Terreplex unlocks bound nutrients

Terreplex® is a unique organic acid, derived from lignin with a pH of 2.5 but completely non corrosive and will not burn. Terreplex performs 2 key functions to benefit turf health: 1.

Terreplex® provides the opportunity for free calcium to then move onto exchange sites and help with long term soil structure and air flow. 2. Terreplex®, due to its unique organic base, actually… ...Read More
