New Products From ICL At SALTEX: ICL provides a wide variety of products for turf, landscape and industrial areas. Visitors to stand K030 will be able to find out more about Lockstar, a new residual, pre-emergent herbicide that controls a broad spectrum of weeds.
Elsewhere on the SALTEX show floor, ICL’s International Technical Manager Dr. Andy Owen will be leading a seminar entitled Managing Parasitic Nematodes with Seaweed. Commencing on the second day of SALTEX in Learning LIVE Theatre Two at 12:40pm Andy will be providing an insight into ICL’s unique four-year research project which is exploring the effects of seaweed products on turfgrass plant parasitic nematodes.
The project, which is taking place at Royal Holloway, University of London, was founded due to the apparent rise of nematodes. As it stands, there are few options available for the turf manager who has a nematode problem but ICL is currently researching whether seaweed could offer a solution. Andy, who will be joined by PhD student Tamsin Williams, is of the opinion that when the right seaweed is applied to a grass plant it could change the resistance of the plant to disease and insect attack and both Andy and Tamsin will be revealing their current findings.
The ICL stand will feature a barista and free drinks will be available throughout the two-day event, so any SALTEX visitors looking to improve their turf or landscape areas should ensure that a visit to stand K030 is on their agenda.
