Key benefits of Cool Terra for Golf and Sports turf
Improve water and nutrient efficiency. By enhancing the soil structure with a durable and porous, fixed-carbon soil amendment, the valuable nutrition applied can be more efficiently used by the plant through nutrient retention in the root zone and reduced fertilizer leaching and runoff.
Build soil structure with Cool Terra to improve the water-holding capacity of the soil, optimize infiltration rates, and limit evaporative loss to strengthen your turf roots and support greener, longer lasting turf.
Provide an environment for microbial growth through Cool Terra’s highly porous physical structure which serves as an ideal environment for microbial population. A healthy, diverse soil microbiome can result in fewer plant stressors and diseases.
