Turf Fuel™ Root Down Strengthens Plants, Fights Sodium and Bicarbonates and Enhances Turf Color


SANTA FE SPRINGS, Calif. (Jan 24, 2019)Target Specialty Products, a leading provider of turf and ornamental landscaping solutions in the U.S. and Canada, has launched Turf Fuel Root Down, a product for turf professionals to strengthen plants, fight sodium and bicarbonates and enhance turf color.

Root Down 18-0-0 is a combination of acidified nitrogen, micronutrients and a strategic amount of surfactant. Root Down is designed to be applied as a routine nitrogen source or an advanced sodium and bicarbonate remediation tool.

“We continue to launch new Turf Fuel products that are developed to provide exceptional performance and differentiated value to our turf customers,” said Mark Jull, Head of Turf Fuel Products’ Division, at Target Specialty Products.

Root Down is derived from a truly unique Nitrogen compound that provides multiple secondary benefits beyond nutrition,” said Steve Loveday, Turf Fuel Nutritional Product Development Manager.  “Root Down is comprised of several cutting-edge components aimed at strengthening plants from the root up, improve the turf color substantially and in addition fight sodium and bicarbonates.”

Turf Fuel’s new Root Down will be available in February 2019 and will be launched at the Golf Industry Show in San Diego, CA, February 6-7th, 2019, at Target Specialty Products’ booth number 5523.

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

This combination creates turf that is conditioned to handle stress effectively and gives the turf care professional an innovative new set of powerful solutions.

Root Down will be distributed through Target Specialty Products. 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.
