Study tracks staining of turf colorant on clothes

Kansas State University recently conducted a study on whether turf colorants stained clothes more than untreated grass.

The findings were favorable for Endurant turf colorant users who experience no additional staining on clothes from marks made with grass treated with Endurant versus untreated grass.

Other brands caused more staining to clothes, including some of the top brands.

The field studies of potential clothing blemishes on clothes after athletes contact turfgrass treated with colorants were initiated February 16, 2017.

When athletes make contact with the playing surface, colorants will adhere to the turfgras leaf blades.

In some cases though, some colorant brands other than Endurant also blemished clothing and for some brands the blemishing was significantly more than if the grass was left untreated with colorant.

K-State Turfgrass Research published the study in July 2017.

The study was led by Jared A Hoyle and Daniele L McFadden of Kansas State University.

“Effect of Dormant ‘MidIron’ Bermudagrass Colorant Applications on Clothing Blemishing” compared the blemishes created by four brands of turf pigments Endurant Premium left the least amount of blemishing, leaving no more blemishing on clothes than untreated turfgrass.

Sometimes grass stains matter. Endurant turf colorants won't stain clothes like other brand.
Prevent clothes from becoming one big grass stain. Endurant turf colorants won’t stain clothes like other brands, University study finds.

According to the study, a brand called Envy left the most amount of staining on clothing that made contact with turfgrass treated with Envy grass paint.

The objective of the research was to determine if turfgrass pigments and paints blemish athletic clothing after the recommended dry time.

Endurant turf colorants, created by Geoponics, do not cause additional staining to athletes’ clothes when compared with untreated grass.

As many athletes’ clothes are quite expensive, the benefits for teams can be beyond aesthetic and into economic.

We’re proud to share the results of the study.

Many turfgrass professionals find Endurant provides better turf, true natural color, and agronomic benefits while decreasing costs and environmental strains caused by overseeding. Overseeding requires more water usage and damage to water sources as overseeding often includes overwatering and over-fertilizing winter turf.

While Endurant turf colorants aren’t really anything new, more and more people in professions including agriculture, golf course management, landscaping, sod farming, real estate, sports field management, and others are learning how helpful Endurant turf color enhancers can be in a variety of conditions, including drought, dormancy, water restrictions, tight budgets, television and filming.

Endurant can be used on dormant turf, actively growing grass, warm season and cool season grasses.

Ask Mr. Wise Grass about Endurant turf colorants

West Coast Turf and their sister company Western Sod have lauded the benefits of Endurant as an alternative to overseed. Mr. Wise Grass is the name of a West Coast Turf blog where a turfgrass pro named Jay posts information on everything you need to know about the best sod and turfgrass for your environment, uses, and budget. He answers common questions regarding issues surrounding grass and more technical issues that can be resolved with years of professional experience.

Here’s what Jay has to say about Endurant turf paint:

This product can be applied to overseeded or dormant turf to give your lawn the same ryegrass color you seeded with. The turf paint serves another purpose besides just providing color. It heats up the plant and will allow for faster spring green up in dormant turf and will help new ryegrass plants fill in any voids from the encroaching bermudagrass during seeding.
