In recreational (turf grass) and athletic field management, clinoptilolite has proven to be very beneficial. Zeolite Premier Turf acts as a sponge reservoir for nitrate, phosphate, and potassium nutrients – the most important elements for plant health and growth.
Zeolite Premier Turf holds these elements in the fertilizer in its crystalline structure until the roots seek them. When plant root action, or water leaching, depletes soil nutrient levels, the zeolite reservoir then releases sufficient nutrients to satisfy the plant roots demands. Unlike so-called “water resistant” fertilizer treatments, the zeolite-held fertilizer is NOT affected by rain, even over long time periods. Then, much LESS fertilizer is used as compared to application without zeolite. Excess fertilizer components, particularly nitrates and phosphates, do not enter the local aquifer during runoff.
Zeolite Premier Turf improves plant growth and significantly lowers the cost of acreage management while being environmentally friendly. It is especially beneficial in sandy soils.
