How Turffix® Works

Turffix® has a nutrient analysis of: Nitrogen: 6%; Phosphorous: 2%; Potassium: 1.25%; Sulphur : 0.25%; and micro-nutrients, including calcium, copper, iron, magnesium, manganese, and zinc in a plant available form. Turffix® bolsters the soil micro-organism populations, and begins to release nutrients into useable forms of a premium balanced lawn nutrient package, within about one month of it being applied and watered.

There is abundant nutrient in this package for the entire season of vigorous growth, depending on growing conditions and lawn density. Most lawn fertilizers require several applications (and purchases) per season, to yield results. A year's supply of the synthetic fertilizer would burn your lawn if you applied it in one application. But Turffix® needs to be applied only once per calendar year; saving time and moneyā€¯ .

So why not cut back the rate?

The product will deliver the right level of nutrients over the full season. Less volume of Turffix® will deliver the same nutrient package, but in smaller quantities over that growing season– a much improved soil health, yet not top results. Recommended rates will result in a steady supply of nutrients of sufficient quantity every day to take your lawn to the next level of health. A full application of Turffix® will establish an abundantly supplied bank of nutrients, producing the right conditions for robust soil health.

What if your area experiences a drought?

The nutrients are released under the same conditions in which your lawn needs them – moist soil and sun. Under drought conditions, defense mechanisms of the grass naturally slow down nutrient uptake and growth. Similarly, the release mechanisms of Turffix®, slow down and conserve nutrients until moisture becomes available.

Synthetic fertilizer can burn

Synthetic fertilizers frequently can burn a crop under similar conditions. As the fertilizer salts of synthetic fertilizer dissolve in the available water, some of the nutrient leeches away into the sub-soil and is often lost to you, but added to your biosphere as pollutant. Some of the nitrate salt stays in concentrated pockets. In drought conditions, an imbalance frequently develops and osmotic pressure causes water to move from the plant root to the fertilizer; damaging the plants metabolic processes. A natural fertilizer can burn a plant if the application rates are unreasonably high, but because the natural fertilizer releases nutrients at a steady, slower pace (matched to the growing conditions and the grass needs), the risk of burn is radically reduced.
