High-Performance Turf Nutrition
Posted on March 11, 2021
The combination of Contec DG® - Gen 3 dispersing granules and Foltec® SG soluble granules provides ideal premium nutrition for greens, tees, and other fine turf.
Gen 3 represents the latest evolution of the Contec DG product range. Featured on select products, these patented granules are easy to spread and easy to see, saving turf managers both time and money.
These granules are completely homogeneous, allowing for a consistent spread pattern. The granules also stand out against turf, making it easy to see where product has been applied, decreasing the possibility of over-application.
Gen 3 products utilize the same patented Dispersing Granule (DG) Technology featured on all Contec DG products. When DG granules come in contact with water, they immediately begin to disperse and move through the root zone, allowing for a firmer, residue-free playing surface and less down time.
THE GEN 3 PRODUCT RANGE
Gen 3 technology is featured on select Contec DG greens and fairway products. The products below represent the current Contec DG – Gen 3 offering.
Foltec SG is an innovative foliar nutrient technology utilizing a proprietary combination of dry, 100% soluble nutrient granules that quickly solubilize in the spray tank. Designed to be different, Foltec SG is changing the way turf managers think about complex foliar nutrition programs.
Each Foltec SG product contains a specific N-P-K ratio along with essential micronutrients, UltraMate SG (humate/carbon) and sea plant extract. Packaged in resealable foil-lined bags with easy-open tear strips to save time and effort, Foltec SG truly allows you to spray smarter.
Foltec SG Product Range
Foltec SG is formulated in four of the most widely used agronomic N-P-K ratios: High N (24-0-8), High P (8-24-8), High K (8-0-24), and High N and K (16-0-16), along with a minors package. These formulas can be easily combined to create your preferred N-P-K ratio.
Application and Coverage
Foltec SG can be introduced into the spray tank through an inductor, or by removing the basket strainer and pouring Foltec SG directly into the spray tank, with adequate water and agitation. Foltec SG solubilizes quickly and thoroughly with typical agitation. Foltec SG products have also been shown to be compatible with many commonly used control products.
Foltec SG is packaged based on application rate and coverage. A single 13.6-lb. bag of the 24-0-8, 8-0-24, 8-24-8, and 16-0-16 products will cover one acre at the typical application rate, while a single 2.25-lb. bag of the Minors product will cover one acre at the typical application rate.
