" I find that the biological package of Soil & Plant Tonic and Biogrow along with cultural practices like dusting, regular needle tinning and deep watering has allowed me to reduce my pesticide applications enormously.
The disease pressure is minimal and the surfaces are improving all the time.
I believe that adding beneficial microbes to the profile has helped me achieve these results and I am able to continue to improve the rest of the golf course"
Leura Golf Club. Matt Robinson. Course Manager
We were on the fertiliser/fungicide merry-go-round, it was not working. I knew there had to be something better. Luckily I networked with another greenkeeper at a golf day, and Tonic was ordered the next day. It immediately unlocked the soil and the greens never looked better or back. Feeding the soil not the plant continues to improve the profile. Coupled with SAP tests I can tweak inputs keeping the greens lean and mean. We are able to apply products in any weather and know the greens are protected from disease. While moving away from so much time consuming and unpopular mechanical aeration. The Soil and Plant Tonic has been used on all areas of the course, benefitting members and staff with course quality and safety. It has simplified the monthly program and freed up budgets for other needed course improvements. Looking at worldwide green keeping developments I’m pleased I’ve got Soilsmart in my back yard.

" I have been greenkeeping for many years now and I have never come across a liquid fertiliser like Maintain Foliar. There has been no spike in growth but within 2 days after application the greens looked amazing. I have started using on Tee`s also and now looking at using on our sports field" March 2021
Antill Park Golf Club Andrew Steele
Antill Park golf club has been working with Soilsmart over the past 2 years and have achieved great results with the soil and plant tonic program.
Over time we have reduced fertiliser and pesticide inputs and records show a 50% reduction in fungicide applications.
Situated on the outskirts of South Western Sydney, Antill Park experiences harsh summers with minimal irrigation and poor quality water. Since implementing the soil and plant tonic into our greens maintenence program we have noticed improved water holding from our soil, a healthier root system and a stress tolerant putting surface.
With minimal staff and budget, improving the soil structure and biology of our greens has been an economical and rewarding decision.
Also the Soilsmart guys are bloody good blokes too !!
