Air-O-Lator Corporation's Enterprise II is an energy and cost-efficient option for aerating and mixing. The unit yields increased airflow, pumpage rate, and thrust and is easy to install. In water treatment, an aspirating mixer must introduce and mix air into the water at a high volume in order to metabolize present aerobic microorganisms. Enterprise II, manufactured in Kansas City, Mo., uses a high volume, axial flow, propeller pump design that operates within a close tolerance throat. The water that is propelled from the throat and forced through a specially designed nozzle that more than doubles the velocity of the fluid pumped. With the force, the liquid and air converge at the nozzle and air delivery tube, discharging a homogenous mix of rapidly moving aerated liquid. Air-O-Lator’s products are used in irrigation, wastewater treatment, storm water management, fish farming and ranching. For more information, see a representative or visit www.airolator.com.
Insect control made easier all season long
Bayer HealthCare LLC Animal Health Division, Shawnee, Kan., has announced the introduction of a broad-spectrum premise spray—Annihilator Polyzone.
The product provides livestock producers with long-term control of crawling, flying and wood-infesting pests.
Bayer’s proprietary technology allows the product to withstand aggressive surfaces, weather and wash-off conditions for up to 90 days. The residual enables users to maintain control with fewer applications, which can result in reduced labor. The proprietary technology within Annihilator Polyzone forms a protective layer between the active ingredient particles and the applied area adhering them to the surface. As the polyzone crystals erode over time, the active ingredient, deltamethrin, is slowly released, leading to effective control for up to 90 days. The residual gives users the ability to apply the product in many areas, as well as hard-to-spray areas. For more information, contact a product distributor or visit www.bayerlivestock.com.
Formulation offers top bioavailability for improved control
Nufarm, of Alsip, Ill., has launched ChampION++ , a fungicide/bactericide that controls key fungal and other diseases in a range of high-value crops such as citrus, walnuts, grapes, tomatoes and peppers. ChampION++ is a new dry formulation (dispersible granule) of copper that features consistently smaller particles and other unique formulation attributes to provide more thorough coverage—and better disease control—with less environmental loading.
The formulation of ChampION++ fungicide is evident in the product’s basic characteristics, company officials said. The smaller particle size has another important benefit: it means that producers can apply a significantly lower rate of copper but still get effective disease control. Copper has been used to combat disease in high-value fruit and vegetable crops since the late 1880s, when the “Bordeaux mixture” of copper sulfate and lime was used in French vineyards to protect grapes from downy mildew. Copper fungicides have evolved over the decades but remain a key disease management tool for producers.
In addition, ChampION++ will comply with the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) National Organic Program (NOP) and be certified by the Organic Materials Review Institution (OMRI) as safe for use in certified organic production operations. ChampION++ will be available for the 2014 growing season.
