February 2013 News


National Seed now offers emamectin benzoate as a custom blend in BRANDT enTREE™—a new low pressure tree-injection system that prefills bottles with 25 mL of emamectin benzoate in 225 mL of water to enhance homogenous distribution of the active ingredient. Emamectin benzoate is one of the leading active ingredients used to fight against the emerald ash borer (EAB), a metallic, flatheaded, invasive borer that bores into the vascular system of ash trees.

NO plugs required
NO mixing of chemical: bottles are prefilled and ready to use
NO additional equipment: only requires a drill, 1/4'' drill bit, and hammer
Low pressure technology (~14.5 PSI) optimizes tree's natural transpiration rate
Allows trunk injection at any height (minimum 1.5 feet below lowest tree branch)
Simple application measurements: inject 1 bottle for every 5 inches DBH

ONE AP Once a Year Fertilizer

Do more with less. Add up the benefits of a single, long-lasting fertilizer application.


Imagine making just one fertilizer application a season instead of Once a Year Fertilizerfour, five or six—and save money on the labor associated with multiple trips. Even if you don't eliminate trips, you'll save the time and labor costs specifically associated with spreading fertilizer. One AP can also be formulated with Cavalcade pre-emergent herbicide for both annual broadleaf and grassy weeds helping to eliminate yet another application.


One AP uses up to 50% less total nitrogen per year, because just one application of two to three pounds of N per 1,000 square feet is all you need to keep turf lush, green and healthy for up to eight months and longer.


The exclusive controlled release of One AP eliminates growth flushes like you get from ordinary fertilizers that release nitrogen suddenly. Without those "peaks and valleys" of surge growth, you spend less time and fuel on mowing and disposal of clippings.


Whether you're dealing with demanding homeowners, valuable commercial clients or the local soccer league, they'll love the great-looking turf you provide. Lawns stay greener every day all season long.
