Sam Green, President of AQUA-AID Solutions sits down to share a Fall 2020 message. How has Covid19 effected the golf industry, the challenges and solutions the industry has found to combat the boost in rounds many are seeing.
Vermicompost Organic Liquid Extract
From golf courses and city parks to school grounds and athletic fields, there is as broad a range of turf management practices as there are uses for the turf itself. The one element that is universally important regardless of management practices or turf use is healthy soil.
Worm Power Turf is a vermicompost extract that strengthens the physical and biological aspects of soil to improve overall soil health. Improved soil health increases vigor and strength of plants for better stress tolerance. Worm Power Turf delivers a robust and diverse microbial population which aids in enhancing soil fertility. Worm Power Turf is an effective biostimulant that accelerates root initiation, establishment, and development while encouraging nutrient uptake.
Worm Power Turf has been awarded peer-reviewed research grants from State and Federal Agricultural Agencies and this research has demonstrated Worm Power Turf produces stronger, healthier, and more vigorous plants. Worm Power Turf is produced in a tightly controlled environment from beginning to end to ensure a consistent reliable product.
• Enhances availability and uptake of plant nutrients
• Viable source of macro and micro nutrients
• Increases water holding capacity of soil
• Reduces watering frequency
• Surface runoff will not contaminate water supply

• Encourages pore development in native soils
• Money back guarantee
Worm Power Turf can be applied to all ornamental plants, trees, turf, lawns, landscape shrubs, and flowers.
Golf, Lawns, and Sports Turf
Maintenance Rate: Apply as a soil spray at 8 ounces per 1,000 ft² in 2 gallons of water (25 L/ha in 800 L) at 15 day intervals or as needed.
Thatch Reduction Rate: To aid in thatch reduction, apply as a soil spray at 16 ounces per 1,000 ft² in 2 gallons of water (50 L/ha in 800 L) at 30 day intervals.
For best results, Worm Power Turf requires season long application programs.
Apply as a foliar spray at 1 ounce per gallon (8 ml/L) weekly throughout the growing season.
Evaluation Time Frame:
University of Tennessee
Dr. Jim Brosnan, Professor, University of Tennessee and Phenotype Screening Corporation (PSC) collaborated to evaluate the effects of Worm Power® Turf on annual bluegrass (Poa annua) rooting. The collaboration provided a new and innovative way to evaluate rooting through the use of Phenotype Screening Corporations’ induced-expression phenotyping. In 2004, PSC pioneered induced-expression phenotyping, the comparative study of how agricultural products affect plant development utilizing X-ray technology. Dr. Brosnan utilizing PSC’s advanced technology has provided the turfgrass industry a precise look into Worm Power Turf’s effect on Poa annua:
- Projected Root Area
- Total Root Length
- Root Distribution by Depth
Annual bluegrass (Poa annua) plants were grown from seed in an artificial rootzone profile. A Complete Nutrient Solution* was applied to all plants throughout the entire evaluation and served as a control. Worm Power Turf was fertigated at an 8.5% solution to half of the samples. After 88 days of exposure both the control and Worm Power Turf treated plants were evaluated utilizing PSC technology.
During a few days together, preparing for the virtual education season to come, the AQUA-AID Solutions team sat down for a round table discussion talking 2020.

We talk with Chad Karr, Golf Course Superintendent at Stonehenge Golf and Country Club. Chad shares his experience the last two years utilizing a Worm Power Turf program.
See what goes into making Worm Power Turf one of the most successful products in the turfgrass industry. Consistent, verified, and research backed is what Worm Power Turf is. Value is what it brings to your agronomic program.
In 2020, Dr. Jim Brosnan, Professor, University of Tennessee and Phenotype Screening Corporation (PSC) collaborated to evaluate the effects of Worm Power Turf on annual bluegrass (Poa annua) rooting.
Since the genesis and subsequent success of Worm Power Turf many have attempted to copy the success. It's time to weed out the empty and unproven claims and cut right to the facts.
Enhancing nutrient uptake has been one of the benefits of using Worm Power Turf. Now a team lead by James White Jr out of Rutgers University, Department of Plant Biology has shown exactly how this is occurring through the Rhizophagy cycle.
