Morrisville, N.C. (January 10, 2019) – Nufarm is pleased to announce plans for 2019 Golf Industry Show (GIS), the industry’s premier golf course industry exposition, to be held February 2-7 in San Diego, Calif. Nufarm will feature new research underscoring the significant advantages of top-performing Anuew® PGR, as well as Traction™ and Pinpoint® Fungicides.

The Nufarm exhibit will feature a fun and interactive Anuew PGR training experience. Attendees can view this mini-course and receive a travel mug. They can also attend Nufarm’s live presentations at the booth and complete a punch card for joining just two of three sessions to earn a special Nufarm divot tool gift. 

Better performing plant growth regulation
Anuew PGR delivers performance advantages in several conditions and turf types. On bentgrass, Anuew is long-lasting and more active at lower application rates. It’s also the only late-stage inhibitor to evenly regulate Poa in mixed stands. Anuew provides golf superintendents with the benefit of less mowing and fewer clippings while delivering fast improvement of turfgrass density and appearance. GIS attendees can learn about improved turf regulation, as well as help for collar decline and seedhead suppression with Anuew at the Nufarm booth.

Dollar spot defense and two must-have MOAs
Traction and Pinpoint fungicides offer unique modes of action to help golf superintendents stay in command of dollar spot, including SDHI resistant disease pressure. Beyond top dollar spot defense, Traction is a proven premix and dual-FRAC fungicide that controls more than 19 challenging turf diseases and algal scum on every golf course area, including fairways, greens, aprons and tees.

Nufarm will once again welcome EXCEL Program members to five days of GIS learning and engagement. The EXCEL Program, offered by Nufarm and GCSAA, provides leading-edge development opportunities for 12 assistant superintendents chosen annually from many excellent applicants.
