Soil-Water Intelligence

Bially Formulators is now offering an e-commerce soil testing service, Bially Soil Water Intelligence. Unlike traditional soil testing labs that focus on measuring soil texture, salinity, nutrient levels, etc., this service helps you understand your soil-water interactions — the very way water wets and moves through your soil. This vital information will help you optimize water and energy-use efficiency, minimize costly runoff, and ensure that your fertilizer and pest control applications reach their intended target.

Lock Nitrogen In

The latest turf nutrition solution added to the LebanonTurf lineup is LebanonTurf Stabilized Nitrogen (LSN). It features urease inhibitor technology that significantly reduces volatilization by stopping urease enzymes from converting the urea into ammonia gas. This new technology can reduce application rates by up to 30 percent, and inhibits the volatilization of nitrogen for up to 10 days, making LSN an efficient and cost-effective nutrition program. Research shows that as much as 30 percent of urea nitrogen can be lost to the atmosphere if not watered in within seven days, but unlike straight urea, LSN does not need to be watered in immediately after application.

California Courses Have a New Tool to Fight Weeds

Environmental Science, a division of Bayer CropScience LP, announced that Tribute Total is approved for use in California.

Approved for use in bermudagrass and zoysiagrass, it is effective against 55 weeds, including dallisgrass, goosegrass and clumpy rye. After application, the product is readily absorbed by the foliage and carried to the site of action in the growing points of the susceptible weed.
