CBX solves poor transition
Properties that have used CBX through the over seed season have proven to have fewer problems related to the transition back to the dormant variety. The same buffering effect that aids over seeded grass resist the toxins released by the bermuda, aids the bermuda in resisting the toxins released by the over seed variety. CBX also has the ability to release nutrients making plenty available for multiple varieties simultaneously. The rye grass steadily declines as the weather warms while the bermuda is already coming out of its dormancy in spite of the cooler weather creating an almost seamless transition.
Conversely, on a typical property that has used ordinary methods during over seed, the bermuda is treated with growth inhibitors and then scalped down to the rhizomes exposing the soil. Rye grass or a different variety is seeded over the top and then watered and fed until it grows in. Because of the generally early period in which this activity takes place, the bermuda grass is still active because of the warm weather and so responds by growing and either choking out the young rye seedlings or inhibiting their growth through the release of enzymes designed to aid the bermuda's survival. This situation results in poor seed germination and, by the time the cold comes and the bermuda goes fully dormant, spotty coverage of the over seeded variety.
As the spring draws near many properties transition back to bermuda through the use of various growth inhibitors, shortening heights and withholding water and nutrients. Unfortunately, this can sometimes have the effect of damaging the bermuda grass resulting in periods of poor quality turf while the bermuda recovers.
CBX can reduce these negative effects by allowing a more complete over seed and a less stressful transition, or at the very least, a shorter recovery time.
CBX stimulates activity amongst a broad range of biological life. When applied to the soil, CBX encourages natural recycling of organic matter, resulting in micro-tunnels similar to the activities of earthworms, just on a microscopic level. These micro-tunnels create a natural aerification process, allowing space for air and water to penetrate solving the root cause of Black layer, poor drainage.
Poor Transition may also be due to black layer, compaction, disease pressure, hydrophobic conditions, low organic matter, low SRD, poor aerification and thatch.
