Dye's Valley - Nortica Application

Dye's Valley agronomy team recently made an application of Nortica.  Nortica is a biological product that we use to manage and suppress the nematode population in our greens.  Nortica has a naturally occurring active ingredient called Bacillus firmus.  Bacillus firmus is a bacteria that protects roots from nematodes.  We applied Nortica at the recommended rate for one application per year.  This application will help us to manage a variety of nematodes such as Lance, Root Knot and Sting nematodes.
