You know Holganix Bio 800+ does amazing things for your turf and plants, but did you know it boosts the positive affects of aeration and overseeding? Here are 5 things you didn’t know about using Holganix Bio 800+ during aeration and overseeding.
1. Wicked fast seed germination
Increase the likelihood of germination with ingredients found in Holganix Bio 800+ that promote seed germination like Humic and Fulvic Acids and Kelp extract. Then, support their growth and maturation with additional ingredients found in Holganix like nitrogen-fixing bacteria. These hard working microorganisms help convert nitrogen locked in the soil and air and convert it to a readily available form for your seedlings.
2. It’s all about the roots!
When it comes to Holganix Bio 800+, we are always focused on roots. The Endo and Ecto Mycorrhizae, Humic and Fulvic Acids and Trichoderma in Holganix Bio 800+ help your seedlings stimulate deeper thicker roots systems, allowing the turf to establish itself faster.
For example, Endo and Ecto Myccorhizae will penetrate or grow in association with plant roots, helping the roots mine for minerals, nutrients and moisture deep within the soil.

3. Water, water, everywhere
Natural wetting agents present in Holganix help seedlings make better use of available water. Why does this occur? The natural wetting agents slow moisture, spreading it evenly and deeper in the soil. This makes water available to young roots and encourages longer root growth.
4. Increase seed longevity
Because of the ingredients within Holganix Bio 800+, the plant increases to the tiller stage or maturity faster. Ultimately, by increasing the rate at which the plant reaches maturity, you are extending the plants longevity.
5. Remediating soil
When you aerate you churn the soil to increase biological activity in the soil; Holganix Bio 800+ turbo charges the biology, strengthening your overall soil ecosystem.
Because Holganix Bio 800+ is a probiotic it contains living beneficial microorganisms that contribute to the population counts and diversity of the biology present within your soil. Holganix Bio 800+ also has prebiotic ingredients that feed the soil biology, boosting the soil food web.
