H2OExcel Relieves Heat, Drought Stress in Grass

Published online: Jun 21, 2017 Chemicals

The recent summer heat wave has propelled daytime temperatures across much of the country to an excess of 100 degrees.

As a result of the high temperatures and drought conditions, cool season turfgrasses such as Kentucky Bluegrass, Perennial Ryegrass and Fine Leaf Fescue have gone dormant and turned brown from stress.

Golf course superintendents continue to excessively water and fertilize their grasses, only to see them continue to turn brown and succumb to weeds during the summer months.

O'Fallon, Illinois-based Brookside Agra has developed a proprietary, natural water conservation agent called H2OExcel that has been scientifically proven by a university research study to improve the health and appearance of turfgrass when heat and drought conditions are high, using 30% to 50% less water.

H2OExcel is a 100% biodegradable, proprietary blend of desert plant extracts; high-quality, humic acid-containing biologicals; and other all-natural, non-plant derived nutrient enhancers. Highly efficient, H2OExcel and can change the polarity of water and soil to increase biological activity, interact with soil capillarity pressure and defend against dehydration of both the soil and plants by keeping water available deeper within the soil profile. H2OExcel also helps to increase available nutrients and balance the amount of water within the root zone of growing plants by supercharging biological activity. 

Researchers from Purdue University proved through an independent research study the effectiveness of H2OExcel in maintaining healthy turf.
