Product Trials – Amino Turf

Evaluation of AminoTurf on High Stress Turfgrass

  • Location: Irish Sportsturf Institute (ISTI), Poaceae Farm, Blessington, Co. Wicklow, Ireland.
  • Date: from June 24th 2017 to Dec 30th 2017.
  • Turfgrass canopy: predominantly (>85%) annual meadowgrass (Poa annua) with traces of browntop bentgrass (Agrostis capillaris) and slender creeping red fescue (Festuca rubra literalis).
  • Protection: no pesticides of any type were applied during the trial.
  • Irrigation: it was applied based on wilt assessments – at no stage during the trial was supplementary irrigation required.
  • Equipment: treatments were made using a CO2 backpack sprayer (Bellspray R&D JR-203S, R&D Sprayers, Opelusa, LA)

Disease Cover

The applications of Aminoturf did not completely prevent the development of Microdochium nivale but did reduce it significantly in comparison to the untreated controls.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Quality

There was a significant difference between the control and the highest rate of amino.
The two lower rates of Aminoturf were not significantly different from either the check plot of the highest rate

Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI) (0-0,8)

Treatment 4 rated significantly higher than the control.  The two lower rates of Aminoturf didn´t show significant improvement

Turf Color

Treatment 2 and 4 resulted in significant differences compared to the control.  Treatment 3 did not show significant improvement.

CONCLUSIONS

  • Aminoturf´s invigorating and stimulating effect allows the grass to save energy during critical stages of growth and improves its recovery from abiotic stress due to climatic conditions.
  • Best responses for all the parameters where achieved with the higher rate of 20 l/ha. The lower rates presents better results than the control, but not always significant.
  • During October and November, the cooling impacts negatively on all parameters, with Aminoturf showing a great difference in performance.
  • Great results with cover disease (-57%), color (+0,5) and quality (+0,5).
