Maxstim delivers improved results for Turf Growers

Insight

The differences and improvements seen when using Maxstim biostimulants?

Our six application process provided the following great results:

After Sowing

APPLICATION 1

Maxstim Agriculture+ = 10L/Ha
Maxstim CynosaTM =2L/Ha

  • There was a marked improvement in germination providing a homogenous establishment of the plants
  • The crops were emerging faster
  • The plants had a far greater root mass, providing a clear increase in fibrous roots for the plant to use
  • Leaf numbers from initial first leaf emergence were faster to appear and therefore the plant had both more roots and leaves in a shorter time helping advance the physical structure.

2-3 True Leaves

APPLICATION 2

Maxstim Agriculture+ = 10L/Ha
Maxstim CynosaTM =2L/Ha

  • Further increases in root density and leaf numbers
  • The plants were able to maintain growth and development at a faster rate
  • The plant leaf structure was more robust, providing better opportunity for photosynthesis to take place
  • The plants started to tiller faster, providing a greater crop density

Full Emergence

APPLICATION 3

Maxstim Agriculture+ = 10L/Ha
Maxstim CynosaTM =2L/Ha

  • Better utilisation of fertiliser inputs. Reduced amounts provided frequently in combination with the Maxstim gave a faster and improved use of the inputs to provide better plant growth
  • Improved tillering and root development
  • Crop was now providing full soil cover, the turf sward was well established
  • Leaf number and leaf area production was increasing considerably
  • There were no abiotic stress pressures seen in the crops

Tillering 3mths After Sowing

APPLICATION 4

Maxstim Agriculture+ = 10L/Ha

  • A continuation for all the attributes for the third application
  • The crop was now providing a strong sward
  • Root density and strength was above average for the age of the crop
  • The crop provided a green vibrant appearance with no abiotic or biotic stresses visible

3-4 mths After Emergence

APPLICATION 5

MaxstimCynosaTM =1L/Ha

  • Cynosa was applied to maintain growth and provide an increase in the utilisation of the liquid feeds and trace elements
  • The plants remained green and vibrant with better leaf structure and rigidity

Approaching Harvest

APPLICATION 6

MaxstimCynosaTM =1L/Ha

  • Cynosa was applied a second time to further maintain growth and provide an increase in the utilisation of the liquid feeds and trace elements
  • The plants remained green and vibrant with better leaf structure and rigidity

Harvest achieved in 8 months

Advantages observed growing turf using Maxstim:
  • Observable improvement in germination and faster emerging crops

  • Greater root density and improved turf sod strength

  • Robust leaf structure with vibrant green appearance and no signs of abiotic or biotic stress

  • Better utilisation of nitrogen fertiliser inputs leading to a 20% reduction in use

  • Turf was grown to a harvestable condition in 8 mths enabling the production of a 2nd crop of turf

With the increasing costs of inputs and production, we would love to show you how you can increase your profits with the use of Maxstim biostimulants.
