  • What are the pigments in turf?

    The term turf pigments refers to either the pigments or colourings found in grasses and other turf plants or turf colourants used to mask turf and improve its colour. The main pigments found in turf are chlorophyll, carotenoids, anthocyanins and flavonoids.
    • Chlorophyll is the pigment that gives grass its green colour and is responsible for photosynthesis, the process by which plants convert sunlight into energy. It is found in plant cells and has magnesium as its central atom.
    • Carotenoids are pigments that give turf a yellow or orange hue. These are responsible for absorbing excess light energy and protecting the plant from damage. They are also known to have antioxidant properties.
    • Anthocyanins give turf a red or purple colour and are produced by plants in response to environmental stress, such as high light intensity or drought.
    • Flavonoids are pigments are responsible for a range of colors, such as red, purple or blue, and are also known for their antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.
    The presence and concentration of these pigments can vary depending on the species of grass and the environment it is grown in.
  • What are turf colourants and pigments?

    A Turf colourant or turf paint or turf dye is a product that is used to change or enhance the colour of turfgrass. It is typically a liquid which you apply to the turf through a sprayer. The colourant is usually made of organic or inorganic pigments that are safe for use on turf. It is designed to be long-lasting, weather-resistant, and easy to apply.
