Suståne Natural Fertilizer, Inc.

Suståne Natural Fertilizer, Inc.

Sustane natural Fertiliser is the world’s leading manufacturer-exporter of all natural and organic fertilisers and soil builders. Sustane believe in the science of sustainability, which is why we’ve commissioned nearly 600 independent research studies in nearly 30 years to create the best possible products for Turfgrass, with proven benefits on pre and post plant establishment, quality, disease suppression and environmental impact trials.

Due to the nature and length (6 months) of our unique aerobic composting process, our products are rich in stable humus, dense with all natural and organic nutrients, and biologically rich vital to encouraging and enhancing soil microbiology and a healthy eco system. Healthy soils produce and maintain healthy plants and are alive with rich biological diversity. The microbiology is critical to so many soil and plant functions in a balanced and thriving ecosystem.

Sustane has a low biological oxygen demand (BOD) due to the six-month aerobic composting process, a high carbon to nitrogen ratio and a low salt index, which all help to enhance the “species richness diversity” (SRD) in all growing systems.

Plant establishment accelerates with total plant nutrition from Sustane. A complete package containing both quick and slow release nitrogen (SRN), all primary, secondary and tertiary plant nutrients are chelated with rich humic and microbial substances found in Sustane product.

We export our product worldwide through a network of distribution, and for more information on research, product and distribution, please either visit our website www.sustane.com or email russellr@sustane.com

 


Foley United

Foley United

Foley United LLC designs and manufactures a comprehensive group of products that grind and sharpen mower blades and related turf maintenance products used by golf courses, sports and parks facilities, and commercial landscapers. Products include reel blade grinders/sharpeners, bed knife sharpeners, rotary blade sharpeners, and related accessories and supporting products.

The company leads the world in innovations that improve efficiency, quality, and safety for the turf manager, delivering performance and extending the life span of mowers and related equipment. As an acknowledged leader in grinding technology and best practices designed to maintain mowing equipment to optimal OEM specification, Foley United strongly believe in education and keeping abreast of the latest developments, covering safety, performance and productivity tips; all to raise knowledge levels while reducing costs for course operators.

Educating greenkeepers and groundsmen on the benefits of grinding to OEM specifications is a long-standing mission for the company so making it important to acknowledge what relief grinding does for a reel.

Benefits of Relief Grinding:-

By removing metal from the trailing edge of the blade, it forms a relief angle, which reduces the contact area of the cutting edges, resulting in less friction, longer wear life.
Typically, when a new mower is delivered, the reels will be a perfect cylindrical shape. Over time, the blade naturally loses shape, and the sharp edge it arrives with becomes flat and dull, often meaning the reel is no longer a perfect cylinder from end to end. This is referred to as ‘coning’ and a natural point for grinding to take place.

The decision then sits between touch-up spin grinding, or relief grinding. If there is sufficient relief still on the reel, then a quick touch-up is fine but, once more than 50% of the relief has gone, it is advised to relief grind again and remove any coning. Failure to remove the coning will eventually be seen in an uneven cut appearance of your turf.

In-house grinding is a financially sound investment for FEGGA members achievable through Foley United’s range of products which can be upgraded over time while always delivering a top-quality grinding experience. Foley United appreciates that budgets vary across the wide range of courses and has added a range of six new grinders which offer a broad range of options to suit all levels of expectation.

Capillary Concrete™

Capillary Concrete™

Capillary Concrete™ is a patented pending Sports-base drainage and hydrating material. It is strong, environmentally sound and easy to mix and install. It has the ability to drain enormous amounts of water and still keep a minimum level of moisture by capillary action.

Capillary Concrete™ is the only sports base material that can remove water and replenish moisture at the same time, essential in presenting the best sports surfaces.

Capillary Concrete™ is a cement-based polymer material that can solve all drainage and moisture problems in many different sports, such as golf, equestrian sports, sports fields etc. It has a superior life-time and strength value, and it is the most sustainable construction material for sports drainage and moisture control available.

Through the unique characteristics of Capillary Concrete™, various grass surfaces can be constructed with a built-in water storage and distribution system. On golf tees for instance, initial testing suggests a 90% water reduction rate in irrigation compared to traditionally constructed areas. The possibilities are many with the major financial and environmental advantages of this product.

Capillary Concrete™ is very durable, environmentally safe and easy to install.

It has been installed at many different courses on five different continents with excellent results in all climates.
It drains perfectly and maintains the bunker sand at an ideal moisture level. And all this at a very reasonable price. This simply solves all bunker problems!
Capillary Concrete™ is the only sports base that moves water in two directions and is strong enough to form an edge.

This is the secret behind Capillary Concrete’s unique ability to keep bunkers in great shape regardless of weather conditions. Capillary Concrete™ will virtually eliminate wash-outs, soil contamination, plugged ball lies and other bunker maintenance problems.

Capillary Concrete bunkers were first installed in 2010 in Scandinavia in a very tough climate with severe winter ground freezing conditions. The product was invented and developed by Martin Sternberg, CGCS, as a means of finally resolving all bunker problems in even the most severe golf course locations. Today, thousands of bunkers have been built or renovated with Capillary Concrete all across the world, from Australia, Japan, Africa to the USA and Europe. Capillary Concrete™ is available throughout the world, in every major golf market through local Distributors. .
Capillary Concrete is an international company and is part-owned by Annika Sörenstam, Martin Sternberg and a group of other investors.

The Board of Directors of Capillary Concrete consists of some very experienced turf professionals such as Stig Persson, former Chairman of the Swedish Greenkeepers Association, FEGGA (European Greenkeepers Assoc.), Ted Fist, former Head Course Manager from Chicago, Illinois, Martin Sternberg, CGCS, and a very competent administrative team in offices in Celebration, Florida and Gothenburg, Sweden.

Club Car

Club Car

Club Car’s historic association with the game of golf dates back to 1962, when an Augusta-based businessman named Bill Stevens purchased Landreath Machine, and, with only a small number of employees, began producing the nation’s first golf cars. During the 1970s, golf car production continued to increase and, in 1978, the company extended its product line, introducing its first mass produced turf utility vehicles, which were initially golf cars that had a utility box fitted on the back. As Club Car continued to grow, the company quickly established itself as a market leader.
