An extreme winter left many with less than desirable conditions heading into the spring and led to recovery efforts, which put an early season emphasis on plant health. Continuing these recovery efforts into the growing season cannot be overstated. Weather and traffic stresses will be here soon and turf needs to be prepared. Foliar-Pak has proven cornerstone products found in many successful programs, which can help with recovery and provide the level of success every turf manager is looking for.

Turf health requires basic plant functions to be performing at an optimal level during stress and Foliar-Pak’s L-18 Activator will help do just that. The 18 L-Amino acids increase photosynthesis, carbohydrate storage, and respiration through increased stomatal function, auxin production, and increase in micronutrient uptake. Foliar-Pak’s Promote fights stress by enhancing the plant’s metabolic functions through the use of humic acids, block polymers, and seaweed extracts. Incorporating these products into any IPM program will significantly improve its effectiveness.

One of Foliar-Pak’s objectives is to continue to bring new and innovative products to the market. MKS Turbo is one of those products. Organic acids and soil penetrants protect the magnesium, sulfur and potassium from being tied up in the soil and eliminate the need for granular KMag applications, which are difficult to breakdown during the season. Combining MKS Turbo with Root Guard 1-2-1, a product that provides quicker root growth through humic acids, seaweed extracts, and viable mycorrhizae, creates a soil application that will provide another defense against summer stress. Another of Foliar-Pak’s truly unique products is Carbosential Fe, an iron product unlike others on the market. It provides residual color, with very low rates, through the use of an iron polysaccharide and L-amino acids. It can also be used as a foliar or soil product.

Foliar-Pak line does not stop there by a long shot. Ask your Advanced Turf Solutions sales representative to help you build the entire program you desire to fill all of your needs.
