We got the Primo Maxx from a company called 'Living Turf' in
Sydney (Marrickville). Primo Maxx is in Liquid form and needs to
be diluted considerably before spraying.
Living Turf is a specialist turf management organisation who can
provide technical advice and a full range of turf products
(Fertilisers, Herbicides, fungicides, insecticides etc). They can
also do soil testing to check whether the chemical composition of
the soil is suitable for whatever turf is being used. From the
soil testing they will recommend what fertiliser and in what
quantities it should be applied to correct any deficiencies. We
have been getting our soil tested every 2 to 3 years.
The Tech Rep for our area is Miles Payne and you can get him on
0407 100 909

Can anyone tell me where you get this stuff? how much does it
is it a liquid or powder?
Sounds like a good thing, I have talked to our green keeper
and he would like to know more about it.
I looked at the web site and when I clicked on contact us I
got an American phone number. Is there some where in Australia

Hi Croquet Greenkeepers,
A couple of our colleague golf club greenkeepers have suggested
a growth regulator called Primo Maxx to our lawns during the
growing season. According to the manufacturer, (Syngenta) Primo
slows vertical shoot growth while lateral and below ground
enhanced. The benefits claimed are a denser, healthier turf that
better able to withstand a variety of stresses including heat,
diseases and traffic. It almost sounds too good to be true. See:
If the claimed benefits are achieved for a croquet lawn the use
Maxx should mean less frequent mowing or, at least, the line
should last longer. It also should reduce lawn wear, particular
the hoops (where we tend to get rabbit runs) and at the GC
At Jamberoo we intend to give this product a try but we would be
interested in whether any other clubs have used it and, if so,
claimed benefits been achieved in practice on a croquet lawn?
