Cary, North Carolina, United States: As part of its commitment to help golf course superintendents deliver the best experience possible, Bayer is inviting Golf Industry Show (GIS) 2021 attendees looking for an edge to visit their virtual booth.
Golf course superintendents can step up their turf management game with never-before-seen innovations, proven solutions, and geographically customised resources featured in the Bayer booth from February 2-4.
“In this sport, everyone is continually working to improve on the course, so we are always exploring ways to help golf course superintendents up their turf management game,” said Mike Hirvela, Customer Marketing Manager for Turf and Ornamentals at Bayer, an Executive Member of the Asian Golf Industry Federation.
“We cannot wait to discuss our newest innovations with attendees and share expertise that will make it easier to achieve pristine playing conditions year-round,” added Hirvela.
The theme at Bayer’s virtual booth is ‘Maintain Your Edge’ to reflect the drive to deliver the best experience possible to golfers.
The exhibit will feature interactive environments with educational videos, digital flipbooks and a fun Par 5 quiz. Every attendee who takes the quiz and registers will be entered to win one of three premium Mountain Hardwear rain jackets.
In addition to giveaways and opportunities to chat live with Bayer representatives, visitors will learn about the following solutions and resources to help maintain their edge:
● Upcoming Fungicide Solution: Preview Densicor, the powerfully simple new fungicide solution coming this year.
● New Insecticide for Turf Pests: This new insecticide will feature tetraniliprole as the active ingredient, allowing golf course superintendents to take a preventive or early curative approach to white grub, annual bluegrass weevil and other common turf pests.
● Stressgard Experience: See how extraordinary can be the new ordinary with the Stressgard fungicide portfolio.
● The Green Solutions Centre: The Bayer Green Solutions team will be on hand to help superintendents improve their turf management approach with insights and recommendations as they share new resources customised by geographic region.
