Press Release: March 01, 2016

2016 marks the 5th season for the popular combination product "One & Done".

2016 marks the 5th season for the popular combination product "One & Done". In 2011 EPA granted Knox Fertilizer Company registration for this first ever fertilizer combination of Acelepryn insecticide and Dimension pre-emergent herbicide; two of the most popular control products in the Turf business today.

As is to be expected by extremely successful products, the competition is quick to follow. What sets Shaw's Turf Food apart from the rest of these followers is our "food". When you buy the Shaw's One & Done product formulated on SurfCote and XRT fertilizer technology, you are getting a unique combination of fertility performance as well as pinnacle pest and herbicide control all in one. The others can make their claims, but Knox Fertilizer and Shaw's Turf Food stands alone as the original One & Done!

About Acelepryn

Applied before or during egg-laying, but before egg-hatch, Acelepryn insecticide controls all white grub species plus key insect pests, such as annual bluegrass weevil, cutworms, caterpillars and crane flies. It has low impact on non-target organisms.

About Dimension

Dimension herbicide provides excellent preemergence and early postemergence control of all three types of crabgrass - large, smooth and southern species - when applied before crabgrass tillering. Dimension will also control or suppress more than 40 annual grass and broadleaf weeds with exceptional safety to turf grasses.

KMB Technologies Introduces Polymer Coated Urea Technology at GIS
New SurfCoteTM-N will be available in Shaw's Turf Food fertilizers in 2008

KMB Technologies is introducing a polymer coated urea technology at the Golf Industry Show (GIS) that promises to extend the nutrient release of fertilizers for up to 90 days. SurfCoteTM-N is a slow-release urea for general turf production and will be available through Knox Fertilizer distribution in the Shaw's Turf Food line for spring 2008.

The Surf® technology, or Sustained Uniform Release Fertilizer, is a patented polymer coating that represents a new era of "smart" fertilizers that will help golf course superintendents, lawn care professionals, landscaping companies, as well as specialty crop growers, improve their environmental impact as well as their bottom line.

"At a time of increased environmental awareness, SurfCote-N is the right product at the right time for our customers," says Robert Shaw, President of Knox Fertilizer Company. "With slow release technology, a consistent nutrient source is always available to the plant for optimum growth but without the time-consuming and costly inconvenience of repeat applications. SurfCote-N also reduces the opportunity for plant burn and over application and waste of nutrients.

Nearly four years in development, the Surf technology has undergone three full years of rigorous, independent field testing with Universities in south, east and Midwest, each demonstrating consistent results over diverse geography and conditions.

For Knox Fertilizer, SurfCote-N is another in a string of new products launched to the market in the past 12 months. In addition to SurfCote-N, they introduced PlatinumTM homogenous fertilizer for greens, tees and fairway applications; GroGardTM, an amino acid growth promoter; and Cutless®, a turf growth regulator that reduces the need for mowing and the volume of grass clippings.
