Packaged in easy-to-use 8 ounce packages, BioNutrients 8-0-9 for Fairways, Sports Turf, and Lawn Care is a 100 percent organic biostimulant and soil conditioner. Designed to add that extra “bounce” to all warm- and cool-season turfs, it is highly concentrated.
A single package will cover one acre of turf.
“It’s no-mess, no-measure, no-hassle, cost efficient solution to turf health,” explains Howard Gold, a Growth Products Technical Representative
BioNutrients’ N-P-K analysis of 8-0-9 is surprisingly high for a 100% organic product. But what’s most exciting about BioNutrients is its ability to dramatically improve soils – and ultimately turf – by activating microbial activity.
The secret lies in BioNutrients’ rich organic base. It contains three species of rhizosphere bacillus (B. subtilis, B. megaterium and B. licheniformis), which together produce four every effective enzymes that operate at a very wide temperature range (38 to 130 degrees Fahrenheit).
BioNutrients also includes wild cultures of yeast and all the “extras” that allow the beneficial microbes to successfully colonize soil and enhance root growth.
BioNutrients’ natural wetting agent, which is derived from Yucca, draws the product into even the most difficult soils. Once in the soil, its L-amino acids, humic acids, kelp extracts, and other carbon-rich molecules sustain microbial activity.
“I think of it like a flu shot for turf,” Gold says. “It puts billions of advantageous bacteria in the soil, and this improves turf health, increases root length, neutralizes soil salts, improves turf color, and makes turf better able to withstand various environmental and disease stresses such as wilt and summer stress.”
BioNutrients dissolves quickly in water, and can be tank-mixed with most pesticides, fertilizers and micronutrients. For regular maintenance of fairways and other sport and lawn turfs, it should be applied monthly throughout the growing season. Sprays of BioNutrients are also recommended for overseeded, hydroseeded, or newly seeded sods.
Like all of Growth Products’ environmentally friendly products, BioNutrients is safe and easy to apply. It has a near-neutral pH and has no special storage requirements. Because it is so highly concentrated, it is non-bulky and easy to handle.
