Hosts of the 2018 Ryder Cup

After seeing the benefits of using Maxstim at a number of prestigious golf venues in Europe, Alejandro Reyes wanted to evaluate the effect of Maxstim at Le Golf National, the 2018 hosts of the European Ryder Cup. The primary aim was to evaluate how Maxstim could influence root mass and depth and initiate new root growth, even though the trial was carried out during winter.

After just 9 weeks

  • Average root increase throughout the whole course was 36%
  • Increase in chlorophyll production
  • Overall improvement to plant health
  • Resistance to disease – impressive reduction of dry patch

“Maxstim took 60 core samples throughout all our greens both before Maxstim was applied and afterwards. This gave me a total understanding of the impact of Maxstim upon our root system. I did not expect to see an overall increase of 36% in depth and at this time of year. I am very, very impressed with Maxstim and will continue using it.”
