Aqua Aid Europe BV is bringing an exclusive range of patented Makro Organics’ turf grass, soil and water treatment products to BTME 2019 in Red Hall, Stand 238.
South African company, Makro Organics, currently offer their products in seven international regions and 17 countries with Aqua Aid Europe becoming their exclusive distributor them in the United Kingdom and Europe.
Makro Organics are pioneers in environmental technology and offer alternatives to conventional chemical treatments and perfectly match the ethos of Aqua Aid Europe whose products fit into natural programmes.
Both companies recognise the impending shift away from chemicals in sports turf and the challenges that bring, along with weather factors, and guarantee to resolve common issues faced in the industry on a daily basis.
Owner and Managing Director of Aqua Aid Europe, Hans de Kort, is excited to be launching these products to the UK and European turf industry at BTME 2019 in Harrogate.
He said: “As an industry, there are clear demands for an environmentally conscious approach and Marko Organics can help greenkeepers achieve that.
“In Holland, all sports turf will be chemical free in 2020 and there will inevitably be similar initiatives throughout Europe. This is causing greenkeepers and groundsmen to source new solutions to common issues and as product suppliers, it is our job to offer these solutions.
“I strongly believe we have what is needed by the industry going forward and I am very proud to add such a successful range of products to our catalogue, and I look forward to introducing everyone to them at the show.”
The range of products tackles common issues in turf, soil and water. OxyTurf provides a solution to black layer and compaction while increasing percolation and compaction by introducing low levels of oxygen as part of a biological process.
OxyFlow provides a solution for pipe and irrigation systems, cleaning and flushing pipelines and canals of organic matter, scale and calcification as well as unblocking nozzles and filters. No control measures are required when releasing OxyFlow.
OxyCure is applied to lakes & ponds, effluent streams and process water systems to reduce eutrophication that results in unnatural algae blooms and rapid aquatic plant expansion. It reduces filter clogging and accumulation in pipes and systems and has its results confirmed by world-renowned water consultants.
This range of products joins the already successful VerdeCal G, WormPower Turf, PBS-150, OARS HS and PS and Aquifer in offering greenkeepers an environmentally conscious approach that won’t be affected by law changes.
