Grigg Brothers introduces Rhizonify to promote turfgrass vigor

Introducing Rhizonify, a new technologically advanced, value-added formulation from Grigg Brothers designed to facilitate the interaction of turfgrass roots with water, nutrients, and sugars in the rhizosphere to improve rooting, enhance plant energy status, and promote turfgrass vigor in challenging soil conditions or during environmental stress.

"We all know that photosynthesis provides an energy source for turfgrass plants," says company agronomist Gary Grigg, "but under many of today's turf management conditions like - low mowing heights, shade, salt stress, compaction, and hydrophobic soil - the plant's photosynthetic productivity declines and subsequent energy production and storage slows as a result of all the variables working against the turfgrass and as metabolic activity declines, so do root exudates that are essential for optimum turf quality"

Applications of Rhizonify™ enhance and replenish plant and soil carbohydrates in the rhizosphere to successfully overcome limitations encountered during many conditions turfgrass managers face. In some locations, adverse soil conditions warrant its use as part of a general maintenance strategy.

Placement and solubility of the carbohydrate and nutrient contained in Rhizonify™ determine its efficacy. Rhizonify was strategically developed and formulated with a specifically designed wetting agent to improve water penetration and nutrient placement. The wetting agent technology also provides a uniform soil wetting front for the carbohydrates and nutrient contained in Rhizonify™ to reach its target - the entire rhizosphere. Rhizonify also provides a useful tool to manage and promote recovery from hydrophobic soil conditions or localized dry spot (LDS).

Rhizonify™ is available in the same trusted formulation of quality, performance, and compatibility as all Grigg Brothers® products.

"Grigg Brothers has proven itself to be a valuable partner in the golf and sports turf industry since 1995. Their Proven Foliar™ liquid and GreenSpec™ granular fertilizer technologies are backed by many years of independent university research and extensive field trials. Grigg Brothers continues to offer turfgrass managers and greenkeepers proven fertilizer® solutions with unmatched quality, performance, and compatibility."

"The Grigg Brothers® Proven Foliar® product line possesses several unique characteristics that account for their superior performance. Central to these unique formulations are the proprietary natural plant and organic compounds that chelate and complex the nutrients. Each nutrient is addressed specifically and matched to a specific formulation of natural agents and organic facilitators that assist in the vascular transport of all nutrients, keeping them mobile and available for plant use."
