Macro-Sorb Technologies is introducing three new products at the Golf Industry Show in San Antonio. A new product designed to combat soil bicarbonate issues will also be available from its sister company SMS Additive Solutions. Part of the new DEFEND line, the products will be launched by the companies at GIS.
Macro-PHITE is a double-action plant protection phosphite fertilizer formulated to increase resistance to biotic stress caused by pathogens and abiotic stress caused by adverse climatic conditions. It is root- and shoot-absorbed, highly mobile within the turf plant and enhanced with Macro-Sorb amino acids for superior product uptake.
Macro-SI pairs high-quality soluble silicon with Macro-Sorb’s advanced amino acid technology to promote rapid nutrient uptake and utilization. The proprietary formulation in Macro-SI delivers readily available silicon activated with a complex of specific amino acids. Macro-RELIEF Salt Stress Reliever increases stress tolerance of turfgrass caused by high salinity levels in the soil and/or irrigation.
Macro-RELIEF works by providing plant available calcium along with Macro-Sorb L-amino acids to regulate osmotic potential within the plant, resulting in increased cell hydration.
SMS Bye-CARB is specifically designed to combat the challenging growing conditions caused by high levels of soil bicarbonates. Formulated with SMS technology, Bye-Carb efficiently degrades bicarbonates across a wide range of soil conditions.
“The Macro-Sorb and SMS Additive Solutions DEFEND line is designed to provide new tools to combat specific turf management challenges,” said Michael Kubinec, vice president for Macro-Sorb and SMS Additive Solutions. “These products fit seamlessly into our established Macro-Sorb and SMS management programs. Used together, they enhance and defend turf, decreasing the turfgrass plant’s vulnerability to environmental stresses and threats to plant health.”
Macro-Sorb and SMS Additive Solutions representatives will be available at booth #7062 at GIS.
