Baileys are excited to introduce the latest addition to their TURFECT Range of biologically enhanced foliar turf products.

New TURFECT BOOST is a highly concentrated humic acid soil conditioner and biological inoculant, designed to enhance soil fertility and capacity to support healthy turf growth.  

Containing 26% soluble humic substances, this supercharged carbon source is particularly effective on depleted or sandy soils to improve water and nutrient holding capacity and promote turf recovery and resilience in stressful conditions.

What are Humic Substances?

Humic and Fulvic acids are naturally derived organic substances from the breakdown of ancient plant and microbial matter.  These acids are the foundation of all fertile soils, acting to hold a wide range of micro and macro-nutrients around plant roots for quick root uptake and optimum plant growth.

Humic acids also improve the wetting and water-holding ability of the soil. Ongoing applications accumulate to provide greater nutrient holding ability, readily available carbon food source for beneficial soil micro-organisms and overall improve soil structures. This in turn enhances results from applied fertilisers and improves long-term soil fertility.

Biowish Microbe Technology

TURFECT BOOST contains the breakthrough microbial inoculants, Biowish. 

This proprietary blend of beneficial Bacillus is designed to be robust and operate in a wide range of conditions. An induced epigenetic shift in the microbes expresses specific attributes that improve performance across a broad range of environments, specifically acting to: 

  • Converts nitrogen into the plant-available form and bound phosphorous into available phosphorous.
  • Produce a number of enzymes that break down complex organic molecules.
  • Strengthen hyphal networks and help roots grow.

 Baileys new TURFECT Range of foliar turf fertilisers and soil conditioners utilise leading biological technology and WA specific formulations to optimise turf vigour, colour, root development, nutrient uptake and soil health. Discover the full range here.
