What is Foliar-Pak Armament Concentrate?

Armament Concentrate is a high-molecular-weight amino acid polymer that works to improve nutrient uptake by increasing the availability of nutrients in the soil—important for creating healthy turf and bringing relief to compromised turf. Its high-molecular-weight structure holds a lot of negative charges that complex positively charged metals in the nutrients, helping keep those nutrients in a solution.

When tank-mixed with compatible products, applications result in:

  • deeper, stronger roots
  • longer-lasting color
  • improved stress, insect, and disease tolerance

How Does Armament Technology Work in Armament Concentrate?

Imagine the nutrients in the soil have a lock on them. They’re there, but they can’t be used, so applicators have to rely solely on applied nutrients. Armament technology is the key that unlocks them. When you apply Armament technology, your nutrient applications are up to 30% more efficient thanks to the use of the nutrients already in the soil.

Armament technology’s negatively charged long-chain carbon structures help free up nutrients from things that keep them precipitated, like high pH, bicarbonate, and phosphorus levels. Low pH and particles of clay can also keep nutrients out of reach. When those nutrients are freed up, turf is able to obtain better nutrition, which means it requires less nitrogen and stays greener for longer.

Plus, Armament technology protects nutrients in spray tanks, making them more available for plant uptake and can reduce inputs. It also helps stimulate root hair growth, which helps enhance the turf’s absorption capabilities.

Applying Armament Concentrate

When applying Armament Concentrate, it is essential to follow proper application rates and guidelines. Always consult the product label and SDS for the full scope. As mentioned, keep in mind that Armament Concentrate can be tank-mixed with other compatible products.

The formula of Armament technology in Armament Concentrate, as implied by the name, is concentrated, meaning it works great with low-volume equipment like spreader-sprayers. On turfgrass, be sure to water in Armament Concentrate as soon as you can—whether that be through irrigation or waiting until rain is predicted to fall.

Application Rates

  • For cool-season turf, apply 0.25 to 0.5 fluid ounces per thousand square feet. 
  • For warm-season turf, up the application rate to 0.35 to 0.7 fluid ounces per thousand square feet. 
  • When applying to ornamentals, mix 16 to 32 fluid ounces in 100 gallons of water. Spray until the point of runoff or drench into the soil.
