About The Treatment

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, Krystal Klear® Chelated Micronutrients and KaPre® KelpPlus. Treatments can be tailored to meet the specific requirements of the turf.
