4Salt®, the salt tolerant grass seed from DLF introduced a few years ago, is nominated for the Dutch Innovationprice Sportfacilities 2019.
Together with three other companies in this playing field, DLF represents the only seed company. Two years ago the ProNitro® fertilizer coating was nominated for the same award. The price will be awarded on March 14 during the event for Sportfacilities in the Netherlands.
We know that sport fields, lawns, golf sites etc. have problems in saline soils or in salty areas. It doesn't matter where the salt comes from: the soil, water supply, or wind-blown sea spray, if there's too much salt, ordinary grass won't grow to its best. To solve this problem, DLF offers 4salt® mixtures, that will perform with or without salinity problems. Read more
The science behind the the 4salt® concept is a result of continuous testing and selection in our R&D facilities. By exposing germplasm to rising levels of salt in the growth substrate, we have identified significant differences between species and varieties. The chart shows the important differences between species. The 4Salt® brand is used to identify varieties and mixtures optimized for saline conditions, based on our R&D results.
