- Helps promote establishment of fescue, bent and rye grasses
- Creates conditions that improve root mass and nutrient uptake
- Increases plant tolerance to drought and stress conditions
- Accelerates recovery from Fairy Rings
- Faster grow-in and establishment of new grass seeds
- Boosts the natural soil food web essential for healthy soil
- Healthy grass growing in a microbially active root zone is less susceptible to and recovers faster from disease
Boost the effect of your fertilisers with FUNGIBOOSTER; a special blend of beneficial soil fungi.
MORE EFFICIENT USE OF FERTILISERS FungiBooster is for use with inorganic fertilisers and chemically managed soil to develop the biological activity of the soil, improve soil quality, and help you develop healthy fine grasses with more efficient use of fertiliser.
The unique blend includes a range of soil fungi essential for thatch recycling, grass root growth, and stress recovery. Increased microbial activity, will ensure efficient utilisation of available nutrient to reduce the total N and P required, complementing your cultural control of many turf grass diseases.
IMPROVE FINE GRASSES Recent research suggests that fine grasses grow best in soils with high fungal populations which degrade thatch and convert it to humus and humic acids, creating a suitable environment for natural fungal development.
BETTER DISEASE MANAGEMENT Healthy grass making efficient use of nutrients can fight off diseases more effectively. In addition, a microbially active rootzone will use surplus nutrient for plant and beneficial microbial growth, degrading the soft thatch and surplus fertiliser that, under the right conditions, can become a food source for nutrient-rich diseases. FungiBooster is ideal for establishing healthy fungal populations on greens that have previously been subjected to routine fungicide use.
APPLICATION Mix 1L of FungiBooster with 200-300 litres of water per 5,000m2. Keep agitated when spraying. FungiBooster may be tank mixed with liquid seaweed, humic acids and HydroAid wetting agent.
Do not mix with pesticides and inorganic fertiliser.
Do not apply within 1 week of fungicide application.
TIMING When using standard inorganic fertilisers, apply monthly during the growing season, with special emphasis on the spring and autumn peaks in soil and growth activity. Do not apply within two weeks of a fungicide application
SPOT TREATMENT FungiBooster gives good results when used as a spot treatment where grass is obviously lacking in beneficial microbial activity as evidenced by; fairy rings, fungal dry patch, disease, poor germination and poor root and shoot development.
