Yellow Jacket's® starch-based super-absorbent has an incredible capacity, holding up to 600 times its own weight in water. Trials conducted by the University of New Mexico showcase that Yellow Jacket® enhanced seed establishes faster than raw seed and requires less water. This accelerated and robust turf establishment provides superior natural competition against weeds and diseases. As a result, users experience improved turf quality, reduced establishment costs, and quicker utilization of newly seeded areas. Yellow Jacket® seed enhancement is particularly beneficial in less than optimal weather conditions or when conditions for establishment are challenging.
