GenNext’s Foundation 4-4-4 fertilizer is designed to produce healthy microbial environments in all varieties of crops, creating synergy between plant health and soil respiration. Formulated with beneficial soil microbes, Foundation fertilizers introduce biological diversity as part of a comprehensive granular nutritional treatment.
“We feel that Foundation is a unique formulation with superior efficacy and efficiency, all at low recommended rates of use. It’s a win, win for the customer and the environment,” says Frank Zamazal, Partner and Director of Agronomy at GenNext Biotech.
Derived from organically composted poultry products, GenNext’s beneficial biotechnology allows microorganisms to thrive while boosting a plant’s nutrient uptake ability. With its three-way bacteria and fungi package consisting of Bacillus, Mycorrhizae, and Trichoderma, Foundation encourages rootzone development, creating prolific pathways for essential nutrients to travel between soils and plants. Nutrients applied are also better utilized by the plant and stored for later release based on the soil’s enhanced microbial activity.
“We’re excited to continue expanding our line of innovative products serving the turf management and agricultural industries,” says Dan Brink, Marketing and New Business Development Manager at GenNext Biotech. “This is another move forward in GenNext evolving as a provider of products and solutions that are safe for our customer’s businesses and more importantly, safe for their customers.”
Rittenhouse introduces the new Perimeter Wire Machine, which can bury 600 meters (1968 feet) of wire in one hour. The Perimeter Wire Machine is designed to achieve maximum efficiency and productivity when installing robotic lawnmower or invisible dog fence wiring. It is light-weight, compact, and allows an operator to bury wire with a diameter of up to 4mm to a depth of 4-6cm.
This perimeter wire machine features a self-propelled transmission, reducing operator fatigue and allowing a constant rate of installation. The multi-position handle can tilt 180 degrees and pivot 30 degrees to the right, allowing for operation in tight corners and along narrow paths. The low-profile design helps the machine to get under hedges and branches. Additionally, it’s compact design and light weight makes for easy transport, even in the back of smaller vehicles.
The Perimeter Wire Machine will help increase efficiency and productivity for wire installers. It also allows landscape professionals to offer an additional service to their customers.

Industry globetrotter and GCI’s Senior Contributing Editor Bruce Williams offers some perspective on this year’s Golf Industry Show in San Antonio.
- Glad to see more people in seminars and events in casual business attire. Both seminars I taught had full houses and the audiences were engaged.
- While most things were a short walk I really appreciated the kind people providing info to visitors on The Riverwalk. Having walked to many a function, at night I give San Antonio a 5-star rating for visitor safety.
Shout out to GCSAA for not just the top brass but also those who work tirelessly behind the scenes and back in KS!
- Someone call Guinness! GCI’s Pat Jones set a new world record for selfies and pics at GIS. I suspect he might have to rest his thumb when he returns to Cleveland.
- What were your GIS highlights? What classes did you take and what takeaway message do you plan on incorporating into your golf course maintenance operations? What new equipment, innovations, technology or products did you learn about and perhaps may make a request for later?
- One trick of the trade I have taught for years is the follow-up superintendents and assistants should do the first day they return home. Don’t forget the power of a Thank You note. Best post-show ROI ever. So, do it now to those who served as instructors, hosting receptions and providing support for our industry.
- Bonus points if you took photos. Pictured are worth a thousand words and may help you to pre-sell at budget time. By submitting this to your employers you will find it so much easier to make the request to do it again next year.
- Nothing better than showing appreciation and letting your golf facility know that you are spending their money wisely.
BONUS NOTE: Make sure the line item in your budget reads “Education Investment” rather than “Education Expense.”
Looking forward to San Diego and next year’s show there.
If you attended the 2018 Golf Industry Show in San Antonio last week there's a good chance you may have ended up in the viewfinder of Pat Jones' iPhone.
