Omya adds GreenLight soil conditioning and turf nutrition portfolio

By |  July 6, 2021 0 Comments

Omya, a global producer of industrial minerals, has launched GreenLight, a portfolio of highly efficient, granulated soil conditioning and turf nutrition products for the U.S. turf and ornamental market.

Developed for golf courses, sports fields and other turf, GreenLight neutralizes soil acidity to adjust pH to the optimal level for nutrient availability and fertilizer use. Omya said GreenLight also releases calcium into the soil.

“Golfers want high-quality greens that give them the best opportunity to play well,” said Rich Zap, Omya director of sales, who has been working closely with golf course superintendents on the development of GreenLight. “Superintendents and agronomists are aiming for turf that is firm but not hard, which can recover quickly from ball impact, leaving the putting surface perfect for the next player. GreenLight contributes to that by improving soil texture and enhancing root growth for better quality turf.”

GreenLight is available in three formulations: GreenLight Ca, Mg and S, and three grades: GreenLight Prime, GreenLight and GreenLight Max with different granule sizes. GreenLight can be spread using standard equipment, according to the company. It is low in dust and highly soluble.

“We recommend turfgrass managers apply low rates of GreenLight at regular intervals during the season,” Zap said. “The choice of formulations gives flexibility depending on the time of year and the agronomic requirements, which can be identified easily through soil sampling.”
