How can Stressgard help mitigate stress from shade and low light conditions?
- Photosynthesis is the driver of all plant energy production and subsequent processes
- The protection and maintenance of chlorophyll with Stressgard ultimately improves the turf’s ability to photosynthesise, which is beneficial to all turfgrass under any stress condition
1. A study by Huang and Liu, published in 2009 in the International Turfgrass Society Research Journal showed that Signature® Stressgard® alone in the absence of disease, can improve photosynthesis under low light conditions.
2. Research by Danneberger et. al in 2017 from Ohio State University demonstrated the positive impact of Signature on creeping bentgrass in shade, being thicker, more rigid cell walls, complete cells and higher internal turgor pressure leading to upright, non-elongated growth.
