According to the intensity of wear, football pitches need a consequent mechanical treatment and an adequate amount of nutrients to guarantee optimal functionality.
Wear tolerance, regeneration growth and sward density are the main goals of a proper fertilization program. Slow-release fertilizers, with a high efficiency and a long lasting effect, in combination with liquid fertilizers are the elements of a modern fertilization concept. To cope with different biotic and abiotic stress factors, turf vitality and health is also of great importance. Therefore, biostimulants and wetting agents are vital complementary components.
Because of the intensive use, sports turf requires regeneration growth and a good wear resistance. Therefore, an optimal nutrient supply is important. To guarantee continuous growth adapted to the turf needs, Floranid® Twin slow-release fertilizers with trace elements and a fine granulation (0,7-2,8 mm) are particularly suitable. Every single granule of the Floranid® Twin fertilizers contains the same concentration of nutrients. These complex granules ensure a homogeneous nutrient distribution and visual aspect. The unique combination of ISODUR® and CROTODUR® nitrogen ensures high efficiency and safety with positive impacts on photosynthesis, root development and microbial soil activity. The Floranid® Twin fertilizers are available in different nutrient formulas and also work under adverse weather conditions during early spring or late autumn applications. Liquid fertilizers and biostimulants from the Vitanica® and Basfoliar® product line complete the granules and enable the groundsman to create a differentiated fertilization concept also for the special requirements of hybrid turf systems with artificial lights.
