With the use of AQM® Tougher Turf, the golf course superintendent will also address the issue of water availability to the plant. AQM Tougher Turf balances the benefits of its seaweed extract component with a highly effective
Organic Acid Redistribution System
Soil Hydrating Surfactant
Other wetting agent or speciality products from around the world such as DewCure.
Moisture suppression for turf
DewCure® is a long lasting moisture control product specifically formulated to prevent the accumulation of surface moisture on turfgrass including dew, guttation and frost. Additionally, DewCure reduces the time required for leaf drying following rainfall, irrigation and light frost.
A new generation wetting agent designed to provide Turf Managers with increased flexibility when managing soil moisture levels in turf and landscape situations. QUALIBRA® is 100% wetting agent; with no water added. It is a blend of proprietary non-ionic surfactants selected to move water into the soil profile, whilst improving water retention capabilities, ensuring continuing re-wetting for improved plant health. Working in combination, QUALIBRA® can be used in either curative or preventative situations – distributing water deeper and evenly in the profile to prevent and cure dry patch concerns, whilst assisting in root and overall plant health.
Stamina Range features a specialised wetting agent for every requirement, from standard wetting agents, to penetrants, curative options, granulars, tablets for hand watering and even long term options. The Stamina Range is manufactured for Australasian conditions making it the ideal choice for turf managers all over New Zealand.
The benchmark in residual surfactant technology
STAMINA 90 is a 100% non ionic, residual surfactant formulation for long term prevention of localised dry spot. STAMINA 90 is unmatched in its residual performance capabilities in both sandy and heavier soil profiles. STAMINA 90 also has excellent warm and cool season turf safety characteristics and can be used in all forms of turf management, where residual properties are required.
A combination of three powerful soil surfactants to maximise performance in sand based profiles.
STAMINA BALANCE is a premium soil surfactant blend, specifically designed to maximise water usage and availability in sand based root zones. The key to STAMINA BALANCE'S performance characteristics is its unique combination of powerful surfactant technologies fulfilling different roles in the water management processes.
The answer to dew issues in turf management
STAMINA DEWSTAR is a concentrated, organosilicone based surfactant containing a unique blend of various nonionic polymers that are highly effective in suppressing Dew formation on turf swards. Known as a “Super Spreader”, the STAMINA DEWSTAR molecule is a highly efficient surfactant in reducing the surface tension of water droplets, significantly more so than other wetting agents.
The logical choice in penetrant surfactants
Stamina Express is a high quality thatch and soil penetrant surfactant blend, specifically designed to quickly and efficiently move water into the soil profile. Stamina Express is economical and ideal for injection into irrigation systems or application via boom sprayer for large area usage. Stamina Express as well as containing a high level of penetrant surfactant technology, also possesses a residual surfactant component, allowing for excellent rewetting and prevention of dry patch formation in the initial weeks following the application.
The broadacre soil surfactant solution
Stamina Fairway is a residual surfactant blend specifically developed to relieve and prevent problems associated with hydrophobic soils in broadacre turf applications. Stamina Fairway assists in water management by improving water penetration and retention, enhancing overall plant vigour by limiting periods of water stress. The surfactant is a 100% non-ionic surfactant formulation which possesses low burn and residual properties to help alleviate and prevent problems associated with localised dry spot (LDS) in excess of an eight week period.
The long term granular
STAMINA G is an easy to spread granular formulation of STAMINA G, providing excellent residual wetting performance and prevention of localised Dry Spot. STAMINA G is specifically for use in higher cut turf situations such as sportsfields, parks, fairways, racetracks and turf farms.
A water dispersible granular surfactant for use in greens
Stamina Greens WDG a granular residual surfactant formulation specifically developed for use in fine turf situations such as golf greens, tees and surrounds, bowling greens, tennis courts and croquet lawns. Stamina Greens WDG is unique in that the granular itself is water dispersible, hence once it has been applied to the turf surface, and irrigation undertaken, the granule will dissolve and disappear from the turf surface.
Stamina Now is a combination product delivering a powerful re-wetting agent in conjunction with supplemental amino acids that bolster the turf ability to respond and re-establish normal function. The product borrows from proven performers in the areas of soil moisture and plant health management, but now is offered in a neat rescue and revitalise package. The product requires only basic application equipment enabling mobility and ease of rapid application.
The perfect partner for soil surfactants
Stamina Relieve is a soil-amending polymer, which effects changes in the surface tension of the hygroscopic (bound) water in the soil. The ionic nature of soils, and the polarised molecular structure of water results in very strongly bonded (hygroscopic) water in the soil system. It is the strength of this soil-water adhesion which leads to soil compaction, resulting in poor water infiltration, low overall water-holding capacity, reduced soil aeration and high soil shear strength.
STAMINA RESCUE specifically designed to overcome hydrophobic soil situations. It contains two proprietary surfactant molecules which undertake the following roles;
1. High surface tension acting surfactant – Rapidly enhances soil wetting, overcoming the effects of hydrophobic soil conditions.
2. Heavier molecular weighted surfactant – Significantly enhances rewetting performance ensuring that hot spots stay wet, whilst reducing soil hydrophobicity.
Stamina Symmetry introduces a new generation of surfactant molecules specifically designed to provide adequate moisture to the plant when needed whilst maintaining high levels of soil oxygen. Stamina Symmetry is recommended for use on fine turf surfaces or where turf is subjected to the demands of high end use such as golf greens and other surfaces where firmness is desired.
