Turf and Ornamentals

Turf and Ornamentals

As the drive to improve the aesthetics of lawns, landscapes and various other landscaped areas grows, the turf and ornamental industry continues to grow. The cultivation and demand of turf and ornamental crops consistently grows along with the housing market with nurseries expanding production to meet ornamental demand. Multiple studies have confirmed the positive effects of turf and ornamental cultivation and maintenance on the environment as well as the positive effects these hobbies can have on mental health. Studies have shown that well maintained turf and landscaping can increase home value by 5-15%.

Ornamentals

The range of plants utilized in landscaping areas is vast and unique. As more and more homes, businesses, and common areas install and maintain green spaces, the need for nursery and ornamental plant production grows as well. Nurseries are a location where ornamental plants are grown, transplanted, grafted, or marketed for sale. These unique locations require unique solutions to key challenges as well.

Residual Pesticide Applications

Residual Pesticide Applications

Environmental pests come in a wide range of forms, from diseases, to insects, to invasive weeds. The methods for controlling these pests vary as well. Some solutions require a pesticide to remain active and in contact with the leaf surface for an extended period of time for best results. Nu-Film-17® is an extender, spreader, sticker adjuvant that is uniquely formulated to be combined with pesticides requiring residual activity on the leaf surface. These include contact or ingestion-based pesticides that have direct activity on the target pests.

Nu-Film-17®

Nu-Film-17® is a superior deposition, sticker, and extender adjuvant with non-ionic properties based on proprietary Miller technology containing Pinolene.

Systemic Pesticide Applications

Systemic Pesticide Applications

Plant health can be negatively impacted by pests in the environment in several different ways. Each of these potential pests also require their own unique solution for control. Exit® has been purposefully formulated to be combined with pesticides that depend upon rapid uptake and translocation of the active ingredient. Pesticides such as those with systemic or translaminar activity as well as those with hormonal or plant growth regulator effects are particularly well suited for tank mixing with Exit®. The unique ability to increase the speed at which translocation occurs is what defines Exit®.

Exit®

Exit® is an activator-adjuvant comprising a blend of premium-quality esterified seed oil with a proprietary surfactant and humectant system.

Ornamental Moisture Stress and Desiccation

Ornamental Moisture Stress and Desiccation

Moisture stress poses several serious threats to plant tissue that is not adapted to survive it for long periods of time. Vapor Gard® can assist in the mitigation of some moisture stress effects such as wind desiccation and drought stress in ornamental crops. Once applied, Vapor Gard forms a thin, microscopic film over the plant surface. This helps to lock in moisture and assists in the prevention of desiccation effects on sensitive plant tissue. Can be especially beneficial in helping to minimize stress when shipping ornamental plant material long distances or in helping prevent winter desiccation.

Vapor Gard®

Vapor Gard® is a based product for use on specialty crops as a full-coverage spray to reduce water evapotranspiration.

Turf

Whether it is the meticulous care and attention given to a home lawn or to the memories shared at a professional sports turf area, turf is a part of our daily lives. Studies have shown that positive effects can be seen from time spent outdoors working on plant-based hobbies such as yard work and landscaping. As passion grows for these areas, so do the challenges and opportunities to find solutions.

Pre-Emergent Herbicide Applications

Pre-Emergent Herbicide Applications

Pre-emergent applications of herbicides are widely utilized in an effort to cut down on potential weed populations. These weeds can rob turf settings of key nutrients and potential quality. Once a pre-emergent herbicide is applied to the soil, the environment naturally begins to break that chemistry down in a plethora of ways. Sustain® is recommended as a tank mix to help reduce some of these environmental effects. Environmental effects such as UV degradation and leaching of the herbicide can be reduced, thereby helping to potentially increase the effectiveness of pre-emergent herbicides applied.

Sustain®

Sustain® is a new, unique class of adjuvant with non-ionic properties based on Miller’s proprietary Pinolene® technology.
