Mid Herts Golf Club's Head Greenkeeper, Jody Wilson, took part in a trial of the recently launched ProNitro® coated seed from DLF.

Composition

ProNitro® is considered the next generation of seed coat technology aimed at improving nutrient utilisation during the early stages of plant growth particularly important when overseeding into a competitive sward.

Containing 15% Nitrogen, both fast acting and slow release, Nitrogen uptake with ProNitro® is up to four times more efficient compared to broadcast applied fertilisers.

Roots and shoots grow rapidly, delivering up to a 30% increase in root growth, and the seedlings become strong and vigorous with up to 34% more viable plants. The enhanced root growth also improves the availability of soil nutrients and can reduce nutrient loss into the environment through leaching by over 50%.

Trial period and result

In the trial, the area to the back of the tee was sown with Johnsons J Nitro Tee and the area to the front was sown with J Tee.

Jody commented: “The difference between the uncoated and ProNitro® coated Johnsons J Tee has been more than significant. Not only were germination and establishment faster with the ProNitro® but the colour and density were noticeably better too! The plot sown with ProNitro® treated seed germinated three days sooner, has less weed and was also much more consistent across the whole area in terms of coverage.

"There is also the not insignificant cost benefit too as the treated plot has had no additional fertiliser applied. I wouldn’t have any reservations using Pro Nitro treated seed again being confident that I could get areas back into play much quicker than with untreated seed and it helps my budget go further too.”
