The Ohio State University
This project was designed to evaluate turf quality and growth response from several natural organic granular fertilizers. In summary, the Sanctuary product was one of the top performing products in the study for residual color.
Iowa State University
This project was designed to evaluate turf quality and growth response from several natural organic granular fertilizers. All treatments were applied at a rate of 4 lbs. N/M in split applications – 2 lbs. mid May and 2 lbs. mid August. Overall, The Sanctuary was the best performer in the trial for turf quality, density and consistent growth pattern having the fewest growth spikes.
The objective of this trial was to evaluate various fertilizers for their effects on creeping bentgrass putting greens. This project was designed to evaluate turf color, quality and growth response. The Sanctuary fertilizer was the top performing organic fertilizer in the trial.
Colorado State University
The objective of this trial was to evaluate the recovery time after aeration of Sanctuary products in comparison with a standard traditional chemical fertilizer product. The Sanctuary organic product reduced the aeration recovery time by 10 days as compared to a traditional chemical turf fertilizer.
This project was designed to evaluate the impact on the native microbial populations when using both organic and traditional fertilizer products. This study examined the impact on the overall change in microbial populations, the impact on nutrient availability and the impact on turf quality. In summary, the Sanctuary provided the nutrient and nutritional levels to improve turf quality.
