Impact Accelerate 14-0-12 has long been used in Scandinavia and throughout Europe as a first granular fertiliser application in early Spring. The initial growth effect and early colour provided by this product has helped many courses open earlier in the season when snow cover has melted. During 2018, Indigrow reformulated this product with the addition of Asset, our unique biostimulant coating. Becoming ImpactPlus Accelerate 14-0-12, we were delighted to hear from the course manager at Foxhills Golf Club regarding the success he has had with our latest innovation.
Foxhills Golf Club, Surrey, have been a regular user of Indigrow products for many years. This Spring the course manager, David Wyborn, trialled three different products as his cold start fertiliser. Our ImpactPlus Accelerate 14-0-12 outperformed the comparable products from two different competitors in terms of early colour and growth. The results from his trial ensured that he will choose ImpactPlus Accelerate 14-0-12 as his go-to cold starter product for next season across the whole course.
The trials undertaken by Dave followed by a visit from our agronomist Ian Craig. Whilst undertaking some soil structure tests, it was noted that the greens were a great colour for the time of year.
Samples were taken from several points on the course for our Quality Master Plan (QMP) analysis service. QMP provides physical analysis allowing us to understand what is going on under the surface. Only after physical analysis is nutrient analysis relevant as turf can only utilise nutrients in the most efficient manor with a properly functioning rootzone. The objective measurable data that we’re able to give David and the rest of his team at Foxhills will be invaluable in ensuring that they have a top performing surface for their customers throughout the year.
