Helena Offers Rx360 Services
Helena Chemical Company continues its investment in the golf industry by offering Rx360, an innovative line of services for developing site-specific turfgrass management plans. Rx360 helps superintendents optimize their maintenance programs through a fully-integrated approach:
HyGround soil management is a turn-key service that provides georeferenced soil testing and course mapping using state-of-the-art GPS and Veris equipment. Superintendents can know the precise nutrient needs for every acre of turf with HyGround soil management. This integrated service can create customized nutrient application maps to be utilized by today’s variable-rate sprayers and spreaders. With Helena’s Rx360 field specialists, all of this can be done without the customer having to pull the first soil sample.
EXTRACTOR leaf tissue testing gives the customer the ability to frequently monitor their fertility program and know when and how the plant’s nutrient needs have changed. EXTRACTOR allows turf managers to take swift action in response to changing growing conditions in order to fine tune their fertility program on a continuous basis. When used in conjunction with HyGround soil management services, EXTRACTOR reports are georeferenced, ensuring that up-to-date nutrient and variable-rate application maps are always available.
ONPOINT record management services assists turf managers with nutrient management plans, regulatory compliance and budget planning. ONPOINT gives turf managers the ability to monitor every dollar of their operational budget through detailed maps, reports and analyses. Seamless integration with other Rx360 services means the customer will know exactly where their resources are going.
INSPEX management services use a wide range of tools to help track soil, tissue and disease diagnostic reports. With Helena’s INSPEX service, turf managers can map Poa annua infestations, disease outbreaks, annual bluegrass weevil movement or other turf pests across the entire course. Customized graphical reports make it possible to visualize an entire course from the worst performing areas to the best. Monitor seasonal and yearly trends, identify patterns of success and improve overall efficiency with INSPEX management services.
