It also offers an effective and preventative disease control option against Pythium blight (Pythium aphanider- matum) and anthracnose (Colletotrichum cereal). This highly concentrated formula works through a dual mode of action, both preventing oxidative phosphorylation — the metabolic pathway through which cells use enzymes to oxidize nutrients — and stimulating a plant's natural defense against pathogen attack. ReLoad is approved for and proven effective on a wide variety of crops, including but not limited to asparagus, curcubits, grapes, hops, leafy vegetables, legume vegetables, tuberous and corm vegetables, as well as indoor and outdoor ornamentals and turf. It is a valuable tool in fungus prevention for golf course superintendents and growers. Colorado, Georgia, Idaho, Maine, North Dakota, Nevada, South Carolina, Washington and Wisconsin have approved registration for ReLoad, with more states expected.

The Wedgle is the only method of tree trunk injection that does not require a drilled hole, Arbor- Systems says. WedgeCheks are used when making tree injections and are inserted in the tree with the SpeedChek Punch for easier use and quicker operation. The Wedgle injection tip is inserted through the WedgeChek to ensure that the chemical is placed deep into the active areas, where it can be absorbed easily by the tree. ArborSystems chemicals are used with their Direct-Inject Tree Injection System as an injection into the flare or base of the tree to ensure even distribution through the tree's vascular system. Chemicals are delivered quickly and effectively at a known dose rate. Also, there is no mixing in the field, waiting for uptake of chemicals, guarding during draining process or need for power, pumps or return trips by ap- plicators. ArborSystems Quick-Connect Injection Tips are designed to treat all types of trees, including hardwoods, conifers and palms. ArborSystems provides a variety of tree injection systems and insecticides, fungicides, antibiotics, micronutrients and tree growth regulator designed to meet a broad range of tree care needs.
