TourTurf® SUS StandUp Silicon
EU: 0-0-9 + 18 % Silicon (SiO2)
Potassium silicate concentrate for tournament performance
StandUp Silicon makes every leaf stand up
TourTurf® StandUp Silicon is a liquid turf care product for greens which need faster ball roll.
This product provides better ball roll on greens. It can also be used to easily remove Poa annua seeds from more upright grass plants and also help to prevent certain fungal diseases.
StandUp Silicon is a turf care product, promoting the growth and development of the grass, especially during periods of plant stress or adverse growing conditions.
Plants most easily absorb silicon in the form of ortho silicic acid, soluble in the soil and formed from weathered silicon-based minerals, or as potassium silicate as in StandUp Silicon.
The beneficial effects of silicon have been carefully studied in sports grass. The product provides greater strength in the cell walls and stiffer leaves, greater tolerance to environmental impacts, as well as reduced sensitivity of the plant to pests and diseases.
Silicon is transported in the xylem along with the water flow from the roots and up to the shoots. Here it is embedded in the epidermis of the leaves, xylem, cell walls and cuticle. The absorption of silicon into the epidermis and cell walls results in the development of more upright leaves and a thicker, stronger cuticle layer, which limits non-stomatal perspiration and water loss.
