SB Rootzone Treatments

BioSulphur

Most rootzones on golf courses and sand-based sports pitches are overloaded with a combination of harmful fertilisers and pesticide residues. Synthetic compounds, e.g. EDTA used as a chelating agent, degrade very slowly or not at all and inhibit healthy microbial activity and root respiration that support the grass plant. Soil Biology treatments rehabilitate damaged rootzone environments and provide the foundation for healthy and robust turfgrass surfaces. There are three parts to rehabilitating your rootzone:

1. Carry out an SB NUTRIENT ANALYSIS to identify the requirements for treatments – don’t guess!

2. SOIL WASH the rootzone with SB PanBreaker and SB BioSulphur to clear out pesticide and fertiliser residues that create an unbalanced and potentially toxic environment for soil microbes and turfgrass roots.

3. REHABILITATE the rootzone environment with a diverse population of microbes and balanced nutrient content that create the ideal conditions for turfgrass health and vigour.

SB BioSulphur  Source of Sulphur, Calcium & Nitrogen in a bioactive formulation for optimum effectiveness. Aids soil flocculation & neutralizes soil pH.

Apply at 20 L/ha as a nutrient, and 40 L/Ha as a soil wash with PanBreaker

PanBreaker

SB PanBreaker Highly concentrated anionic wetting agent. Breaks up hard pans, improving soil structure and water infiltration and percolation. Use a tank mix with BioSulphur as a soil wash to clear out excess fertiliser salts and pesticide residues. 

Apply at 0.9 L/ha as a penetrant wetter, and at 1.2 L/Ha as a soil wash with BioSulphur

SB NutriZorb

SB NutriZorb Zeolite A natural, hydrated Phillipsite-Chabazite mineral of volcanic origin, supplied in three grades to suit the application. Supports soil biology by providing a “protective matrix” and a source of nutrients, firms up soft surfaces and slowly releases nutrients to suit turf growth. Does not break down as easily as clinoptolite zeolite. 

Apply at 200-500g/m2

Most rootzones on golf courses and sand-based sports pitches are overloaded with a combination of harmful fertilisers and pesticide residues. Synthetic compounds, e.g. surfactants and chelating agents such as EDTA, degrade very slowly or not at all and inhibit healthy microbial activity and root respiration that support the grass plant. Soil Biology treatments rehabilitate damaged rootzone environments and provide the foundation for healthy and robust turfgrass surfaces.

SB Soil Analysis

The SB Nutrient Analysis provides a wealth of information to help the turf manager decide the correct Nutrition Programme. Fertiliser Programmes are often about maximising sales. The SB Nutrient Analysis is about meeting the needs of the grass plant and rootzone environment for optimum turfgrass surfaces.
