What is Primo Maxx ??
Primo Maxx reduces top growth while improving both sward density and root mass. It has a unique active ingredient which reduces vertical growth, increases food reserves and lateral stem development.
This creates a healthier and thicker sward that can better withstand temperature extremes, moisture loss and heavy wear and tear...
Hence the name, growth regulator.
I told her what height we cut them at last year. "Are we cutting them higher then?" (baring in mind we used to cut the fairways at 20 mil and we're now cutting them at 14 mil).
Midge really couldn't believe they were shorter, she thought I was joking. I explained to her...
"Nan" I said, (haha)..."When you cut the grass shorter, you're encouraging the finer grass species to come through. This naturally creates lateral growth which makes the fairways seem longer than they are ....when they're not.
The height is an illusion, caused by the amount of the grass coverage; cutting it shorter improves the sward density. Whereas before, we were cutting them at 20mil+. This meant that the longer species such as Rye-grass shadow the finer ones, leading to poor coverage on the fairways"........"
Ohh!" she said.
What I'm trying to say is, the 1st application of Primo Maxx has been applied and I'm looking forward to seeing the results. The growth regulator had a massive impact on the fairways last year, so I can only imagine how good they will be this year as we continue the program.

You must watch it now!
This guy has some serious putting skills
I know..... it only took me one attempt !
