Idaho, United States: Elicitor, used routinely as a foliar spray or applied for root uptake, includes elicitor molecules designed to induce natural plant defence responses.
Active compounds in Elicitor are derived from biological and chemical sources known to improve a plant’s response to stress.
Research has shown these specifically selected and proprietary combination of elicitors can help maintain a healthy plant when environmental stress becomes a problem.
“Maximising plant vigour during environmental stress remains central to our product innovation strategy and Elicitor provides a unique set of compounds designed to improve turf grass performance under adverse growing conditions such as low mowing heights, high traffic, shade, salinity, extreme temperature, and water deficit,” said Gordon Kauffman III, PhD, Technical Manager Turf and Ornamental at Brandt/Grigg Brother, a Full Business Member of the Asian Golf Industry Federation.
Elicitor contains various elements and natural biological extracts such as silicon, molybdenum, cobalt, zinc, kelp, yucca, and others which are known elicitors.
Formulated with Grigg Brothers’ natural and organic chelation technology, Elicitor contains organic and amino acids to facilitate the absorption and translocation of applied nutrients and non-plant food ingredients.
Mark Grigg, President of Grigg Brothers, said: “We have been working on this formulation for years and I am very excited about the results. We expect Elicitor to effectively supplement our existing and successful foliar nutrient formulations to aid our customers in achieving peak performance of highly maintained turf grass.”
