Awl, Cyst, Lance, Ring, Root-knot, Spiral, Sting, and Stubby-root varieties, so your turf can get back into shape quickly. This photo shows a comparison of the roots of 3 samples only 3 weeks after application. Turf treated with Curfew® has considerably stronger, deeper root development (left) than the two samples on the right, treated with a competing product (middle) and untreated (right). After an application of Curfew®, turf managers will see healthier, enhanced root development, and better looking turf. The increased root mass helps maintain the turf quality, especially during times of drought. Studies have shown that treated turf requires 30% - 50% less irrigation, and utilizesall nutrients from applied fertilizer.
