SACOA’s LURE H20 Turf Ultra has been formulated for all soil types and helps maintain turf quality through periods of dry weather by maximising the effectiveness of rainfall and irrigation water. By capturing and retaining rainfall, LURE H20 Turf Ultra provides a moisture bank that improves rapid reestablishment and reduces dry period plant stress. LURE H20 Turf Ultra design is ideal as a soil applied application prior to installation of roll-on turf or the implementation of a turf seeding program. When applied following these label instructions, this product will overcome hydrophobia and improve water utilisation in all forms of turf management. To maximise effectiveness use while soil is still wet.
Replicated trials in WA have shown that when correctly applied, LURE H2O Turf Ultra improves water use efficiency by minimising runoff to capture the rain and it then banks the moisture in the soil profile for an extended period. This provides a cost-effective solution for broadacre areas where maximisation of rainfall is paramount.
These effects also assist new turf establishment when LURE H2O Turf Ultra is soil-applied prior to roll-on or seeding.
Soil moisture (Volumetric Water Content) was monitored over an extended period & the tracking data at 5cm & 20cm depths show a marked improvement in rainfall capture & retention into the soil on the treated areas.
These trials have shown that when correctly applied, LURE H2O Turf Ultra changes the soil’s surface characteristics and allows water that would normally runoff or evaporate to be captured in the soil’s profile for an extended period.
