OxyTurf is environmentally friendly and completely biodegradable. It is highly effective in activating positive digestive organisms and enzymes in the soil profile, improving the decomposition of organic matter and thatch, increasing the dissolved oxygen in the soil which, in combination with activated microbes and aerobic enzymes, eliminates the black layer. This action allows thatch and organic matter to decompose and for nutrients, fertilizers and water to penetrate the soil profile and feed the entire root system. In turn, these conditions will increase the length and mass of the root.
The increase in the root system will result in greater absorption of water and nutrients in the entire profile, giving rise to a stronger grass with greater resistance to stress and disease conditions. In addition to a healthier lawn, they will also get a firm grip on the field that players appreciate so much.
OxyTurf acts on the most relevant problems affecting a golf course such as:
• Black layer and anaerobic conditions,
• Thatch accumulation,
• Growth of algae / moss,
• Lack of percolation,
• Slow root growth,
• Accumulated organic matter,
• Turf stress (increases recovery).
The results from OxyTurf optimally preserve the microbiological life in the soil profile and additionally enhance soil conditioning programs that might be in progress.
OxyTurf is a European certified product to a level of excellence encouraged for use in biological systems and farming. Our World accredited certification bodies are KIWA / Sativa and Organic Farmers and Growers (OF&G). OxyTurf was assessed at REACH level, having been exempted at the level of Annex V of this legislation. The toxicology tests carried out with Eurofins (germination and bioluminescence), a world leader in analyses of this calibre, prove the absence of any type of toxicity and allow for 100% germination of sensitive flora.
In Portugal, we have already conducted highly successful trials at Oitavos Dunes, Belas Golf Course and Ribagolfe. The trials consisted of three applications over three months, in some holes and training zones defined by the greenkeepers. At the end of the third month, the results achieved their objectives with a very visible improvement in the reduction of the black layer, thatch, decompression of the profile and root growth. In Germany we have equal success with trials on Igling Golf Course and a hybrid turf football club. In the Netherlands we are running concurrently three Golf Course trials and an extensive trial on the Ajax Football club.
