Always dilute Genesis. We recommend a 1:20 product to water ratio. Use all of the diluted mixture within 24 hours.
Read below for instructions on how to use Genesis based on your purpose:
Commercial landscapers, golf superintendents and erosion control specialists
Apply Genesis during the early spring months (March-May, depending on where you live and what type of grass you grow) or 2 weeks before green-up. Dilute and apply 4-12 ounces of Genesis per 1,000 square feet of land. Repeat this every 28 days for a total of 3 applications.
If you’re laying new sod, dilute and apply 10-12 ounces of Genesis per 1,000 square feet of the prepared ground to increase root development.
Repeat this once more in 2 weeks.
If you’re seeding, spread your seed as you normally would. Dilute and apply 10-12 ounces of Genesis per 1,000 square feet immediately after spreading your seed.
Apply once more in 21-30 days.
Apply Genesis throughout the winter and spring months (January-May). Add ⅛ of a cup (1 fluid ounce) of Genesis per gallon of water and apply until the soil is saturated. If you’re using our sprayer, make sure the dial is set to a 1:20 product to water ratio. Repeat this every 28 days for a total of 3-4 applications.
Genesis Germination & Soil Conditioner is an all-natural turf solution that uses biologically active, organic carbon, indigenous microbes and organic acids to create the most optimal environment for turf to thrive. Whether you’re a landscaper looking to keep your customers happy with beautiful green lawns, a golf course superintendent aiming to cultivate firm, smooth, true greens, a contractor striving to win more bids by consistently delivering superior erosion control, or anyone searching for the natural solution for natural turf problems—Genesis will help you get the job done. The biostimulants in Genesis accelerate root growth through oxygenation, chelate soil nutrients to make them accessible to the plant, combat negative fungal growth, aerate and improve compacted soil, and work to unlock previous fertilizer applications.
To evaluate the effectiveness of Genesis, we consulted TRI Environmental for laboratory testing of the product in regard to germination and vegetation enhancement. In the study, a control group of grass seed planted in potting soil was germinated and grown alongside an identical group of grass seed in potting soil which had Genesis applied to it. The measurements of the Genesis experimental group were compared against both the measurements of the concurrent control and the measurements of a 2015–2018 average control. The results are shown below.
When compared to seed not treated with Genesis, seed that was given Genesis showed a 136% increase in plant height over 21 days.
On day 7, the germination rate compared to the control showed a 1550% increase in germination rate.
By day 21, the seed treated with Genesis had an average of 155% seed germination rate.
Over the 21 day period, seed given Genesis showed 250% greater plant mass area.
A University of Georgia trial found that lawns treated with Genesis show a 78% increase in green-up. In regard to soil nitrate loss, IAS Laboratories lab results prove that Genesis reduces soil nitrate loss by 38% or more. This means you get healthier soil with less fertilizer.
