Apply Ag1000® at the rate of 1 gallon per acre per week year round through irrigation systems.

Tips for a success with Ag1000®

  1. For greens, apply the Ag1000® with a hose-end sprayer, backpack sprayer and dilute one ounce per gallon of water (1:128). For fairways, inject Ag1000® into the irrigation system at a rate of 1 gallon per acre per week for a total of 40 gallons per acre per year. It is best to apply Ag1000® once a week for maintaining optimal turf quality and health.
  2. Ag1000® does not provide many plant nutrients. Therefore fertilizers are needed. If using liquid fertilizers, Ag1000® can be added after fertilizers are diluted with water. Store fertilizers in separate tanks than the Ag1000® and inject into irrigation lines using a Mazzie® injector or a dosage pump.
  3. Use a "mulching mower" to chop and redeposit the grass clippings. Spray Ag1000® onto the turf after mowing. This enables the clippings to rapidly breakdown into stable organic matter for the soil. Organic matter particles provides a home for Ag1000® to establish in the soil.
  4. If soils are real compacted, salty, or showing signs of severe compaction, it may be necessary to inject the Ag1000® with additional products such as a wetting agent and liquid humate. The wetting agent will help with penetration and the humate will add much needed organic matter that will help with opening up the soil and chelation of salts.
