SANTA FE SPRINGS, Calif. (June 12, 2019)Target Specialty Products, a leading provider of turf and ornamental landscaping solutions in the U.S. and Canada, introduces Turf Fuel® THE KRAKEN™. THE KRAKEN™ is an advanced wetting agent designed for turf surfaces that require the highest level of consistency and firmness.

“Through exhaustive university trials and close consultation with our network of industry experts, we have learned that professionals at the highest-level demand control over their soil hydration. Kraken combines multiple components to provide ultimate control of hydration and firmness” says Mark Jull, Head of Turf Fuel Products’ Division, at Target Specialty Products. The research has been conducted by Dr. Doug Karcher at the University of Arkansas.  

“Kraken is completely unique in the market because of its ability to hold water consistently deep in the profile, while keeping the soil near the surface dry,” adds Jim Turner, Turf Fuel® Specialty Product Development Manager.

Turf Fuel’s® THE KRAKEN™ can be used at any time during the season, however, many turf professionals strategically use Kraken in conjunction with Turf Fuel® Cleanse®, Abyss™ and Vanquish® depending on season and soil conditions to achieve the best results.

Turf Fuel® products are designed to help turf professionals get the most out of their turf even in extremely stressful conditions.

Turf Fuel® product development process starts with input from a vast network of technical sales representatives and customers.  Turf Fuel® team works with experts in biotechnology, chemistry and agronomy to develop uniquely effective solutions.  This approach leads to highly differentiated product innovations.

Target Specialty Products continues to experience exceptional growth and will continue its expansion throughout North America, expanding its footprint and customer service efforts across the West, Midwest, and East Coast regions.
