Enhanced efficiency

The enhanced efficiency fertilizers (EEFs) in our portfolio have been specially developed to provide the nutrition that turfgrass and plants need to thrive. Each product has its own unique characteristics and valued advantages. By creating customized fertilizer programs that incorporate these advanced technologies, superintendents can optimize nutrient efficiency and minimize nitrogen (N) loss.

DURATION CR® controlled-release fertilizer and POLYON® controlled-release fertilizer are polymer-coated products that consistently and precisely release nutrients based primarily on soil temperature, making nutrients available when plants need them most. By utilizing reacted and polymer-coated sulfur-coated urea (PCSCU) technologies, XCU® slow-release fertilizer and NUTRALENE® slow-release fertilizer gradually release N into the soil, extending its availability to the plant over a longer period of time. And, through the use of urease and nitrification inhibitors, UMAXX® stabilized nitrogen fertilizer enhances N availability to turfgrass and plants while reducing losses due to leaching, denitrification, runoff or volatilization.

Making a difference

Superintendents are under pres¬sure to maintain their courses in the face of rising costs, tightening budgets and environmental pres¬sures. Our EEFs make this task a little easier. With a need for few¬er applications, superintendents save time and fuel while freeing crews for other projects. Mean¬while, our consistent N deliv¬ery helps turfgrass take up more nutrients while reducing the amount lost to the environment.
