"Ultimately, the healthier the grass plant, the better chance it has of standing up to disease threats, and the more likely it's able to recover," Dr Colin Mumford, from the Bayer Turf Solutions team, said.
Mumford will be at the show to speak on plant health at 2.10pm on 19 January, highlighting how the use of the correct formulations can safeguard healthy, playable turf.
The seminar will complement the main focus of the stand, and will offer guidance on maintaining optimum plant health, by giving insight into how formulation technology can improve turf quality, and enhance drought stress reduction through factors such as improved root development and reduction of oxidative stress in the plant.
The rest of the Turf Solutions team will be on stand number A46 to discuss turf-related issues. On the Bayer stand, grass samples displayed on plinths will showcase how Interface with Stressgard Formulation Technology benefits turf health. Interface contains 256g/L iprodione and 16g/L trifloxystrobin.
Also on display will be the Bayer TurfXpert App for visitors to experience. The app, already downloaded by over 4,000 industry professionals, is an identification tool for weeds, pests and diseases.
