ADVERTORIAL Derek Settle, Ph.D. Green solutions specialist South @turfdom Laurence Mudge Green solutions team manager Southeast @lcmtiger Bayer's Green Solutions Team was founded in 2012, bringing together some of the leading experts in the T&O industry to provide customers the scientific knowledge to address their unique business goals and challenges, and to help support the industry as a whole with scientific thought leadership, education and training. The Green Solutions Team is responsible for supporting internal and external technical presentations, developing educational articles and resources, working with the Bayer development team in coordinating product research and demonstration trials, and maintaining relationships with university constituents that test and recommend Bayer products. They also provide scientific support and technical product training to help regional sales teams, distributors and end-user customers optimize Bayer's professional T&O products and ensure they are used most effectively. The team works closely with superintendents to deliver solutions beyond a product focus, for holistic turf care that takes into consideration all aspects of turf management. The Green Solutions Team communicates turf management recommendations – along with the latest turf disease, weed and insect information – to T&O trade media and also via social media.
