Great for your turf and the planet

. MATCHPLAY superior turf care

MATCHPLAY® is a range of innovative, professional grade Australian designed and made products. They’ve been proven across Australia’s most iconic turf spaces including Commonwealth Golf Club, Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG) and Parliament House. Developed in partnership with Living Turf the range is constantly being refined across product and deployment. And because better local thinking goes in, you get better results out.

. Innovation born of necessity

Living Turf employs extensive local expertise to develop the MATCHPLAY range of products to match the needs of Australian turf managers. We are proud of the fact that these products are expertly formulated and quality controlled to provide reliable performance, every time.

These qualities are especially evident in MATCHPLAY Superior Liquids – an innovative range of organic, biologically enhanced liquid products that are all locally developed and formulated. They contain soil stable nutrients and nitrogen in a protein form that will not burn turf and is proven to be less susceptible to leaching. Nutrients, stimulants and beneficial microbes are delivered to the plant and soil in one stable, easy-to-use package. The range contains VM3 and VAM technology to optimise nutrition uptake, soil microbe populations and specific plant stimulation.

Case studies demonstrate the uplift MATCHPLAY Superior Liquids bring to turf root health and quality in sand profiles. Living Turf’s collaboration with leading Australian scientists, means we can now measure soil microbial populations and their diversity. By establishing population data, before and after programmed applications, the development of soil microbe populations can be directly linked to turf root vigour, density and depth.

“Amazingly, these results are achieved using less applied nutrient and, in most cases, a reduced cost of inputs (fertiliser + chemical). Which is great news for the environment.”
