PRESS RELEASE

CHIPCO GREEN … just got better!

15th January 2010

CHIPCO GREEN, the UK’s top selling contact fungicide for turf has just got better. It now boasts the most comprehensive pure contact fungicide label available to professional green keepers in the UK.

CHIPCO GREEN ‘s new improved label now officially includes 6 diseases, Fusarium, Red Thread, Dollar Spot, Anthracnose, Leaf Spot and Rust together with full approval for use on golf courses, lawns, bowling greens, cricket pitches, tennis courts and professional sports grounds/stadiums.

CHIPCO GREEN is a contact fungicide with curative and preventative action against a wide range of important turf diseases on all key sports turf surfaces. Paul Clifton, Head of Bayer Environmental Science UK and Ireland points out that “CHIPCO GREEN has been the number one choice for green keepers and turf managers for nearly 30 years, this label improvement shows it is here to stay and highlights the continued investment Bayer is making in this key product. The addition of the anthracnose claim to this new improved approval is also most welcomed”

CHIPCO GREEN can be applied to turf year round no matter how bad the weather is. James Hadlow, Bayer Environmental Science’s Technical and Marketing Manager, says that “CHIPCO GREEN has very flexible application timings” this is because “it works purely by contact action so will work at any time of year, even if rain is due the same day.” CHIPCO GREEN is proven to be rainfast within 1 hour of application, a claim which has been endorsed by CRD on the new improved label.

Unlike chlorothalonil based fungicides, CHIPCO GREEN is approved for use via knapsack sprayers as well as conventional boom sprayers. CHIPCO GREEN is available in a 5L pack or a convenient 1L pack which is ideal for smaller users such as bowling green managers or lawn care operators.
