Golf and sports turf have special requirements for care and maintenance. Since these are areas in public spaces, the use of chemical pesticides is severely restricted. Starch-based biopolymers offer the opportunity of protecting heavily used lawns and turf and keeping them healthy in an environmentally friendly and efficient manner. We recommend EROSIONCONTROL EC-1000 for applications in the areas of leisure and sports turfs.
The of plant protection products used in lawn and turf care are applied together with EROSIONCONTROL EC-1000. After drying, a starch film forms on the ground and the grass surface, in which the active ingredients are “protected”. When moisture is present, the starch film absorbs it and forms a gel. The active ingredients are “activated” and released. Thereby, the gel spreads further on the leaf surface or in the soil. The activity of beneficial soil organisms is also increased as they metabolize the starch present in EROSIONCONTROLEC-1000.
The included(or added) humic acids help to improve the soil structure. They support the absorption of minerals by binding insoluble metal ions, oxides and hydroxides and slowly and continuously releasing them to the plants when needed.
EROSIONCONTROL is applied to golf courses and sports turf as an adhesive together with fertilizers. At heavy rainfall or frequent watering, Erosioncontrol EC-1000 prevents run off and stores the fertilizer without creating waterlogging.
EROSIONCONTROL dries after the application. When dew is formed, Erosioncontrol absorbs the dew and forms a gel which is distributed further on the plant. The lawn stays dry and the playability of the turf is not affected.
EROSIONCONTROL strengthens and prolongs the effect of applied plant protection products At the same time, the stress caused by the application of fungicides or herbicides to the grass plants is reduced.
When biostimulants are applied together with EROSIONCONTROL, they are protected from being washed away by heavy rain. In addition, and a long-term biostimulant effect is achieved through the natural slow-release effect of Erosioncontrol.
The goal of using EROSIONCONTROL when treating “dry spots” is to activate soil life. The starch contained in Erosioncontrol serves as food for the microorganisms in the soil and is metabolized by them. Microorganisms multiply more and can thus convert dead plant parts better. The formation of “black layers” is reduced.
