He’s been talking to golf course superintendents for years, and now as Director of Marketing for Sipcam Agro USA, he’s helping turn their biggest challenges into simplified solutions that work. Take Poa annua, for example.

With the introduction of Coastal™ Herbicide in 2019, superintendents in the southern states now have a comprehensive solution for control of broadleaf and grassy weeds, including Poa annua.

In trials conducted by Mississippi State University, University of Florida, University of Georgia, University of Tennessee, North Carolina State University, Louisiana State University and Texas A&M University, Coastal was shown to provide exceptional control of broadleaf weeds like white clover and henbit, and grassy weeds including Poa annua and crabgrass.

Technology takes turf to the next level

Historically, turf professionals have relied on good growing conditions, properly timed product applications and sound cultural practices to take their turf to a certain point. For superintendents who want to elevate their turf to an even higher level, Sipcam Agro developed its exclusive Enhanced Turf Quality (ETQ™) technology.

These science-based solutions combine a proprietary complex blend with proven fungicides and other plant protectants to provide maximum protection against high temperature and drought stress events. More than just reflective surface activity, ETQ technology is absorbed into the plant, providing protection at the cell level all the way to the roots. The harmful effects of UVB and UVA are diminished on the surface, while inside the plant, chloroplasts are protected for optimal turf health, color, strength, density and consistency.

Wineinger offers a look at how the company is turning customer challenges into solutions with new products and a new program designed to save superintendents money.
