It’s finally here! Learn Why Everyone is “AMP’d Up” for the arrival of TCS AMP-XC™ Liquid Concentrate!

Turf Care Supply Corp. is excited to announce the release of the highly anticipated TCS AMP-XC™ Liquid Concentrate. TCS AMP-XC™ Liquid Concentrate [‘AMP-XC™ (L)’] would not have been developed without the insightful feedback of its valued users. Since AMP-XC™ technology on Hi-Calcium Lime, Gypsum and granular fertilizer proved such excellent results and received continued rave reviews a liquid concentrated formula was requested and produced. Now in a liquid concentrate, the AMP-XC™ technology is completely versatile, allowing you to tank mix it with almost anything! AMP-XC™ (L) can be tank mixed with most fertilizers, herbicides, insecticides, or applied alone to “AMP Up” the health of your turf or ornamentals; also works great on seed (See Graph s8)!

AMP-XC™(L) has proven phenomenal results in over 600 scientific studies conducted in agriculture, horticulture, and the turf sciences and is backed by highly accredited agronomists, microbiologist, and soil scientists. Public universities, private research firms, and public-private partnerships have also contributed to the collective support of how extremely beneficial one of its main components, microbe produced metabolites is to turf/plant health. Scientists have also affirmed the critical role of another AMP-XC™ (L) ingredient, humic and its positive effects on soil structure and nutrient sequestration. AMP-XC™(L) represents a ‘whole-plant’ approach to improving nutrient acquisition/transport and optimizing plant health. 

What is NEW TCS AMP-XC™ Liquid Concentrate?
TCS AMP-XC™ Liquid Concentrate is an INNOVATIVE FERTILIZER BIOCATALYST that INCREASES Nutrient Availability and IMPROVES Plant Performance to GET MORE out of Fertility Management Programs. AMP-XC™(L) is an environmentally friendly product that is safe to apply and store. AMP-XC™(L) is a powerful combination of primary & secondary metabolites, humic substances, chelated iron, and protein hydrolysates (made up of essential amino acids), naturally sourced and combined at a specific ratio to ensure excellent nutrient uptake. This revolutionary product is designed to assist your turf in meeting its nutritional needs by stimulating root growth, strength and development. Triggering the growth of these additional transport pathways, AMP-XC™ (L), increases nutrient absorption, oxygen uptake and moisture storage resulting in maximized plant health. In addition, this powerful combination of ingredients activates several beneficial biological and environmental responses in the plant and soil, resulting in a thicker, hardier root system and assuring dense and lush green turf.

How Does this Product Benefit Turf & Ornamentals?
AMP-XC™(L) increases overall root length and root hair density, significantly increasing the plant’s ability to access and transport more nutrients bound in the soil before they are lost (See Graphs s1 and s2). AMP-XC™(L) helps to use macronutrients more efficiently by taking advantage of the plant’s naturally biochemistry (See Graph s3). When used at the prescribed application rates in conjunction with a fertilization program, macronutrient inputs (N-P-K) may be reduced by up to 30% in common turf grasses, which can be a cost savings to you! AMP-XCTM(L) results in better, more well-developed root systems that help turf defend against numerous biotic stresses (i.e. fungal pathogens and herbivory), and abiotic stresses (i.e. heat, drought, salt, and prolonged winters). (See Graph s4)

How is AMP-XC™(L) different from AMP-XC™ on High-Cal Lime/Gypsum and Fertilizer?
Since AMP-XC™(L) is a liquid product, the formulation is not limited to how much material can be tacked to the finite surface of a granule carrier. This means that AMP-XC™(L) can deliver more nutrients into the ground with greater efficiency. NEW AMP-XC™(L) now offers an incredible 7% humic material, comprised mostly of biologically active humic and fulvic acids. Additionally, new AMP-XC™(L) contains a proprietary nutrient transport technology that helps plants transport nutrients to developing tissues much more quickly and effectively.

Primary and Secondary Metabolites And Plant Derived Protein Hydrolysate.

AMP-XC™ Technology: Consists of Primary and Secondary Metabolites and Protein Hydrolysates.

Primary Metabolites are a broad class of organic compounds that are essential for normal plant growth and development. From respiration and cell division to energy production and reproduction, primary metabolites drive the biochemistry of all living things. Secondary Metabolites are organic compounds that help plants cope with many biotic and abiotic stresses. These compounds increase an organism’s survivability by boosting disease resistance and discouraging herbivory (insect damage).

Protein Hydrolysates are chains of essential amino acids. Plants can metabolize protein hydrolysates to build new proteins. In turn, these proteins play a vital role in plant growth and development. Proteins are essential macromolecules that catalyze numerous biological processes. The amino acids that comprise protein hydrolysates are required at every stage of plant growth and development (ex:  photosynthesis, respiration, nutrition acquisition/utilization, stress-tolerance mechanisms, etc.). Lush, green turf comes from foliar tissue packed with chlorophyll, pigmented molecules that allow the plant to convert sunlight into useful energy. Without an abundance of amino acids to build chlorophyll molecules, plants suffer from a condition called chlorosis, most commonly visualized by the yellowing of turf blades (See Graph s5)

Chelated iron (EDTA iron) is a form of soluble iron that is readily available for absorption by plants. Iron is involved in the production of chlorophyll, a pigmented molecule inside the plant cell that makes a plant appear green. An abundance of iron results in a higher rate of chlorophyll production. Severe iron deficiencies in plants leads to chlorosis. 

Humic substances are created by the microbial degradation of biomolecules (lipids, proteins, carbohydrates, lignin) dispersed in the environment after the death of living cells. Humic substances act as all-natural biostimulants; they have a “hormone-like effect” on plant growth and metabolism. In addition to playing other roles in plant nutrient uptake, humic substances have the remarkable ability to chelate (attach and hold) positively charged ions (Mg, Ca, Fe, and other “trace minerals” cations) in the soil. Humic substances then deliver these essential micronutrients to the plant by adsorbing (attaching) to the root hairs so that they may be transported into the plant for use (See Graph s6). Humic substances help aerate compacted soils such as clay, allowing for enhanced water penetration and retention. Soils rich in humics promote vigorous root growth and development. Adding humic substances to sandy soils results in increased water retention and decreased nutrient leaching (See Graph s7).


AMP-XC™(L) Brings Tons of Benefits to Applicators and the End User
Whether you’re a lawn care operator (LCO), a groundskeeper for a golf course/athletic field, or a homeowner, AMP-XC™(L) will keep your turf greener, longer, and fortify your turf to withstand the toughest environmental stresses. LCO customers will be happy to put their name on a yard that maintains its vitality, particularly during the hot summer months when neighboring yards begin to dry out and enter dormancy. LCOs will also benefit from an additional revenue stream while reducing their number of call-backs and increasing overall customer retention. Groundkeepers will experience turf with a bolstered root system that is better able to withstand mechanical agitation and recovers faster from physical damage (golf clubs, cleats, etc.). And, AMP-XC™(L) fits seamlessly into most turf management programs.

If it’s not AMP’d up, it’s not healthy. Make the most out of your Fertilizer Management Program by maximizing nutrient uptake and optimizing plant health. For that lush green appearance all season long, add AMP-XC™ (L) to your application program today!
