Dongguan, China: Global cutting-edge plant health management technologies were high on the agenda at an Intelligent Turf Management workshop staged by Bayer Environmental Science China.
During the workshop at Long Island Golf Club, attended by Chinese golf course superintendents, Bayer also pre-launched two new fungicide products – Interface and Dedicate.
“These two blockbuster products have proclaimed Bayer’s formal entry into Chinese turf management market. As a global leader of turf management, Bayer is committed to Chinese market for bringing new innovative solutions that keep exceeding Chinese superintendents’ expectations,” said Mark Schneid, Bayer’s Global Market Manager.
Interface is Bayer’s first turf fungicide with StressGard Formulation Technology. The formulation has been fine-tuned to upgrade the performance of the product, ‘providing superior disease control leading to visibly healthier turf’. It’s a powerful combination of iprodione and trifloxystrobin formulated using StressGard Formulation Technology.
StressGard Formulation Technology is a Bayer patent-protected technology, which has taken over 15 years of Bayer Research and Development. It is a unique combination of active ingredients, inert ingredients and turf specific co-formulants. The combination of these helps the product perform extremely well, especially in high-stress turf disease conditions.
Dedicate is a highly effective and broad spectrum contact and systemic turf fungicide containing trifloxystrobin and tebuconazole. It is rapid acting, long lasting and can be used throughout the year but is particularly effective against summer turf disease pressures.
Bayer is a global leader in providing innovative solutions to pest, weed and plant disease problems in the professional turf markets, including the golf and amenity sector.
“Now Bayer comes to China with an Intelligent Turf Management experience and a focus on ‘Healthy Turf, Healthy Tomorrow’ programme, which helps superintendents manage turf in easier and smarter ways,” said Sean Shen, Bayer’s Country Head for Environmental Science China.
