ROSWELL, Ga. – SiteOne Landscape Supply introduced LESCO NOS, LESCO CarbonPRO-L and LESCO CarbonPro-G.
“The new LESCO fertilizers maximize water and nutrient efficiency through varying delivery mechanisms so contractors can find products that align with their nutrition and greening goals,” said John Gertz, VP Category Management – Agronomics at SiteOne Landscape Supply. “Part of our promise to customers is that your SiteOne representative is part of your team, helping you to achieve your business growing goals. These new turf maintenance products from LESCO are part of how we deliver on that promise to get results, even in challenging environments like fertilizer blackout periods.”
The new products offer enhanced-efficiency fertilization programs and innovative supplementary products that improve the soil and optimize future fertilizer applications.
LESCO NOS, or Nitrogen Optimization System, is the industry’s first fully incorporated DCD stabilized nitrogen fertilizer that prevents nitrogen loss. The technology in LESCO NOS slows the rate at which nitrogen is lost to environmental leaching and volatilization. By keeping nitrogen in an ammonium form longer, the plant efficiently uses nitrogen when needed.
CarbonPro-L with MobilEX
CarbonPro-L with MobilEX is a nutrient optimizing system that harnesses the power of plant-microbe interactions and organic soil sciences to maximize plant health and performance. The proprietary MobilEX mobility technology, supports cell wall stability by mobilizing calcium ions from organelle storage and increases nutrient transport by binding minerals to facilitate movement throughout the plant’s vascular tissues. The multi-solution product can be tank mixed with most non-pesticide liquid applications. Research shows, CarbonPro-L with MobilEX promoted more root and shoot growth using 30-percent less nitrogen
than positive and negative controls in Tall Fescue.
Now in granular form, CarbonPro-G is a microbial and carbon-based plant health nutrient optimizer that can be applied with a standard broadcast spreader to turf and landscape plantings. The multi-solution product uses soil conditioning to deepen and strengthens roots, help with turf recovery, increase nutrient uptake and efficiency, assist with seed establishment and reduce operation costs spent treating turf stress. Its bio-charged carbon structure holds water, making it available when needed by the plant. When applied, CarbonPro-G, regulates soil pH balance to be more neutral and is designed to repair damaged turf from winter salt damage.
