Fast-acting Ammonium Nitrogen that lowers Soil pH
Ammonium Advantage. The nitrogen in Ammonium Sulfate 7-0-0, 8% Sulfur is 100% ammonium. When the turfgrass roots take up the ammonium form of nitrogen, they release hydrogen ions creating an acid zone around the root area. This acidic rhizosphere can suppress certain soil-borne diseases while enhancing
Disease Suppression. Ammonium Sulfate 7-0-0, 8% Sulfur helps reduce turf diseases, including summer patch, take-all patch, and spring dead spot. Ammonium Sulfate 7-0-0, 8% Sulfur is NOT a fungicide, nor does it claim to be one. However, the application of Ammonium Sulfate 7-0-0, 8% Sulfur can provide an environment that is more conducive to reducing certain plant diseases.
Increased Micronutrient Availability. Ammonium Sulfate 7-0-0, 8% Sulfur increases the solubility of key micronutrients like iron and manganese, making them more available for plant uptake. Nitrogen is the single most important nutrient
that contributes to turf color. The ammonium form of nitrogen in Ammonium Sulfate 7-0-0, 8% Sulfur is less prone to environmental losses due to leaching, volatilization and denitrification. As a result, more N is often retained in the root zone and available for plant uptake. The ammonium form of nitrogen also improves uptake of phosphorus, manganese and iron – three nutrients that are also associated with desirable turf color. Finally, Ammonium Sulfate 7-0-0, 8% Sulfur contains readily available sulfur, which also contributes to development of turf color.
