Baileys ENERGY™ Turf is a fully granulated, organic based fertiliser for all turf applications. It has been specifically developed for nutrient poor, sandy soils common to Australia. ENERGY™ Turf combines a high analysis of essential nutrients, trace elements, organics and soil amendments all in the one granule. This eliminates the need for several products and encourages strong turf growth, plant resilience, disease resistance and long lasting colour. The uniform granule size and hardness ensures easy application and even coverage.
The addition of Zeolite and Humates improve soil structure, water retention and nutrient efficiency.
HUMATES IN FERTILISER
Humates act as natural soil wetters, aiding moisture retention and improving soil structure. This encourage better plant response in poor growing conditions. Humates improve plant nutrient uptake by 40%, enhancing cell division and elongation, root penetration and oxygen intake. This in turn improves fertiliser efficiency. Other advantages include:
- Neutralises problems with pH extremes.
- Reduces lockup rate of phosphate sources.
- Stabilises urea.
- Improves chelating and buffering of sodium.
- Increases beneficial fungi.
- Improves nitrogen efficiency.
- Stabilises most soluble fertilisers.
- Supplies carbon, minimising carbon stripped from the soil.
- Increase microbial activity and seed germination.
ZEOLITE IN FERTILISER
Zeolite also builds up soils , increases nutrient efficiency and reduces leaching. It is negatively charged ( like organic matter ) attracting positively charged ions like calcium and ammonium. This making them available for plant uptake. With a very high cation exchange capacity, zeolite increases the ability to hold and release nutrients. A large internal surface area and porosity enables greater infiltration and retention within the soil, increasing CEC and aeration. Zeolite treatment is also more permanent. It does not breakdown and performs as a soil recovery product, building up over time with the application of fertilisers. Zeolite naturally extracts phosphorus that has been locked up in the soil, enabling phosphorus uptake. This minimises leaching into our waterways, a common problem with sandy soils.
