Golfdom.com Q&A with Aquaritin Turf

Golf greens, golf clubs

In January we sat down with Golfdom in a feature focused around saving Superintendents time, money and labor in their everyday practice. From increasing overall profitability to ensuring the golfers are happy, read on to see how Aquaritin Turf Solutions products can have an impact.

How do your products or services save golf course superintendents time?

Aquaritin 19 is a highly concentrated foliar spray applied at just 6 oz per acre. That’s a lot less handling of materials as compared to nearly 120 gallons of 30-0-0 and 40 gallons of micronutrient foliar apps commonly applied on the fairways.

While you would still need a slow release granular at the beginning of the season, Aquaritin 19 will deliver color, density and protection against biotic and abiotic stress through the playing season. No other supplemental applications are necessary and depending on the conditions, superintendents may be able to lower the total number of fairway applications.

Aquaritin 19 tank mixes easily with all fertilizers, fungicides and pgrs. It does not require any preparation and each 33 oz bottle covers 6 acres. Unlike other nutritional products, Aquaritin 19 delivers plant health without surge growth, which translates to a lot less clippings and cleanings.

The nanosilica in Aquaritin 19 is known to lower water loss and protect the plant against heat stress. Our customer feedback suggests that they have had to hand-water less frequently and they have experienced less stress from foot traffic.

How do your products or services save golf courses materials or fuel?

At nanoscale, Aquaritin is over 60 times more concentrated as compared to conventional products. And that is 60x less product handling. Further, when added to the tank it enhances the efficacy of fertilizers, fungicides and pgrs by up to 30%.

In what other ways do your products or services make golf courses profitable?

Because we are not trucking water around the country, we can afford to price competitively. At $29/acre, Aquaritin 19 is at least half the cost of comparable product combos. 

Nanosilica is known to enhance plant resistance against biotic and abiotic stress. Over time this can result in lowering the applications of fungicides and pesticides.

Silica also lowers water loss resulting in lower use of water. One of our customers has estimated a 22% reduction in irrigation.
