11.18 GOLF COURSE MANAGEMENT 81 in rotation all year to prevent turf diseases without encountering resistance issues. Now available at a $10 per gallon discount, Premion is a premix of PCNB (FRAC group 14) and tebuconazole (FRAC group 3). Premion's PCNB has been proven extremely effective against snow mold in 36 trials over a five year timeframe. It's also effective against anthracnose, dollar spot and brown patch. The fungicide's tebunconazole delivers broad spectrum control and adds another MOA for effective resistance man agement. Previa is a new formulation of chlorothalonil (FRAC group M5) that field trials have also proven is an effective and trusted performer in fungicide rotation programs. Other AMVAC products that superintendents can purchase through the early order program include Turfcide and FF III fungicides, Wisdom Flowable insecticide, Surepyc and Scepter herbicides and Nuvan Prostrips to prevent insect infestations in enclosed spaces like irrigation control boxes and maintenance sheds. After working with their distributors to purchase their desired products, superintendents should visit www.amvacanswers.com to print out a copy of the early order program rebate form. Then, simply fill out the form and return it via postal mail or email with a copy of a pur chase receipt no later than Dec. 1. Full terms and details about AMVAC's early order program, as well as recommended application rates for each product on fairways, tees and greens, are available online. Syngenta launched two new fungicides for the turf market, Posterity and Secure Action , which deliver proven, long lasting control of dollar spot as well as other common turf diseases. Posterity, the most active SDHI in the turf market, according to Syngenta, provides long lasting dollar spot control, holding strong for up to 28 days. Additionally, it delivers robust and consistent control of spring dead spot and fairy ring. It's a solid rotation partner for agronomic programs to protect cool and warm season turf. Secure Action includes a boost of acibenzolar S methyl (ASM) to further improve what the company calls "golf's leading multisite contact fungicide, Secure." Secure Action helps condition turf so that it performs at its best during the season and quickly recovers from biotic stress like dollar spot and abiotic stresses like drought and heat. The enhanced formulation pro vides increased disease control — including a 21 day interval for dollar spot control and suppression of bacterial wilt.

The Cat 903D compact wheel loader , compared with its 903C2 prede cessor, features a 25 percent increase in lifting capacity and travel speed, so custom ers are able to do more, faster. With new optional features, such as creep control, throttle lock and work tool electrical harness, the 903D has the ability to run several tools. Available with either an open or enclosed cab, the 903D operator's station features a refined ergonomic design with a new multi function joystick that provides fingertip control of the standard third function hydraulic system. Whether lifting light material into a hopper or loading heavy pallets onto a truck, the choice of standard lift or high lift boom arms increases the 903D's abil ity to work efficiently in a wide range of applications, with forks, buckets ranging in capacity from 0.8 to 1.3 yd 3 (0.6 to 1.0 m 3 ) and a selection of powered and non powered work tools. The 903D's standard auxiliary (third function) hydraulic system delivers a flow of up to 14 gpm (52 l/min.) at pressures to 3,481 psi (240 bar), producing ample hydraulic horsepower to operate numerous hydraulic work tools, such as brooms, power box rakes and grapple buckets. To facilitate the use of an expanded range of work tools, the 903D is equipped with a standard universal coupler, with an optional electrically activated coupler available for switching attachments from the cab. Auxiliary hydraulic lines with quick connectors are standard, and continuous flow allows powered tools to be controlled easily. To further enhance the 903D's versatility and productivity, new optional features allow ground speed (creep control) and engine speed (throttle lock) to be independently controlled, delivering optimal hydraulic power to work tools, while machine travel speed is automatically limited to ensure maximum tool performance.
