The first two months of the new year came in on a roll with the Sports Turf Manager’s (STMA) conference and the Golf Industry Show (GIS) both being held in San Diego. Attendance was up for both shows as a great West Coast venue brought in significant numbers from Pacific Rim countries. The success of Barenbrug’s RTF®, RPR® and HGT® professional turf programs continues to draw attention and rave reviews from professional turf managers. At GIS, Barenbrug introduced our new enhanced coating program featuring Aquatrols soil penetrant technology. Ideal for plantings with ‘water deficit’ and/or saline issues, our new Yellow Jacket® formulation represents the first commercially available seed coating containing Aquatrols Seed Enhancement Technology.
