But, I can't find any studies that prove their claims.

They like to show me a lot of corn and soybean pictures, but they have no turf or lawn data and no scientific research.
For a better understanding of soil microbiology and how SumaGreen-type products influence turf systems, watch this video:
It's from Dr. David Zuberer, a soil microbiologist from Texas A&M. He lends a lot of insight into all the claims that these new microbial products are making.
Very Interesting and informative. A soil microbiologist of 36 yrs saying much of what we hear and see with many of these products claims is "hogwash."
Things that make ya go...Hmmm.
