Idaho, United States: GreenPIG UV has joined the successful Grigg Brothers colourant line alongside the original GreenPIG and GreenPIG Ultra.
GreenPIG UV contains a proprietary compound designed to block ultra-violet light (UV) for enhanced turf colour and quality.
Mark Grigg, President and Chief Executive Officer, said: “Grigg Brothers will continue to innovate and study ways to improve plant health and overall quality, and GreenPIG UV provides one such, science based, solution.”
Turf managers now have another option to improve turf performance by reducing its exposure to potentially harmful ultraviolet (UV) and near infrared (NIR) light, while maintaining optimum capture of photo-synthetically active visible light.
This may promote more efficient energy capture and a reduction in oxidative stress.
Grigg Brothers has been a valuable partner in the golf and sports turf industry since 1995.
Its Proven Foliar liquid and GreenSpec granular fertiliser technologies are backed by many years of independent university research and extensive field trials.
“Grigg Brothers continues to offer turfgrass managers and greenkeepers proven fertiliser solutions with unmatched quality, performance, and compatibility,” said a spokesperson for the company, part of the Brandt Company, a Full Business Member of the Asian Golf Industry Federation.
