There are many types of fertilisers available to the turf professional:

At the forefront of technology, Multigreen’s range of resin coated fertilisers is designed for use on all areas of amenity turf:

  • Fine Turf
  • Golf and bowling greens
  • Coarser mown turf (such as tees, fairways, pitches and cricket outfields)

Multigreen fertilisers feature a resin coating which has distinct qualities:

It allows moisture in shortly after application and nutrient out once soil temperature rises above  6°C in line with the  requirements of the grass plant.

The thickness of the coating determines the longevity of the application, with products designed  for 5-6 month and  6-7 month release.

These products are available as a Spring/ Summer range and as a Winter/Autumn Range.

How does it work

After application, the granule takes up moisture over a peroid of 7 – 10 days. A small portion of the nitrogen is uncoated for initial release.

Nutrients are released as soon as the soil temperature rises above 6 °C

Release carries on through the growing season according to the Soil temperature, If it drops so does the release rate.

After a minimum of 5 – 7 months , the nutrients are totally released and the granule degrades.

3 main aspects to conventional fertilisers:

This term refers to the more traditional chemical fertilisers which release nutrient fairly quickly, though there would be variations depending on soil temperature with nitrate and ammoniacal forms of nitrogen giving better response at lower soil temperatures than urea.

They are available as blends (where straight forms of various nutrients are mixed in a bag) or as homogenous granules (all the nutrients are contained in each and every granule) which provides a more even and consistent turf.

Granule size and ease of breakdown are important considerations as well as risk of scorch when choosing a conventional fertiliser.

These are available in 2 forms and are available to the plant by both foliar and root uptake:

  • Immediately available forms
  • Slow Release liquids
  • Immediately available forms, are used in the spring more often and are useful for applying small quantities of nutrients in an even manner without the speckling which could be a problem with granular fertilisers at low rates.
  • Slow release liquids have a low scorch risk and are very safe for summer use

In calculating nutrient input from liquid fertilisers it is important to know the specific gravity of the product in question……..All liquids are not the same, don’t just go by the analysis on the drum!
