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® dissolves bicarbonates, frees up calcium, magnesium and potassium, and aids removal of unwanted sodium. Therefore an application of Terreplex® before renovation releases nutrients bound up over summer and ensures the turf has fully available access to these key nutrients. 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 increases microbial activity around roots.  After renovation as the turf lays down new roots the Terreplex action stimulates microbes to develop around roots. See the picture below on trials results showing binding by growth promoting Rhizobacteria.
