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.

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
