  • Allows for optimized labor allocation
    • Less time fertilizing provides opportunities to visit more properties per day or offer additional revenue-generating services
    • Less bag handling reduces risk of injuries
  • Applying controlled-release, slow-release and stabilized nitrogen enhanced efficiency fertilizers (EEFs), nitrogen (N) use can be reduced by up to 40% when compared to conventional fertilizers like urea and ammonium sulfate
    • Saves money and helps to efficiently manage the use of this valued fertilizer resource
    • Responsible N utilization helps to differentiate the lawn or landscape professional from the competition and provides a key selling advantage when talking with current or potential customers
