Primo Maxx Plant Growth Regulator

Product Overview

Primo Maxx Plant Growth Regulator Helps Turf Withstand Stress

Primo Maxx® plant growth regulator promotes denser, healthier turf that is better able to withstand a variety of stresses including heat, drought, diseases and traffic. It slows the production of gibberellic acid, a plant hormone that promotes cell elongation. Vertical shoot growth is slowed, while lateral and below-ground growth of rhizomes, stolons, tillers and roots is stimulated.

Key Features

  • Useful in the management of difficult-to-mow areas and can be used to minimize the need for edging turfgrass
