Standard Golf is entering a new product realm.
The Iowa-based manufacturer of golf course accessories announced Sept. 1 that it has introduced GreenActivator, a liquid fertilizer containing humic and fulvic acids with low doses of nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium, to the golf market.
Golf led the way during the summer of COVID-19 and Standard Golf’s agility was instrumental in helping courses remain open. The Cup-Saver Ball Retriever, Flexi-Putt, Ball Elevator, In-Ground Trash Can and Safety Cup were among the products Standard Golf introduced in 2020.
Being based in Iowa, Standard Golf is familiar with farming and agricultural products. In 1910, when Standard Golf began, many of its products were ag-centric such as steel farm gates, cistern covers, wagon tongues and the automatic hog waterer. Those products led to the creation of the Classic Ball Washer.
With this same mantra in mind, Standard Golf partnered with Ag Logic, another Iowa-based manufacturer, to offer GreenActivator to the golf course industry. GreenActivator treats soil and turf to create better playing conditions. As a cost-effective soil conditioner, GreenActivator builds turf with increased drought resistance, enhanced roots, quicker turf repair, increased blade width and resiliency with quick absorption.
Located in Conrad, Iowa, Ag Logic has been distributing and manufacturing their patented humic and fulvic acid to the agriculture and sports turf industries for more than 13 years. Since 2009, the company has been conducting its own research and collaborating with third-party researchers to determine the effectiveness of humic and fulvic acids on various types of crops and turf.
