Optimising the Rootzone Environment

Step 1 for BioNutrition

The RZ Analysis supplies the information to ammend the rootzone to provide the grass plant with the best conditions for growth and vigour that help the turfgrass manager prepare high quality playing surfaces.

We have three options for ammending rootzones:

Diversity-G - A granular biological inoculant containing a synergistic blend of mycorrhizae and other beneficial fungi, bacterial species and microbe feedstock. Apply once or twice per year at 40-80 kg/ha for all the microbes your turf will need through the year. Read more...

BioLink - A blend of seaweed meal, zeolite and Diversity-G. Apply at 500-1000 kg/ha as an ammendment during construction of new surfaces, or as a topdressing on established turfgrass surfaces. Read more...

Compost tea - The owner of South West Agronomy has promoted the use of compost tea on turfgrass surfaces for many years. We have the experience and expertise to help you build a cost-effective compost tea brewer, and offer two solutions for clients who wish to apply beneficial microbes to turfgrass surfaces:

Beneficial microbes at work in a compost tea sample

  1. supply a soluble powder called Diversity-SP for dissolving into a spray tank or multiply up in a compost tea brewer,

  2. help you identify a suitable source of microbes from your own site that costs you nothing.
