Improve Root Health

Roots are the central component to plant life. Healthy roots yield healthy plants. While fertilizer can be an adequate tool to increase root health it doesn’t pinpoint a specific area of the plant.

In order to specifically target the roots, WinField offers Gravity® SL PGS – a unique blend of plant growth hormones precisely designed to stimulate root growth in new seedlings, transplants and existing plants.
In a recent study, plots treated with Gravity® SL PGS and various plant growth regulators did not significantly increase clippings, showing that Gravity® SL PGS will not overcome these regulators. Gravity® SL PGS is able to produce slightly greater clippings but not significantly greater clippings.

In another study, plots were treated with Gravity® SL PGS and Trinexapac-ethy. While the overall root mass of untreated bremudagrass declined over the summer, roots treated with Gravity® SL PGS and Trinexapac-ethyl had greater roots.

These plot studies show the application benefits of Gravity® SL PGS – increasing plant root mass while not overpowering plant growth regulators. This product is also highly concentrated to provide you with low application rates.
