Megalex®

Builds vigorous greens for optimal course playability

MEGALEX is a iquid foliar formulation that helps build strong, green, vibrant turf for opitmal course playability. It is an excellent tool for improving turf growth and appearance in both sun and low light shade areas.
Key Benefits of MEGALEX
  • Stable source of nitrogen that resists soil tie up
  • Formulation stays suspended in tank mix for even, no fuss applications
  • Optimizes turf vibrance and vigor
  • May help with green speed management
  • Effective in both sun and shade areas
  • Compatible with most fertilizers, pesticides and adjuvants
Field Trial: Ohio State University, 2011. Nagel.

In this trial, sequential applications of MEGALEX were evaluated to determine if it would improve turfgrass quality and performance in low light shade conditions.

MEGALEX was applied with Primo® MAXX (trinexipac-ethyl) a commonly used PGR used to shorten internodes, slow shoot growth, and improve turfgrass quality – particularly under environmental stress.

The combination of MEGALEX (7.3 fl oz/1000 sq ft) and Primo MAXX (0.125 fl oz/1000 sq ft) applied to creeping bentgrass every 14 days consistently improved turfgrass color and quality. It is recommended that this tank mix be used sequentially, for a minimum of three (3) applications, prior to the onset of stress to improve turfgrass performance under shade stress.

Application Rates and Use

MEGALEX may be used on turf, and horticultural and ornamental crops to help promote rapid greening and robust growth. On turf (athletic fields, lawns, greens, tees, fairways and other grassy areas): Mix 3 – 9 fl oz per 1000 sq ft in sufficient water for thorough coverage (typically 2.5 gallons). Initiate spraying prior to seasonal stress cycles. Apply at least twice monthly and allow at least 6 hours before/after irrigation event for maximum benefits. Do not apply near water, storm drains, or drainage ditches; or if heavy rain is expected.

Shake well before dispensing. One five gallon case treats 1.6 acres. See label for full application instructions and information. Compatible with most adjuvants, fertilizers and pesticides. Jar test when in doubt.
