Optimizer Green Shade is a green pigment spray additive and the latest addition to the line of turf and ornamental products offered by Advanced Turf Solutions, a distributor of United Turf Alliance products. Optimizer Green Shade enhances turf quality and appearance, while blending color variations caused by stress, phytotoxicity and cultivar inconsistency. It also improves application accuracy by serving as a spray pattern indicator.

Optimizer Green Shade can be used on golf courses, athletic fields and other maintained areas where turf color, quality and spray accuracy are important. It protects turf from the negative impact of UV sunlight and is tank mix compatible with most fertilizers, herbicides, fungicides, wetting agents and plant growth regulators. It may be used as a recurrent component of a spray program and to provide green color to dormant turfgrass.

“Research supports the protective capabilities of pigment products applied regularly to

turfgrass,” United Turf Alliance President Tim Zech said. “Optimizer Green Shade gives our customers an additional line of defense against turfgrass stress factors.”
