We asked select suppliers and manufacturer industry experts: What benefits are customers looking for with your organic products, and what are some of the new technologies/ organic products being used in the industry for the last few years?

Topdressing with a good organic produces healthier, high-quality turfgrass that holds water and chemicals longer. More recently, good maintenance programs are also including the use of liquid, natural humates — such as our REV — as a way to both boost plants’ health and stretch limited dollars. Wet or dry, good organics, like reed sedge peat, are distinctly characterized by a low C:N ratio to enhance the root zone, a high cation exchange capacity (CEC) to store and supply nutrients needed for growth, a pH range of 6.0 to 7.5 and high levels of microbial activity.
