By Eleanor McGillie

BAYER’S new high performing fungicide, which can be used for the prevention and control of certain diseases of turfgrass, was launched in Northern Ireland on February 21 at Banbridge Golf Club.

Interface, which will be stocked by James Coburn & Son Limited in Banbridge, is a top performing fungicide which can be used mainly on golf greens and bowling greens but is also suitable for professional sports grounds and stadia, tennis lawns and cricket pitches.

Technical representatives from James Coburn & Son Limited joined head greenkeepers and Bayer representatives at Banbridge Golf Club for the first launch of the fungicide in Northern Ireland.

William Cartmill, general manager of James Coburn & Son Limited, said: “Coburn’s is delighted to have hosted the first launch of Interface in Northern Ireland. Interface is the first Bayer fungicide with StressGard formulation which means it is the most high powered fungicide available from Bayer.

“Greenkeepers who will use Interface will see how the greens benefit from it as it can be used all year round. It can be used as a preventative curative measure or as an eradicant. Interface provides superior disease control and manages disease stress leading to improved playability and visibly healthier turf.”

StressGard Formulation Technology is Bayer’s most advanced turf formulation yet. StressGard Formulation Technology is a unique combination of active ingredients, inert ingredients and turf specific co-formulants. It is the combination of these which help the product perform in unique turf disease stress conditions. StressGard Formulation Technology is specifically designed for turf and has been fine tuned to upgrade the performance of the product, providing superior disease control leading to visibly healthier turf.
