SARGE 2.0 is a UV Ray protectant with novel concentrated green pigment. SARGE 2.0 is formulated with a proprietary water soluble humic acid complex to improve the ability of both cool season and warm season turfgrass to help withstand the stresses of heat, electromagnetic radiation, drought, dormancy and other types of environmental or cultural pressures.
Sarge 2.0 Novel Concentrated Green Pigment
The sun emits ultraviolet radiation in the UVA, UVB, and UVC bands. 98.7% of the ultraviolet radiation that reaches the Earth’s surface is within the UVA bandwidth. UVB (shortwave) is a specific portion of the sun’s energy that is only partially absorbed by the ozone layer and can damage biological organisms.
UVB Damage to Plants
Physiological and developmental processes of plants are affected by UVB radiation. Plants have a limited ability to adapt to increased levels of UVB. Excessive heat and ultraviolet light in the UVB (electromagnetic radiation) region of the spectrum can damage plant photo-systems, inhibit photosynthesis and weaken plant structure.
Indirect changes caused by UVB (such as changes in plant form, how nutrients are distributed within the plant, timing of developmental phases and secondary metabolism) may be equally, or sometimes more, important than damaging effects of UVB. These changes can have important implications for plant competitive balance, plant diseases, disruption in timing of developmental phases and secondary metabolism.
The severity of the damage can range from a decline in carbohydrates, reduced energy production and natural plant defense, to cell collapse and plant death.
SARGE 2.0 Technology
SARGE 2.0 is a multi-functional spray pigment with UV Ray Protectant for overall stress relief with humates that provides the turfgrass manager with a set of highly effective, complimentary performances that go beyond other colorant and pigments.
- Highly visible, ultra-rich dark green spray pigment that also provides protection to plants from damaging UV rays
- Increase in photosynthesis proven by university results
- Improves rootzone conditions that lead to healthier and more vigorous plants that are more capable of withstanding disease and environmental stresses
- Safe to turf and the environment
Greens, Tees, Fairways, Lawns, Parks and Sports Turf
Mix SARGE at the following rates; 16 to 32 ounces (600 – 660 ml.) per 100 to 125 gallon (400-500 liters) of water.
Apply SARGE in a 2 gallon (8 liters) spray solution per 1000 sq. ft. (100 sq. meters).
Do not irrigate for 24 hours after application.
