Breathe life into soil with Agriox

If there is one thing you cannot have too much of in soil, it is oxygen. Agriox is more efficient than physical aerification processes because air doesn’t provide as much oxygen as Agriox can provide. Together, physical aeration techniques complemented by Agriox’s increased soil oxygen, leads to optimal spring time green up and healthy turf.

As many sod growers and golf course superintendents experienced a setback in spring greenup and growth due to late March frosts, Agriox is helping turf professionals nationwide more than ever.

Golf & turf: Lowering the environmental footprint

When we celebrate Earth Day, we mean it. Geoponics is lowering the environmental footprint of golf courses, the golf industry, athletic fields, home lawns and farms.

Using Geoponics products, including surfactants & Endurant turf colorants, is measurably decreasing the environmental footprint in golf.
Earth Day 2017: Using Geoponics products, including surfactants & Endurant turf colorants, is measurably decreasing the environmental footprint in golf.

Endurant turf colorants replaced the old common environmentally costly practice of overseed. Endurant is lowering the environmental footprint of golf by reducing the practices of overseeding, including overwatering and over fertilizing. While Endurant gained in popularity over the course of 10 years, overseeding practices declined by 50 percent in the same 10 year period, according to Golf Management Magazine and the Golf Course Superintendents Association of America.

The effect on the golf industry alone has been dramatic as indicated by recent studies. Geoponics has expanded to offering more alternatives to home users whose lawn care practices can have an even more dramatic effect due to their collective acreage.
