A new turf management platform designed to support turf managers’ decisions has been launched by Bayer Environmental Science.

Called TurfView, the app provides real-time pest and vegetation model alerts based on hyper-localized agronomic data.

“We’re delighted that Canada is the first country to launch TurfView,” Colin White, marketing manager for Bayer Environmental Science Canada, said. “We’ve had very positive feedback from customers who’ve had a chance to test it and have a strong team in place to support users in discovering its features.”

TurfView provides turf managers with real-time agronomic data specific to their facility. The precise, up-to-the-minute weather data includes lightning alerts and radar views and is based on geo-points individually selected to best represent the course. Based on this data combined with specific pest models, TurfView is able to reliably predict the risk of various diseases and insects before they occur. Golf course superintendents can base turf management decisions on localized predictions and reliable forecasts, while tracking weeds, insects and pests with the accurate growing degree Days model. TurfView can also help to optimize irrigation, thanks to accurate recommendations based on soil temperature and moisture, evapotranspiration, and cloud cover. Most importantly, all these features come in just one easy-to-use app available on all mobile devices and desktop interfaces.
