Indigrow’s Diamond Green Offering

Brimpton, Berkshire, England: As more and more fungicides are withdrawn from sale across the United Kingdom, Europe and globally, turf managers have had to look for alternative methods to manage turf diseases.

One of the most common ways turf managers can achieve this is by using more natural or organic products, along with managing available nutrient levels in the soil profile.

Ensuring that plants have enough of each of the important macro and micro nutrients as well as using natural, well-known plant health products like chitosan (Asset Chitosan) have led to reduced disease pressure in many circumstances.

To help further minimise disease pressure, Indigrow has developed Diamond Green, the latest innovation to the turf managers’ fight against well-known turf diseases.

Diamond Green is a liquid fertiliser based on potassium, calcium and magnesium which contains essential plant oils to enhance plant health and increase disease resistance.

“The combination of potassium, calcium and magnesium included in the Diamond Green formulation helps increase cell wall strength within the plant and enhance root mass,” said Brian Croose, Asean Regional Manager for Indigrow, a Full Business Member of the Asian Golf Industry Federation.

“The increased resistance to disease in achieved through this improvement in cell wall strength and increased root mass,” added Croose.

As well as the macro and micro nutrients, Diamond Green also contains essential plant oils which further enhance plant health and the ability of the turf grass plant to resist disease pressure.

Croose added: “The latest research undertaken has proven that these essential plant oils have shown to slow the progress of the growth of the pathogen by increasing a plant’s natural resistance to the disease.

“All of these benefits to the turf grass plant help to improve the plants natural resistance to many known pathogens.”

Indigrow says disease prevention agents, like Diamond Green, should be partnered with traditional nutritional products as part of an effective turf management strategy.

“Diamond Green should be applied before anticipated disease pressure to achieve optimum results,” said Croose.
