What approach should you take to bring back Bermudagrass?
The truth is there are many options to choose from, and Fertizona representatives have the expertise to guide turf professionals in the most-efficient direction.
“One of the main things to remember is that healthy roots equal healthy grass, which result in better top growth. This enables the turf to handle the stress of heat susceptibility and overcome insect pressure,” said Kevin Walsh, Turf Manager, Fertizona – Fennemore.
“Furst is turning into a standard additive for turf professionals, establishing root systems that increase nutrient uptake in plants, which increases overall turf health,” says Walsh. “The difference in root growth is astounding.”
Furst reduces the need for nitrogen applications and increases stress tolerance, resulting in Bermudagrass that is strong against heat stress and insects.
The starter application should be followed by UMAXX® to get your turf through the rest of the summer.
“UMAXX will continue to bring Bermudagrass back to life from its dormant state,” says Gari Scherting, Turf Manager, Fertizona – Fennemore. “And because of its extended release, with just one application you will have 14 to 16 weeks of sustained growth that will also save superintendents on labor costs.”
