SUSTANE 5-2-4+Fe

Suståne 5-2-4+Fe is the original Suståne formula first created in 1988. As this was the first Suståne product available on the market, it soon became the standard organic evaluated by numerous universities. Michigan State University, Cornell, University of Rhode Island were three of the first research facilities to discover that Suståne 5-2-4+Fe was highly suppressive of common diseases affecting cool season grasses including root Pythium, Necrotic Ring Spot, Red Thread and to a lesser extent various patch diseases. More organic fertilizer studies have been run utilizing Suståne 5-2-4+Fe as the standard against which all other “organics” are compared.

Benefits• Increases the nutrient and water holding capacity of the soil • Strengthens plants’ tolerance against hot, dry conditions • Promotes greater root development • Improves buffering against changes in soil pH • Increases the soil’s ability to suppress plant pathogens • Enhanced disease suppression • Increased soil porosity and stability for greater root development and water holding capacity • Provides quick green up followed by six to eight weeks of even color and growth Sustane 5-2-4+Fe is the all-purpose turf food and is available in either Medium Grade (lawn and fairway applications) or Fine Grade for putting greens. Suitable for use on all turfgrass types providing quick green up followed by long lasting slow release organic nitrogen. Use where even growth and color is needed for six to eight weeks.
Features Enhanced Disease Suppression Begins with Suståne Natural Based Fertilizers Results of studies conducted over the past 20 years have clearly shown the potential for compost amendments to reduce the severity and incidence of a wide variety of turfgrass diseases. For best results in disease suppression apply either as a topdressing after core aerification, as a late autumn winter cover, mixed as a root zone amendment or better yet use as the standard fertilizer treatment three to four applications per growing season. Studies have shown that applying Suståne 5-2-4 plus Iron results in a significant decrease in many turfgrass diseases. The numbers below represent the percent decrease in severity of turfgrass diseases.
