“Bayer will bring to production ornamentals the things that we pride ourselves on in the turf market – from dependable sales and technical support to comprehensive pest management programs that help growers expand their businesses,” said John Wendorf, U.S. Ornamental Business Manager for Bayer. “We look forward to working with a strong group of suppliers and engaging daily with the growers that make this market so vibrant. Together, we know we’ll grow something beautiful.”

The launch of the Bayer Production Ornamentals business means that growers now have access to a comprehensive portfolio of innovative solutions and support, including product and pest management expertise and a team of technical specialists dedicated to solving weed, disease and insect problems.

Marengo controls more than 80 different weeds and offers up to eight months of residual control. The only preemergence herbicide labeled for use inside greenhouses beneath benches, Marengo can be applied in spring or fall to meet the unique needs of growers.
