The Performance Foliar Treatment™ (PFT™) 

safely and efficiently delivers foliar nutrition, micronutrition and disease suppression. Turf treated with the PFT™ develops highly fibrous and branched root systems, stays greener longer and is more stress tolerant.

As with other Performance™ Treatments, PFT™ is easy to use and apply. No pre-mixing or pre-soaking is required and all of the products are compatible with each other and most fertilizers and chemicals. Most PFT™ applications require 5 products or less – Nutrol®, Prudent® and the choice of Vibrant® Foliar Fertilizers and Krystal Klear® Chelated Micronutrients. Treatments can be tailored to meet the specific requirements of the turf.

BENEFITS OF PERFORMANCE FOLIAR TREATMENT:

  • Controls and suppresses foliar and soil-borne pathogens
  • Supports turf’s natural defenses with organic supplements
  • Delivers a wide array of micronutrients and trace elements to quickly correct micronutrient deficiencies for optimum turf growth
  • Provides quicker uptake of nutrients through foliar application
  • Prevents alkaline hydrolysis and optimizes pesticide applications
