Advanced Kelp Extract Formula

General Details

AQM Tougher Turf is a balanced formulation of a highly refined, enriched kelp extract and a surfactant to be used in conjunction with proven turfgrass programs. The kelp extract in AQM is produced from fresh ascophyllum nodosum and is extracted using physical cell burst technology that preserves the cytoplasm, auxins, cytokinins, nutrients, and amino acids in their natural state. The cytokinins and auxins in AQM are biologically active metabolic enhancers that initiate the formation of lateral and secondary roots causing greater root mass. This action allows an increase in the root system’s effective area of absorption allowing for better nutritional uptake. The surfactant in AQM provides for increased infiltration and more uniform distribution of water into the root zone which also aids in distributing the kelp extract evenly throughout the root zone. Research has shown that turfgrass treated with cytokinins and auxins, such as found in AQM, consistently enhanced antioxidant concentration, chlorophyll content, photosynthetic activity and conditioned the plant to improve its tolerance to environmental stresses.

Application Rates

LIQUID:

Golf, Lawns, and Sports Turf
Apply 3 ounces per 1,000 ft2 in 1 to 2 gallons of water (10 L/ha in 400 to 800 L) at 30 to 45 day intervals or as needed.
Irrigate after each application to remove the surfactant from the plant surfaces.
Inject 1 gallon per acre (10 L/ha) at 30 to 45 day intervals or as needed.

Horticulture
2 to 3 weeks after germination or transplant, apply 3 ounces per 1,000 ft2 in 1 to 2 gallons of water (10 L/ha in 400 to 800 L). Apply a follow-up application at bloom set. Irrigate after each application to remove the surfactant from the plant surfaces.

Sod Installation
Immediately following sod installation, apply 3 ounces per 1,000 ft2 in 1 gallon of water (10 L/ha in 400 L). Follow up with normal turf program. Irrigate after each application to remove the surfactant from the plant surfaces.
