New microbial powder helps solve liquid storage problems

By |  February 8, 2017 0 Comments

Have a problem storing liquid microbial products at your course? If so, you may be interested in a new water-soluble microbial powder being introduced at this week’s Golf Industry Show.

KaPre RemeD8-WSP powder, from Performance Nutrition (booth 2071), is an addition to the KaPre RemeD8 product line. The company says the new powder is an “ideal option for customers with storage conditions that can have a negative impact on liquid microbial products.”

Performance Nutrition, a division of LidoChem, Inc., says that like KaPre RemeD8 liquid, the new product is a microbe delivery system that gives superintendents an important new tool to feed soil and grow healthier, stress-tolerant turf. However, unlike its liquid counterpart, the company says KaPre RemeD8-WSP will be more tolerant of high heat and cold temperatures, which are detrimental to all liquid microbial products.

When applied with its companion product, KaPre Activ8 Fertilizer Additive, KaPre RemeD8-WSP delivers the same microbes and proprietary food sources as the liquid product. KaPre Activ8 solution contains the same broth found in the original KaPre RemeD8, however, the new formulation contains a higher concentration of organic nutrients and microbial food sources, plus Pennamin amino acids.

KaPre RemeD8-WSP is packaged in water-soluble packets that dissolve in water in seconds, while KaPre Activ8 is packaged in 2.5-gallon jugs. The applicator uses one jug of KaPre Activ8 for each 8-ounce packet of KaPre RemeD8-WSP. The microbes become active when added to the tank along with the recommended rate of KaPre Activ8, resulting in consistent, reliable microbial populations for measurable results.

LidoChem, Inc.’s Performance Nutrition division was established in 1999 to develop new and “greener” products and technologies for the agricultural and turf markets. You can find more information at,, or by calling (732) 888-8000.
