Sharing information about BASF's innovative products, active ingredients and formulations
I'm traveling out west this week for GCSA meetings and the WECO Turf annual sales meeting in Portland. They had about 30 reps present, along with all management for the division. I spoke to the group about BASF's innovation and products. That included speaking about Freehand® 1.75G herbicide and Pageant™ fungicide for lawn care, golf and ornamentals, as well as Drive® XLR8 herbicide, Segment™ herbicide, Onetime™ herbicide, Trinity® fungicide, and Insignia® fungicide.
Peaks & Prairies GCSA Annual Meeting in Billings, MT
I meet with several distribution partners in the Big Sky Country. UAP, WECO, and Simplot were all there. It was great to go from booth to booth to talk with Montana, Wyoming, and Idaho golf course superintendents. I gave away four FarmLinks trips as the grand raffle prize. All of the winners who were drawn are great superintendents and all are looking forward to the trip in the spring. I would like to continue welcoming more golf course superintendents to the FarmLinks Experience in Alabama.
Have a great weekend, and be safe!
