For example, Cyanobacteria are thought to be a key player in building Earth's early atmosphere. They are also the first known organism to fix nitrogen and produce sugars using photosynthesis. While, Lactobacillus promote the decomposition of organic matter, suppress disease and perform growth regulatory effects on fungi, yeast and other bacteria.

Synthetic turf fields? I think NOT! #GrassCanTakeMore

"There are 12,000 synthetic turf fields across America," says Jared Minnick, Founder of Growing Innovations, a natural turfgrass consultancy firm. "At some point over the course of turf history, we gave up on grass. We believed that natural grass fields just couldn't take the pressure and stress that athletic fields are expected to maintan." At the end of the day, it's not the field's fault; it's the management's fault. The field can't take more... because it isn't maintained the right way.

"If you do what you've always done, you'll get the results you've always gotten," reminds Jared. "You can't maintain your field today, the same way you did in the 80's. And yet, that's exactly what we, field managers are doing!"

Have you ever heard of Ethylene?

Have you ever noticed that when you go to purchase bananas from the grocery store, they are always perfectly ripe and ready for consumption? That’s because of a little known plant hormone known as Ethylene. 

Ethylene is just one example of how plant hormones play a crucial role in plant life. Auxins and Gibberellins are two common plant hormones when it comes to growth and orientation, positively affecting cellular growth and differentiation. Other naturally occuring plant hormones include: abscisic acid and cytokinins – which direct germination and fruiting when environmental conditions are right.
