino-Sorb has a positive effect on reducing stress in turf but also enhances growth and gives better absorption of pesticides, according to latest research.

Experiments conducted in the US, UK and Spain showed that grass plants survived three days longer without water before showing signs of stress and when watering resumed they took fewer days to recover compared to untreated plants.

Similarly, tests for heat tolerance resulted in grass plants treated with Amino-Sorb tolerating temperatures up to 36 degsC.

Speaking at last week's parks and grounds care trade show at Eirias Park, Conwy Bay, Bioiberica export manager Ignasi Pons Badrinas told visitors: "In experiments, grass plants treated with Amino-Sorb had enhanced levels of photosynthesis and better root mass. We also showed that strobylurine fungicides, such as Heritage, can be used at half rates without loss of effect."
