“At Green Velvet, we were able to harvest Kentucky Bluegrass elds (without netting) in just 9 months. Without netting, this is about as good as it can be done in the Midwest. This allowed us to till the eld in June and July, and re-seed the elds in August, making sod production now a 12 mo. cycle instead of the average 18 mo. With demand on the rise, this will have a signicant impact on our sod production business. Not only are we able to bring higher quality sod to market sooner, I anticipate we’ll be able to produce 3 sod cycles in 3 years, the same amount of time we would have produced 2 sod cycles without APEX-10. The product far exceeded my expectations.”

“At Medina Sod Farm we applied PrimeraOne APEX-10 to 70 acres of our Kentucky Bluegrass elds. Our typical growth cycle before APEX-10 was 18-24 months; now we can turn our elds in 10-12 months. Additionally, we noticed the turfgrass utilized fertilizer more eciently, and we were able to reduce the amount of irrigation. We also saw increased stress tolerance and recovery, especially in the peat soil portion of our elds, giving us peace of mind. We were so pleased with the results we are increasing APEX-10's application to 100 acres this year.”

On a 65 acre eld on a sod farm in Eastern Maryland, sod would not harvest. It was just too tender. After purchasing 50 gallons of APEX-10, it was applied at a rate of 1 gallon per acre. Within just a few weeks, they were able to harvest over 95% of the eld where they had applied the APEX-10. Where they had applied a competitor’s product, the sod still would not lift. The farmer was very pleased and purchased another 80 gallons to treat a newly seeded eld for better spring wakeup and quicker harvest next year.
“We have been using APEX-10 since the fall of 2011 on the district's sports fields. APEX-10 has added root mass to the rye, fescue and bluegrass cultivars like nothing we have ever seen. Since applying APEX-10 we have not had a divot or a tear out from an athlete’s stopping or cutting. This durability makes for safer fields which can be more frequently used and more easily maintained due to the turf's ability to recover.”

“We sprayed APEX-10 right after sod installation was complete and we were thrilled that within 10 days the sod had knitted. Even with thin cut sod, it was not able to be lifted. Additionally, the sod grew at a very fast pace making the sod replacement process a seamless transition. This gave us peace of mind that the field will be ready and established for our home opener in April.”

“We’ve been using APEX-10 since August 2012, and soil tests indicate we have better uptake of nutrients now. We first applied APEX-10 after a considerably stressful stretch of games. We aerated, over seeded with rye grass and applied APEX-10. Within seven days the turf had recovered and was looking and playing great just in time for our 2012 playo run."

“APEX-10 in conjunction with Griggs products and proper agronomic practices, has enabled a Tifeagle green that was completely gone to recover and fill. APEX-10 has had a very positive effect on producing runners, and the time frame in which the green filled in was quick. Last fall, it was basically gone, and now I have about 90% coverage and should be close to filled in by August. The rooting on the greens is healthier and deeper than I have seen in the eighteen months I’ve been here. One great product to have in the arsenal!”

"We immediately saw positive results with APEX-10. We started cutting back our water usage, which ended up being the biggest plus for us because by the end of the season we had recorded the hottest, driest summer on record. Our golfers always asked us how we kept our greens and tees in great shape through that heat and stress. APEX-10 was the only change we made from the year before, and the improvement in the turf was remarkable. Being a public golf course, money is always a concern, but APEX-10 easily fit into our budget and by the end of the season we were ahead of the game."

At a high end golf course, hand watering hot spots during summer stress was taking up time and budgets. With the addition of APEX-10, hand watering of tees virtually disappeared and the superintendent has added APEX-10 into injection for fairways this season.

“APEX-10 improved our plant loss and lost opportunity revenue ratio by almost 50%. We highly recommend the use of this product on all plants, trees and turf.”

“We worked with one of our contractors who had a perennial problem area in a customer's yard. After the third application, we had a total turnaround. My customer earned a lifelong customer, and we earned even more of our contractor's trust by providing a product that worked exceptionally well in spite of the heat and drought conditions in our area."

A lawncare company tank mixed APEX-10 with other maintenance products and applied trial strips with and without APEX-10 for a direct comparison. Even six (6) weeks later, the company could still tell a positive dierence in the strips in which APEX-10 was applied.
