Turfguard is a liquid formulation of garlic extract, kelp and aromatic aldehyde. Turfguard can be used in amenity turf, fine turf and newly sown grass leys to promote general health. Improving the general health will deter pests as well as aiding the plant if it should be attacked. Turfguard is not a pesticide however the garlic odour may deter several types of pest through creating an uninviting environment to protect itself, from pests of disease, in particular the roots.
We reccommend applying Turfguard when the plant is not showing any signs of stress. Do not apply during adverse weather or if it is showing signs of deficiency.
It promotes an envinronment around leaves and roots that is unviting to pests, which helps to prevent root damage and reduces the risk of disease. The additon of kelp rich in auxin stimulates the plant to produce new roots, which helps the plant to overcome the symptoms of soil bourne pest attack.
Use Turfgard with a suitable penetrative wetting agent such as Abzorb. Apply in a minimum of 300L of water per hectare. Use up to 1,000L of water per hectare to aid with the penetration of the soil.
