London, England: Greenkeepers looking for the latest product advances to aid integrated pest and disease management shouldn’t miss the new innovative product launches from Bayer at next month’s BIGGA Turf Management Exhibition (BTME).
Conscious of the need to find new solutions, Bayer – an Executive Member of the Asian Golf Industry Federation – will be officially launching a new fungicide to the market at the event.
This product will offer the first new chemistry to be developed in 10 years, giving greenkeepers more tools in their armoury and helping to mitigate the threat of disease resistance.
New advances for golf courses are vital, as greenkeepers battle issues such as the threat of pesticide resistance, the continued pressure of loss of actives to the market and unpredictable weather patterns.
And Bayer has found that greenkeepers would value a device that helps with best practice management, to help calculate applications accurately, according to the area being treated.
The latest update to the TurfXpert app now helps users to calculate product requirements by mapping out a specific area, using GPS technology to accurately calculate the exact amount of product required to treat the chosen area.
On top of this, any applications that have been made can be recorded in the sprayer log section with the option to forward on the details via email.
Bayer has also added a new weather feature to the updated TurfXpert app, which not only provides the user with the most accurate local weather forecasts, but also advises on dew formation, frost incidence, and soil surface temperature.
The new product and the updated TurfXpert app will be officially launched at BTME from January 15-18, 2017 at the Harrogate International Centre on Bayer stand A46.
The current version of the TurfXpert app is available from the App Store and Google Play.
Birmingham, England: The PGA of Great Britain & Ireland is inviting all those who work or volunteer in golf to join its new membership groups – the Business Management Group and Club Volunteer by PGA.
