It Was A Wicked Hot Summer!
Oct 20, 2021
It has been another summer of wicked weather in much of the country, particularly the Mid-West, where numerous records for high temperatures (both day and night) were set. Such conditions have plagued the same region for three summers in a row, although two years ago, heavy rains and flooding also added to the misery. In any event, prolonged tropical weather in the cool humid region of the country has not been favorable for cool season grasses to flourish.

As Seen in Golf Course Industry December 2011
Biostimulants are well-regarded for dealing with summer stress. Dr. Tom Watschke, formerly of Penn State, discusses how they help during the season’s wind-down.
Do biostimulants do anything differently in fall than during other times of the year?

FLORATINE FIELD NOTES: The Importance of Manganese
Oct 12, 2016
"The most common turf response to inadequate Mn is a markedly reduced growth rate of both shoots and roots....
Increased disease incidence is another symptom of Mn deficiency. Because Mn plays many critical roles in the biosynthesis of phenolics and lignin, grasses deficient in Mn are unable to respond to pathogen attack by producing phytoalexins that would inhibit spore germination and block fungal invasion"
Floratine Tops University Trials - Aerification
Aug 29, 2016
"Overall, the Floratine program provided the best turfgrass color and quality, plus the fastest recovery following a coring event.” – Erik H. Ervin, Ph.D., Virginia Tech
Virginia Tech and Purdue University examined pre-stress conditioning
for core aerification recovery.
Both Studies Concluded That
- Quickest Recovery
- Best Visual Appearance
- Superior Color Ratings
Floratine Scored Highest In:
- Digital Recovery Analysis
- Visual Recovery
- Quantitative Canopy Color
- Visual Quality
