Since 1995, the soil conditioner TerraCottem (TC) has been tested intensively in many locations in the P.R. China. It was successfully used for reforestation, horticulture, agriculture, landscaping, sports turf and some other specific applications, like growing flowering plants in containers and pots.
A nice test case was the one at the Ministry of Forestry (Hepingli Dongjie, Beijing) were magnificent lawns were installed in front of the main entrance.
These are brilliantly green for the major part of the year and there is no need for intensive irrigation in the hottest and driest periods, thanks to the water and fertilizer stocking soil conditioner TC mixed with the substrate at a rate of 100 g TC per square meter.
Years after the installation of these lawns in the city center of Beijing, the overall landscaping effect of these lawns is still perfect. Technicians confirm the important water and fertilizer saving role of the TC, even after many years.
