Farnham Golf Club sees a root mass increase of 52% in root length across all treated greens

Case Study

Maxstim Products


Maxstim Sport Turf is a complex biostimulant with a wide range of bioactive components including our unique bioflavonoids and polyphenols, creating better root development and better resilience to wear and tear.

CynosaTM contains orthosilicic acid enabling plants to assimilate silicon to strengthen plant structures and increase resistance to disease.

Core Measurement Results

Core measurements showed an overall increase of 52% in root length, which was a significantly larger development than control areas.

The benefits of an improved root mass include:

  • Increased plant health
  • Better endurance of stress and disease
  • Improved plant colour
  • Reduction in additional nitrogen applications
  • Reduced use of fungicide treatments


The combined use of Maxstim Sport Turf and Cynosa means golf courses can achieve significantly improved root length, and subsequently healthier and more resilient turf.

“Thank you for steering me towards your excellent product and yes, we
are definitely seeing some excellent results.”

– Rupert Lawrence, Head Green Keeper at Farnham Golf Club.
