Cool-season turfgrasses, such as Kentucky bluegrass, perennial ryegrass and fine-leaf fescue, can go dormant and turn brown from the stress of high temperatures and drought conditions. In an effort to solve this problem, Brookside Agra developed a proprietary natural water conservation agent and soil amendment called H2OExcel. According to the company, H2OExcel has been scientifically proven by an independent Purdue University research study to improve the health and appearance of turfgrass when heat and drought conditions are high, all while using 30 to 50 percent less water. The company says H2OExcel is also highlighted by:
- The ability to increase root mass, defend against dehydration of the soil and plant, discourage harmful microorganisms, strengthen turf to defend against weeds, reduce the use of fertilizers and lower maintenance costs.
- The creation of a soil profile that allows oxygen and water to naturally penetrate the surface, thus allowing fertilizers and nutrients a more efficient path to the root zone.
- A 100 percent biodegradable blend of desert plant extracts, humic acid-containing biologicals, and other all-natural, non-plant-derived nutrient enhancers.
- The capability to 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.
- The increase of available nutrients and balancing of the amount of water within the root zone of growing plants by supercharging biological activity.
- The flexibility to be blended with fertilizers, pesticides and herbicides.
- Safe use on landscaping, lawns, trees, vegetable gardens and other vegetation.
