Biostimulants derived from seaweed extracts, such as those from brown seaweeds like Ascophyllum nodosum, can provide a range of benefits to turf and ornamental plants. These extracts contain a variety of bioactive compounds, including hormones, minerals, vitamins, amino acids, and other nutrients. When applied to plants, they can enhance growth, stress tolerance, and overall health. They can also play an important role in speeding up your lawn’s green-up time. Root Boost Organic Turf and Plant Supplement is the perfect biostimulant addition to any lawn or ornamental garden.

Here are several ways Root Boost can help:

1. Enhanced root development: Seaweed extracts can stimulate root growth, which can lead to improved nutrient uptake and water absorption. That’s why we named it Root Boost! A healthy root system enables your grass to access the resources it needs to green up quickly.

2. Improved nutrient uptake and assimilation: Root Boost can increase the availability and uptake of essential nutrients like nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium. This improved nutrient uptake can support faster and more vigorous growth, leading to a greener lawn in the spring.

3. Boosted chlorophyll production and photosynthesis: Root Boost can enhance chlorophyll production in grass, which in turn improves the efficiency of photosynthesis. Increased photosynthesis can lead to faster growth and a greener lawn.

4. Enhanced stress tolerance: Root Boost can help grass better cope with various environmental stressors, such as temperature fluctuations and frost during early spring. By increasing the grass's stress tolerance, seaweed extracts can promote a more rapid green-up.

5. Activation of soil microbes: Root Boost can stimulate the activity of beneficial soil microbes that help release nutrients and promote healthy root growth. This can contribute to a healthier, greener lawn in the spring.

Root Boost, like all seaweed derived biostimulants, is a sustainable and environmentally friendly alternative to synthetic fertilizers and growth regulators, reducing the need for chemicals in plant management. Overall, Root Boost can contribute to healthier, more resilient turf and ornamental plants, and can help reduce reliance on synthetic fertilizers and pesticides.

Organic Biostimulants and Moisture Management

Root Boost Organic Biostimulant

Root Boost is an organic seaweed extract that is a source of cytokinins and auxins which increase root growth, tiller, rhizome and stolon production resulting in increased plant vigor and optimized stress tolerance.

Hydretain Moisuture Management

Hydretain is a unique blend of humectant and hygroscopic compounds that manage root zone moisture, significantly extending periods between required waterings for turf, ornamental plants, shrubs, trees and agricultural crops.
