Maintenance Tips for Cooler Temperature

Updated: May 8, 2023

Enhancing Turfgrass Colour

As temperatures decrease and daylight hours are reduced, turf physiology slows down and the growth rate decreases. Photosynthesis also slows down. This leads to a reduction in chlorophyll production and a change in the colour of the turf.

During periods of cooler temperatures, turfgrass will lose its natural green colour. However, the use of liquid fertilisers and pigments can be employed to enhance the colour of turfgrass during these conditions.


Here are some amazing products to help you maintain the bright green colour of your turf even in cooler temperatures:
















Ambient Plus:

Turf Colour Enhancer


One approach to maintaining turf colour is to use a pigment, such as Ambient Plus, that is specifically designed for turfgrass. Ambient Plus is applied as a spray and will greatly enhance the colour of the turfgrass.

Ambient Plus is a highly effective dark green pigment concentrate designed to enhance turf colour. Can be tank mixed with most spray applications that, in addition to turf colour enhancement, also provide a clear visual spray pattern indicator for the applicator.


· A highly effective dark green pigment concentrate designed to enhance turf colour.

· The pigment contained in Ambient® Plus contains a darker green colour than the standard products.

· Versatile formulation can be tank mixed with a variety of spray applications and utilised on all types of turf.

Liquid Fertilisers Containing Iron


Another strategy is to apply liquid fertilisers containing iron to the turfgrass. Iron is an important nutrient for turfgrass, and it can help to enhance colour and promote healthy growth. When specialty iron formulations are applied as a foliar spray during cool temperatures a greater plant response is achieved due to improved precision and enhanced nutrient uptake.

Extreme green 16

6% Fe & 4% Mn

Extreme Green 16 is an iron and manganese nutritional supplement that is used to help promote dark green colour in the turf and foliage of plants. The 4:1 ratio of Fe: Mn is a desirable ratio to help drive a dark green colour in plants.

Extreme Green products are sourced from a very pure and soluble source of ferrous sulphate. This soluble form of iron is the plant-available Ferrous Iron (Fe++) which promotes a dark green colour when applied to plants. Great effort goes into handling and packaging this unique, extremely soluble iron material while is it still fresh from the source. The extreme solubility of the product makes going into a solution quick and easy.
