"It's consistent, with no surge growth or flushes, we save time and labor."

"POLYON is the meat and potatoes of fertilizers. It delivers consistency and longevity."
Tom Leahy, Superintendent
Sleep Hollow Country Club, Scarborugh, New York
"I use POLYON for two main reasons: I want the best turf conditions and I have a limited budget. With POLYON, I know I'm reducing total nutrient load per year, which saves me money in my annual budget. Since we've started using POLYON K products, I've seen better turf quality and recovery during periods of stress than ever before, both on greens and fairways. The real bonus was where we used leftover product in our high-traffic fescue/bluegrass roughs. We saw a major improvement in health and resilience of these areas after using the POLYON sulfate of potash product."
Brian Vincel, CGCS
Spring Creek Golf Club
"I just trust the POLYON product line. With POLYON N I know that I don't get flush releases of nutrients that can either volatilize and escape into the atmosphere or leach through the soil. POLYON K provides the same assurance with a very consistent steady feed while minimizing losses through leaching. Ultimately, it is a product that's going to be available for the plant when it needs it."
Mark Langner, Director of Agronomy

"Like most municipalities, we're on a tight maintenance budget and anything we can do to manage our costs is a good thing. I save a lot of money by using XCU. With its extra coating, XCU releases slowly so the grass can absorb it a bit at a time. Instead of four weeks of control you typically get from the other sulfur-coated products, I get at least eight to 10 weeks with XCU - that's a month of extra feeding for basically the same cost. And, I save on labor big time."
City of Plantation Parks & Recreation Department

"I've used XCU for a few years now for commercial and sports turf applications. Before XCU, I tried other sulfur coated urea fertilizers, but results were hit or miss. With XCU, I get consistency. The product is less likely to be clumpy, so it spreads more evenly. And, I get longevity out of XCU that keeps the grass green and growing without major spikes."
GreenSource Landscape & Sports Turf Inc.
Fort Lauderdale, FL
(applied to St. Augustine and Bermuda grass)
"It's important that we use the best quality fertilizers with the best price and reduce potential for runoff or un-useable nitrate. XCU helps us make sure the turf can use the nutrients that we put down, so the environment won't be compromised. And, XCU is an affordable slow-release fertilizer that exceeds our franchisees' expectations.
Quality is never compromised with Polyon. Because of the way Polyon is made, the chances of catastrophic release are non-existent. Polyon's release is consistent and it gives us uniformity in coloring, thickness and application. It delivers exceptional quality for our franchisees and their customers' lawns."
