How does Algaefix Algaecide work;

Quaternary Ammonium Compound (QAC), the active ingredient in Algaefix Algaecide works primarily by membrane disruption. QAC does this due to its strong positive charge. Algae, mould and bacteria possess a negative charge. QAC binds and attaches to the algae, mould or bacteria and causes the cytoplasmic membrane to leak, creating so much damage to the cells that eventually the algae, mould or bacteria die.

How to control algae in turf management;

Algae are primitive green plants. They can be a problem in turfgrass when surface conditions are overly wet. They tend to occur in low, shaded, or compacted areas. Algae form a greenish to black scum on the soil or in thin turf. As this blackish scum dries, it appears as a crust that later cracks. Turfgrass plants may become chlorotic (yellowed), weak, and eventually die as a result of Algae competition. 

Culturally, algal scums can be managed in turf by employing the following methods:

  • Improving surface and subsurface drainage
  • Avoiding frequent irrigation, especially at night
  • Aerification of compacted areas
  • Maintaining proper pH and nutritional levels
  • Increasing mowing height where possible and practical
  • Improving light penetration to the turf sward
  • Using more shade tolerant grasses where shade is the major cause of the problem.

Algae in greenhouse & nurseries production;

Algae is found in nearly every greenhouse, nursery and sometimes even landscapes where ornamentals are produced.  Algae grows wherever we have supplied it with excess water and food. It can be found on pots, potting media surfaces, soil, benches, walkways and even all over plant leaves and stems.  Algae are a nuisance, a worker health risk (slipping), a challenge to plant nutrition as they use water and fertiliser meant for plant growth, and an irrigation challenge because a dense algal mat can make water penetration impossible.  They are also food for some insect pests including fungus gnats.
