Agrium Announces Alliance with Dow and Syngenta, Sponsorship of Hispanic Landscape Group

Popular controlled-release fertilizer now paired with two of the leading crabgrass preventers; sponsorship of NHLA shows support for growing Hispanic-American workforce.

Agrium Advanced Technologies (AAT) announced the addition of Spread it & Forget it Controlled-Release Fertilizer with Barricade Pre-Emergent Herbicide from Syngenta, in addition to Spread it & Forget it with Dimension Specialty Herbicide from Dow.

This move brings together three of the Green Industry’s pre-eminent product manufacturers, offering end-users a single-application fertilizer solution impregnated with leading pre-emergent crabgrass herbicide brands.

The resulting new product allows turf professionals to fertilize once up to every six months, while getting industry-leading pre-emergent crabgrass control. The level of efficiency also allows lawn care operators to perform extra tasks on-site, or to finish up on a job site and move to the next site more quickly.

“We’re very pleased to be recognized as a Supporting Member of the NHLA,” said Andrew Mittag, president of AAT. “We’re proud to support the growing, dynamic and diverse Hispanic-American workforce in today’s landscape industry, sponsoring a variety of educational and workshop opportunities to continue the NHLA’s continuing education mandate.”
