ROOT DRIVER FOR GREATER STRESS MANAGEMENT
Floratine’s core technology for driving roots and preconditioning turfgrasses to stress.
Field proven and university tested over the last 20 years, Astron is designed to sustain strength, health and stress resistance in turfgrass. Astron is a proprietary blend of secondary and micronutrients designed for use on highly managed turfgrass. Astron contains antioxidants, organic complexes and extracts of non-plant food source materials derived from natural fermentation processes.
DRIVES ROOTS FOR INCREASED NUTRIENT UPTAKE
INCREASES CARBOHYDRATE RESERVES
INCREASES CELL DIVISION FOR STRESS TOLERANCE AND RECOVERY
WORKS SYNERGISTICALLY WITH PRIMO FOR REDUCED CLIPPING YIELDS AND STRONGER TURF

Apply with any equipment that delivers a fine even spray mist to the target area utilizing 02-04 tips for a total spray volume of 200-350 L/ha. Do not water in. Wait at least 2 hours to irrigate.
RATE OF APPLICATION
Cool-Season Grass: Apply at the rate of 5-10 L/ha any time during the growing season. Regular applications on a 10-14 day schedule may help to improve the respiration rate of the grass during hot, humid weather. Strategic applications are useful to increase turf density without initiating excessive top growth.
Warm-Season Grass: Apply at the rate of 5-10 L/ha any time during the growing season. Make 4-5 applications on a 7-10 day schedule in early fall before dormancy. Spring application should be made after dormancy break.
Astron is tank mix compatible with many systemic fungicides, insecticides and nutrient solutions. Do not mix with Per “4” Max. Jar test when in doubt. Astron contains very high solids content and therefore needs to be shaken intensely to ensure a homogeneous mixture. For best mixing results, remove tank strainer prior to product addition.
