Prime Source, a division of Albaugh, LLC. is announcing the launch of AzoxyBio Fungicide. The product has received EPA registration and will be available for purchase in Spring 2022.

New AzoxyBio Fungicide offers efficacy and convenience in a formulation that blends a biological with a traditional fungicide, AzoxyBio delivers distinctive disease control and promotes plant health.

AzoxyBio features a combination of azoxystrobin plus an extract of the biofungicide, Reynoutria sachalinensis, for dual modes of action from Groups 11 and P5. In addition to systemic, broad spectrum, preventive control of key turf and ornamental diseases, the AzoxyBio Fungicide complex provides a biological boost to plants’ immune systems for sound disease resistance management.

“AzoxyBio delivers a major boost to added value in the management of turf and ornamental diseases, while promoting improved plant health and stress tolerance,” said Steve Jedrzejek, product development manager for Prime Source. “Moreover, a proprietary performance additive ensures excellent suspension when AzoxyBio is mixed with liquid fertilizers, other control products and in hard water, including lower volume spray solutions. We are proud to bring AzoxyBio to the professional turf and ornamental markets.”

The company has launched a business management software exclusively on a mobile app.

Concepted and developed based on customer feedback that nearly 70% of customers expressed the need for solutions to manage their businesses on the go, Landscape Management Network (LMN) is introducing LMN Gro.

Designed to help up-and-coming landscape and snow business operators improve productivity, maximize efficiency and stay organized as they grow their business, LMN Gro is the next generation solution from LMN to help busy contractors drive operational excellence across their businesses.

The platform combines the functionality of LMN’s Pro software in an app-based solution available only on the Apple and Google Play stores, helping companies and operators keep everything organized on their phones or tablets so they can stay on top of all jobs, costs, crews and customers.

Contractors can do everything from the mobile solution including managing their customers, tracking jobs, developing and distributing estimates, managing employee schedules and time tracking and processing invoicing to customers.

“LMN Gro is designed for those contractors who are growing their business but can’t find time to sit in an office and process estimates, invoices, and more,” said Mark Bradley, CEO, LMN. “We’ve heard from so many customers that business management software can be daunting. From set up to training to the time needed in the office, the demands to run an enterprise software can pull small business owners out of the field for hours, negatively impacting their ability to service customers. We’ve taken important elements of LMN Pro and optimized everything into LMN Gro to make their lives easier.”

LMN Gro also simplifies operations for contractors in that it does not require an implementation process. Instead, business owners will have immediate access to online tutorials, training video and a library of articles to help set up their accounts.

The app is supported by LMN’s customer support team, who are available through both in-app chat and in-person to answer questions.

LMN Gro is also designed based on customer feedback, with nearly 70% of respondents to a company survey asking for solutions to successfully manage all aspects of their business from a mobile device.

“We take our customer’s feedback to heart in our product roadmap,” Bradley said. “It’s through daily interaction with them and understanding this industry for the past 30 years that helps us develop solutions to do our part to help. We’re really excited to bring LMN Gro to life.”

LMN Gro is now available in both the Apple and Google Play stores for $99 per month, and comes with a free 30-day trial.

The plant procurement service is now available in California, Georgia, North Carolina and South Carolina.

Landscape material marketplace GoMaterials has expanded its wholesale plant procurement service into four U.S states. Following their launch in Texas in 2021, the free service will now be available to professional landscapers across California, Georgia, North Carolina and South Carolina. Businesses leveraging the service will be able to source wholesale materials from hundreds of vetted suppliers across the U.S. and Canada.

Launched in 2016, GoMaterials has helped hundreds of landscapers across Florida, Texas, New York, New Jersey, as well as Quebec, and Ontario, in Canada to source millions of dollars’ worth of softscape materials.

“2021 was a particularly hard year for the industry with plant shortages across the U.S., and unexpected events such as the Texas freeze. It really helped highlight the value we can bring to the landscaping supply chain,” said GoMaterials’ CEO Marc Elliot. “It’s a proud feeling to know that even in a tough year GoMaterials helped source over 600,000 plant units and helped save hundreds of man hours for our customers.’”

GoMaterials’ expansion to the four states also comes at a time when the demand for landscaping is rising. However, labor shortages are restraining many landscaping businesses from fully benefiting from this growth opportunity. Outsourcing procurement to GoMaterials could free up time spent in coordination and enable landscaping businesses to utilize their workforce more efficiently.

“Our vision is to go beyond being a regular plant procurement service” Elliott said. “We like to think of ourselves as an extension of our customers’ operations team, their sourcing partners. The expansion of our service area is the next step in our journey in the landscape industry, and we are excited to see where it takes us.”
