MatchPlay® Superior Liquid Range – Boosting Cell Strength and Defences

As a cool spring winds down, it is important to start conditioning turf to handle the rigours of summer that are sure to come. Summer stresses will be along and having structurally strong turf with an activated immune system is a cornerstone of allowing turf to adapt prior to the onset of stress. Silicon (Si) and Silica (SiO2) are relatively abundant in soil, but due to their low solubility they are not plant available. Monosilicic acid (MSA) is the highly plant available form that is readily absorbed by roots and foliage – it has may advantages in the plant –… ...Read More

MatchPlay® Superior Liquid Range – Boosting Soil Biology

As spring continues to ramp up and soil temperatures are on a steady climb it is an opportune time to consider boosting the population of beneficial microbes in the soil. Don’t underestimate the benefits that a healthy rhizosphere can mean to supporting a consistent playing surface. The rhizosphere is the “halo” immediately surrounding the roots in the soil and it is here that the highest population of microbes congregate. Building the populations in the soil have benefits around breakdown of organic matter, assistance in nutrient mineralisation and release, competition with pathogens and many more. MP Promote is a concentrated inoculum… ...Read More

Living Turf® is Now Using MLSN Guidelines to Analyse Soil Tests

For decades, the conventional guidelines for analysing soil test data has been used by the turf industry worldwide and have generally not changed too much. The common methods used in Australia have been Sustainable Level of Available Nutrition (SLAN) and Base Cation Saturation Ratio (BCSR). In 2012, turfgrass research scientists based in Thailand and the USA, Dr Micah Woods and Dr Larry Stowell, brought their skills and historical data together to question these traditional guidelines and their relevance in turf today. The result of their studies was a new set of guidelines, called the Minimum Levels for Sustainable Nutrition (MLSN).… ...Read More
