POMPANO BEACH, Fla.  Vertex Aquatic Solutions announced the launch of Oxygenation Saturation Technology (OST) to eliminate lake anoxia while preserving stratification. The side-stream saturation technology manages anoxia by pumping low dissolved oxygen (DO) water from a lake, canal or lagoon, saturate it with oxygen and return the water.

A characteristic of eutrophic lakes and reservoirs is oxygen demand in the bottom waters that exceeds available oxygen stored in the bottom waters during stratification.  As a result, bottom waters remain anoxic for a significant portion of the year leading to nutrient recycling, harmful algae blooms, habitat loss, fish kills, odors and decline in water clarity. This method of OST of adding oxygen is quantifiable, allowing for any specified concentration of dissolved oxygen to be maintained based on water depth, temperature and salinity.

“At Vertex, we are always looking into innovation and new technologies to bring in new ways and enhanced solutions to our customers for their current needs,” said David Helt, president at Target Specialty Products. “We are pleased to announce that Vertex Aquatic Solutions along with their partner Gantzer Water LLC, has developed a new patent-pending Oxygenation Saturation Technology, based on side-stream saturation technology.”

“Vertex is excited to launch the release of the Oxygen Saturation Technology,” said Patrick Goodwin, aquatic resource scientist for Vertex Aquatic Solutions. “This breakthrough technology is going to change the way we manage anoxia and improve lake water quality drastically.”

The new patented Vertex OST is equipped with a water pump specified for either freshwater or saltwater, oxygen dissolution chambers, bubble capturing system (BCS) to off gas unwanted nitrogen and plumbing. The system has been designed to deliver the full capacity of oxygen generated at the lowest possible electrical cost. This high oxygen water is injected via an energy-dissipating header (EDH) into the bottom waters of a lake or canal, where it will move through natural dispersion throughout the entire density layer. Injected oxygen behaves like coloring dye where it moves throughout the density layer shortly after injection. There are no bubbles made and no mixing to disturb bottom sediments or compromise the natural thermal structure of a lake. This system allows the oxygen concentration in water and at the sediment interface to be far greater than what traditional aeration could provide.

I’m sure this will get mixed reviews from my LS brethren, but hey, it is what it is lol!

I’ve been thinking about doing this for a while now, and today when I saw a 2019 61 V-ride for sale at the Dealer, I had to inquire. The short of it is (assuming my guy I’ve worked with for 8 years is telling the truth) the mower was traded in by a fella who trades every two years because he likes his stuff under warranty. It’s got the Kawi 801 engine. I traded my ’16 Cheetah 61 inch with the 31 Kaw…

Has anyone used the aeration attachment for the walker? I bought one in fall of 2020 and have just now gotten a chance to use it. It seems to be in great condition but i have been having a issue getting it to attach to my machine. The driveshaft that came on it is a few inches shorter and isnt long enough to attach. i have a 2021 B27, 2020 T27, and 2019 T25. I tried taking the driveshaft off of the decks of the mowers where it attaches to the gearbox and the diameter is about 1/8" too wide…

Matt Caruso, president and founder of Michigan-based Decra-Scape, calls COVID-19 a blessing and a curse. On one hand, people were staying home and spending more money on their yards than ever before, but it also caused an already tight labor market to wither further.

When the pandemic hit in March 2020, the company was on in uphill swing.

“For us, the second quarter is always where the rubber meets the road,” he says. “We came out of the gate strong, and everything was great. We had the biggest backlog in company history and then COVID completely shut us down. We were left scrambling and trying to find ways to get it all done.”

Being shut down for so long was unfathomable to Caruso, who says he spent the time actively trying to lobby for the state’s reopening.

“We work outside in the elements and were able to safely distance ourselves, but through state mandates and the governor’s orders, we were down for six weeks,” Caruso says.

Without much income coming in, the company was forced to make a difficult decision, but they ultimately bounced back.

“For a short period, we had to lay everybody off and we don’t like to do that ever,” Caruso says. “Once we came back, we were rocking and rolling and had plenty of work.”

Despite the tough time, Caruso says his team never stopped selling and was able to regain momentum quickly and carry it through the winter, where normally things slow down. However, this created another issue.

“It was kind of a blessing and a curse,” he says. “We couldn’t get everything in the ground because we lost so much time, which screwed our schedule up, but also it allowed us to roll that work into the coming season. Which felt good at the time because if something else happened we had work on the books. But next thing you know, we had so much work coming in we didn’t know how we’d get it all done.”

Matt Caruso started Decra-scape 31 years ago.

All this new work was met with a few to see it through. And a year after the pandemic started, Caruso says he’s still having difficulties filling positions. “You’ve got all these stimulus packages and unemployment benefits and everything else, and it’s very difficult to get people to come to work,” he says. “We’re having no problem selling work, and we have a tremendous influx of leads…so we’re really trying to get creative with hiring.”

Caruso says he’s started doing apprenticeship and mentorship programs with area schools as a way to reach a new audience.

“We’ve always been proactive about hiring, but never to a point to prepare for something like this,” he says. “I think it really opened our eyes to how important that is.”

Another strategy of Decra-scape’s is to start utilizing H-2B workers again.

“We’re hopeful we can get into the H-2B mix,” Caruso says. “We used it years and years ago and used it for quite a long time…but are team became almost solely reliant on H-2B and then they capped it and we didn’t get them, so we had to start all over.”

Now, with President Biden allowing for 22,000 additional season workers, Caruso is optimistic.

“Our number’s never been called,” he says. “With the increase of 22,000, I’m hopeful.”

Even through all the challenges, Caruso says his company is prospering and he expects the growth to continue. Thanks in large part to more people staying at home.

“People are creating outdoor oases right now in their backyards,” he says. “Since they’re working at home, they want to create a nice, quaint space they can work at outside. People are really just opening up their pocketbooks.”

Caruso says he expects this trend to continue for the time being.

“From what I see I don’t see it ending too soon,” he says. “I think there’s still a lot of fear to travel. I could see it lasting a little longer. When people are comfortable and confident in what’s happening things will go back to normal.”

Decra-scape also does a lot of commercial hardscape work – specifically specialized paver work. And they’ve got a fun project on the horizon at Champion Motor Speedway in Pontiac, Michigan.

“This year we are doing the M1 Concourse,” Caruso says. “It’s a racetrack and instead of calling them condominiums they have these garage-ominiums. It’s a really cool place…we’re doing a 46,000-square foot paver application. We’re weaving patterns, colors and things along those lines… It’ll be over an acre of pavers.”

The raceway will be hosting An International Auto Show event in September. Caruso says he expects the project to begin in June and wrap up by mid-August.

Caruso says these kinds of projects, where his team gets to be creative, are his favorite. “We try to push toward the specialty applications, and we don’t really like the cookie-cutter applications,” he says.

Pursell expands production with new facility

SYLACAUGA, Ala. – Pursell has reached terms to build a state-of-the-art production facility in Savannah, Georgia, that will expand the reach of its coating technologies. Strategically located near two rail lines and the country’s No. 1 port for agricultural exports, the Savannah plant will produce controlled-release fertilizers (CRF) for the turf, ornamental, specialty and broadacre markets.

The new facility, to be located at SeaGate Terminals, will complement Pursell’s existing production plant in Sylacauga, Alabama, with a significant increase in capacity and improved access to raw materials.

Combining coating materials and proprietary processing techniques with a modular production facility design, Pursell is tackling the struggle of mis-, under- and overapplied nutrients that can negatively impact crop performance, return on investment and the environment. The company’s controlled-release technology enables fertilizer retailers to supply nutrient blends that meet the precise needs of a crop as it matures through the growing season.

“Our primary focus at Pursell is to provide growers with the most robust portfolio of controlled-release products available, empowering them with prescriptive, sustainable and profitable growing solutions,” said Nick Adamchak, Pursell CEO. “Built with innovations like custom release longevities, encapsulated micronutrient mixes and the industry’s largest range of coated substrates, our CRF products create a level of control unlike any other on the market today. We’re looking forward to serving even more fertilizer retailers through the addition of our Savannah plant.”

Unlike other enhanced efficiency fertilizers (EEF), Pursell fertilizers – including PurKote (for use in turf and ornamental), PurYield (for use in broadacre) and PurForm (for use in specialty) – are coated with a thin, pliable and durable membrane that enables higher nutrient content, more consistent and predictable release rates, and the flexibility to perform in all climates. Additionally, Pursell technology allows for the inclusion of micronutrients and temperature sensitive additives, such as biologicals, growth enhancers and soil health promoters, to optimize nutrient synchronization and plant uptake.

 The technology’s ability to help producers increase crop yields while reducing environmental impact to air, land and water led to its recent advancement in the Next Gen Fertilizer Innovations Challenge, a joint partnership and competition from the Environmental Protection Agency and U.S. Department of Agriculture focused on agricultural sustainability.

 “Studies have repeatedly proven the value of our products,” Adamchak said. “For example, extensive physical properties testing has demonstrated that Pursell-coated nitrogen and phosphate-based fertilizers are better able to withstand impact and excessive handling that occurs in distribution, handling and application of the fertilizer, mitigating the risk of catastrophic nutrient release.”

Compared to uncoated products, Pursell coated products can reduce leaching by 69% for nitrogen-based fertilizers and 82% for phosphate-based fertilizers, according to trials1,2. Pursell coated products can also dramatically reduce ammonia volatilization. Whereas uncoated urea can lose up to 40% ammonia to volatilization, Pursell products lose only 5% ammonia. Multiple years of testing demonstrate that Pursell coated urea consistently reduced ammonia losses by at least 95%.

The Savannah plant is expected to be operational by year end.

“As evidenced by the surge in demand that we are witnessing for controlled-release products, customers are hungry for more efficient nutrient delivery that improves crop yields while preserving soil health and water quality,” Adamchak said. “In that respect, we are just getting started.”
