New Bayer partnership promises educational benefits

An exciting new senior education partnership between the GCSAI and Bayer will be officially launched at this year’s annual GCSAI conference on 14 November, and it promises to bring a raft of educational opportunities for the association’s members.

Greg Collins of the Bayer Turf Solutions Team explains that he is already very familiar with the GCSAI and is looking forward to aligning even more closely with the organisation and its members.

“I’ve worked with the GCSAI on a local and national level, and even became the association’s treasurer and honorary secretary for a short period. So, when we were considering the partnership, I already knew how the association functioned, and how it could work in harmony with Bayer,” says Greg.

“The partnership provides us with an ideal platform to share industry news with the greenkeeping community in Ireland, meaning that we can update members on important issues such as regulatory changes that may affect their use of plant protection products,” he adds.

The new relationship will also see members of the Bayer Turf Solutions Team positioned as speakers at various GCSAI educational roadshows. Their presentations will provide insight into numerous aspects of turf management, including new product innovation, integrated management practices and disease prevention, to name just a few.

Greg believes the future for this educational partnership is bright, and is open to where it will lead and sees endless opportunities going forwards.
