TURF PROBLEMS

There are many reasons for unhealthy grass. Highly concentrated TurfSolv® products alleviate, restore and help the recovery from damage. We have identified the four most common causes.

Recover-Restore-Revitalise

TURF PROBLEM 1

Insect larvae, commonly Leather Jackets (Crane Fly larvae) and Chafer Grubs (Chafer Beetle larvae).

The two most troublesome insect larvae on grass are Leather Jackets (Crane Fly larvae) and Chafer Grubs (Chafer Beetle larvae), which hatch in the soil and feed on grass roots. Severe damage can occur when birds and animals rip up the grass looking for grubs to feed on. Other insect larvae are Frit Fly and St Mark’s Fly.

SOLUTION

During autumn and winter apply TurfSolv® at 2ml in 100ml water per m2 and repeat after 3-5 days. For best treatment apply TurfSolv® at 2ml in 100ml water per m2 every 3-4 weeks. If the larvae occur during spring and summer apply TurfSolv® every 3-4 weeks at 2ml in 100ml water per m2. This promotes a healthy and vigorous grass plant that recovers quickly from insect larvae damage.

TURF PROBLEM 2

Disease – grass diseases are caused mainly by fungal pathogens and can occur all year round.

Grass diseases in the UK are caused mainly by fungal pathogens and can occur all year round. Common summer diseases include Anthracnose and Red Thread, which can be an indication of low nutrients in the soil. Fusarium Patch is a common disease of highly maintained grass surfaces in the autumn and winter when moisture sits on the leaf for longer.

SOLUTION

Apply TurfSolv® every 3-4 weeks at 1ml in 100ml water per m2 from March to end September. This treatment optimises soil nutrient availability and strengthens the plant, helping it to resist fungal infection and to recover quickly after damage. During autumn and winter apply TurfSolv® every 3-4 weeks at 2ml in 100ml water per m2 to maintain a healthy soil and plant.

TURF PROBLEM 3

Plant parasitic nematodes infect grass roots and restrict the uptake of nutrients and water.

There are many beneficial species of nematodes in a healthy soil, e.g. by making nutrients available to the grass. Plant parasitic nematodes, however, during the summer months penetrate grass roots and weaken the grass by feeding on nutrients the plant relies on for healthy growth. The weak grass is susceptible to secondary problems such as disease and slow recovery from wear.

SOLUTION

During early summer apply TurfSolv® at 1ml in 100ml water per m2 and repeat 3-5 days later. Follow up by applying TurfSolv® at 1ml in 100ml water per m2 every 3-4 weeks during the rest of the summer. This encourages the growth of beneficial soil microorganisms that provide a natural control of parasitic nematodes, and also massively strengthens the plant.

TURF PROBLEM 4

Fairy Rings – there are three types of Fairy Ring, all caused by fungi.

There are three types of Fairy Ring, all caused by fungi. A ring of dark green grass caused by organic matter being broken down and releasing nutrients, a ring of mushrooms from organic matter being broken down, and a ring of bare soil caused by a fungus that coats soil particles in a water-resistant film and the grass dies from drought.

SOLUTION

Spike holes with a garden fork to a depth of 100mm into the ring and flood with a 1:50 (TurfSolv:water) solution of TurfSolv®. Repeat every two weeks until the ring has disappeared and/or normal grass growth recovers. Bare rings will require some grass seed for full recovery of damaged areas.


 

How to Use

A new approach to grass care and health based on science. Non toxic and safe for children and pets. Best used for high stress periods such as heat, cold, heavy wear and pest and disease attacks.

Initial use:
 Dilute 2ml of TurfSolv® into 100ml of water per 1m2 of lawn – Apply twice 3-5 days apart. 

e.g. For a 125m2 lawn use 250ml TurfSolv® in 12.5 litres of water. Repeat after 3-5 days.

Maintenance: Dilute 2ml of TurfSolv® in 100ml of water per sqm every 3 – 4 weeks.

*500ml of TurfSolv® is sufficient to treat 125m2 lawn TWICE*.

Regular use of TurfSolv® throughout the year is key to optimum turf grass health and high quality playing surfaces.
