Koch Enhanced Efficiency Fertilizers Set Superintendents And Distributors Up For Success
Chris Hedberg Saves His Course Time and Money with UMAXX® Stabilized Nitrogen Fertilizer
“We usually make three applications, and that will get us a full season.”
Chris Hedberg | The Ridge at Castle Pines | Denver, CO
Chris Hedberg is superintendent of The Ridge at Castle Pines just outside of Denver, CO. The is a little higher than Denver, and the terrain is a little drier, too. They have to be as as possible, and hope that they get a few storms during the year.
Chris also has to of 9 to 10 employees. There’s a wide spectrum of day-to-day tasks, and Chris is constantly searching for ways to be more efficient. “We try to do a lot with a little,” he says. “We still want to provide the same conditions or better than the members-only courses around us.”
For six years, Chris has used to keep fairways and roughs green throughout his course’s busy season. It takes his crew about a full day to spread across . But once applied, UMAXX provides nutritional uptake to his course for months on end. “Three of our guys can spend a day fertilizing and we get 2-3 months out of it.”
“Overall, not having to apply fertilizer every month saves us time and money, because we don’t have to pay for fuel and labor. Last year, our weather conditions were such that we were able to stretch our time between UMAXX applications to almost 12 weeks.”
