Contec DG 0-0-12 Mag-Tec w/ 24% Mg

Manufacturer: Andersons

Contec DG is The Andersons’ line of premium dispersible granular nutrients.

Combining premium turf nutrients and our patented dispersing granule technology, Contec DG is designed to optimize granular applied turf nutrition.

Enhanced Nutrient Distribution

Patented Dispersing Granule Technology

Upon contact with water, each granule disperses into thousands of micro particles that move through the turf canopy into the root zone. Dispersibility eliminates problems with mower pick-up, sticky residue on equipment and product run-off.

Optimized Nutrition

No Mower Damage or Residual Shells
Contec DG technology does not rely on a physical coating to release nutrients. Coated nutrients are very susceptible to damage from mowers, resulting in premature nutrient release.

No Mower Pickup
Contec DG readily disperses into the turf canopy following irrigation, eliminating mower pickup and delivering 100% of the applied nutrients to the turf. Mower pickup of conventional fertilizers is reported to be as high as 15-25%. This loss of nutrition impacts turf health and actually increases the cost of using conventional fertilizers.

No Particle Movement
Contec DG disperses quickly and completely when watered, moving through the turf canopy and into the soil. In a heavy rain or over-irrigation, conventional fertilizers may float and be carried off the intended application area, or be deposited in low lying areas where they may cause damage.

L-Amino Acids

Benefits of The Andersons Amino Acids
Under stressful conditions such as excessive heat or drought, it is difficult for turf plants to produce essential amino acid compounds. Foliar applications of L-amino acids translocate through the leaf and help the plant maintain healthy growth during stressful conditions. The Andersons amino acids:

  • Contain L-amino acids, which are the most biologically active, and are preferred by the plant. When applied in early Spring, L-amino acids help turf tolerate later season stress.
  • Improve tolerance to water stress during hot and dry conditions
  • Improve foliar nutrient uptake
  • Reduce stress induced plant aging for extended health and quality

Improved Playing Conditions

Less Interruption of Play
Contec DG requires less watering to disperse the nutrient granules, allowing for less downtime and a drier and firmer playing surface.

No Sticky Residue

Contec DG melts into the turf canopy. The result is no sticky fertilizer residue which can accumulate on shoes, balls and equipment.
