Bayer Production Ornamentals to focus on professional growers

Bayer said this week it is launching Bayer Production Ornamentals, a new business under the Environmental Science business unit of the Crop Science division that will focus on professional growers.

"Bayer will bring to production ornamentals the things that we pride ourselves on in the turf market – from dependable sales and technical support to comprehensive pest management programs that help growers expand their businesses," Bayer U.S. Ornamental Business Manager John Wendorf said. "We look forward to working with a strong group of suppliers and engaging daily with the growers that make this market so vibrant. Together, we know we'll grow something beautiful."

The Production Ornamentals business will give greenhouse growers and nurseries access to Bayer's portfolio of product and pest management solutions and support from technical experts. Among the key offerings are Marengo, a pre-emergent herbicide to control weeds, and Savate, a miticide used to control mites and whiteflies at all stages of their life cycles, including eggs.

"The Bayer mission of Science For A Better Life means that we are constantly innovating and developing new, science-backed solutions that make our customers' lives easier," Wendorf said. "The Bayer product portfolio is built from decades of research and first-hand experience in the ornamentals industry, and we have some ground-breaking innovations coming in 2017 that we can't wait to share with growers."
