Aston Turf Garlic Spray®

The natural way for healthy resilient turf

Aston Turf is a cost-effective method of growing a healthy sward in a sustainable way.

Growers since ancient times have noticed that garlic plants (Allium sativum) are not attractive to certain insects, animals and fungi and they used garlic sprays to stimulate the natural ability of plants to resist pests and diseases. Today, garlic treatments are routinely used as a growth supplement in various crops such as lettuce, tomatoes, strawberries, ornamentals, wheat, brassicas and for healthier, insect and fungal-free turf.

Aston Turf is a natural product formulated from garlic extract. It is concentrated and biodegradable. It contains high levels of selenium and sulphur  which has anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties. It is suitable for use in all turf areas and general amenity areas including parks, playing fields, grassland and conservation areas.

 

Due to it's sulphur and selenium content Aston Turf has the following benefits:

When applied in a programme of  treatments it will promote good clean healthy root systems and an excellent sward.

Stimulates growth, vigour and tillering

Helps to resist the adverse effects of stress due to drought and unbalanced nutrition, assists in optimising the effects of fertilisation

Fungal and Insect suppression

Regular use of Aston Turf assists grass to resist or recover from most of the common fungal diseases such as Anthracnose, Brown Patch, Fusarium, Fairy Ring, Dollar Spot and Red Thread and aid turf's natural resistance to insects such as crane fly, frit fly, and recover from damage caused by nematodes.

Research worldwide has shown garlic's fungistatic and fungicidal activity against Fusarium oxysporum, Phytophthora spp., Phythium spp., Rhizoctonia solani, Botrytis cinerea, Alternaria brassisicola, Sclerotinia and other pathogenic fungi.
