Key Considerations for Turf Growers


Overall appearance and plant health are key when it comes to growing turf, and it’s especially important to achieve greenness without overgrowth. A good nutrient management plan can help these crops achieve optimal appearance and better tolerate stress and disease.


Turf requires well-drained, noncompacted soils for best results. Weeds, diseases and pests can be a big problem for turf, and it is recommended to use chemical control options to keep fields pest-free.

Key Nutrients

  • Iron — Essential in giving turf a greener appearance.
  • Nitrogen — Needed to help plants tolerate stress and resist disease. Nitrogen also helps improve crop density, colour and growth.
  • Phosphorus — This nutrient helps improve the rate of seedling development, as well as maturation and root growth.
  • Potassium — Key to overall growth, potassium should be applied throughout the season to improve resistance to drought, disease and cold.
  • Calcium, Magnesium & Sulfur — Apply only occasionally.
