Maderas Golf Club in the San Diego area and the University of Michigan committed to work with e-par USA to improve their overall en- vironmental management through the use of the e-par Environmental Management System (EMS) for Golf. "E-par has provided us with a user-friendly platform to assess and address many of the regulatory issues that we are facing in the golf industry, especially in California," says Pat Reilly, director of agronomy for Maderas GC. EMS for Golf is an easy-to-use online platform that is compliant with the environmental management standard, ISO 14001:2004. It allows golf owners and operators to develop a comprehensive environmental management plan for the golf course, clubhouse and pro shop operations.

Profle solid metal sprinkler nozzles from Underhill Interna- tional are designed to improve irrigation distribution uniformity (DU) rates on tees and greens while saving water. Consistent DU rates (85 or better) can translate to healthier, greener turf and eliminate dry patches and donuts. The nozzles feature solid brass construction with stainless steel outlets and can be retroftted to plas- tic OEM nozzles with 1¼- and 1½-inch inlets. The replacement sets include full- circle, mid-range and close-in coverage. Profle nozzles have undergone extensive testing by the Center for Irrigation Technol- ogy, California State University-Fresno. Contact Underhill International, 866-863- 3744 (www.underhill.us).

The injectable insecticide formulation contains 2 percent abamectin, an effective insecticide commonly used to control boring and phloem-feeding insects. It is formulated for use with ornamental, residential forest, nursery, orchard and Christmas trees. The expanded label for Abacide 2 features a higher dose rate and a new group of insect species that can be controlled, including Ips engraver beetles, coniferous bark beetles, western, mountain and southern pine beetles and other boring and phloem-feeding insects that commonly target ornamental and for- est trees.

Regular use of the brush gently removes the grain from putting greens and the brush is invaluable during topdressing and aerifca- tion procedures, the company says. The brush is also used on tee and fairway turf, as well as on artifcial surfaces. Contact SGM Industries, 630-688-5192 (www. sgmindustries.com). Jenlis Inc. launched the Swift- erSifter and WeedRazer Express .

SwifterSifter will clear a lake or pond of unsightly organic material in minutes, the company says. It weighs slightly more than 8 pounds. WeedRazer, which weighs slightly more than 6 pounds, can cut through tough pond and lake vegetation such as cattails by slicing — rather than dragging — through weeds.
