BPIA members participated at the 2017 Golf Industry Show in Orlando, Florida. The show was presented by the Golf Course Superintendents Association of America (GCSAA). Hundreds of attendees visited the BPIA booth at the show where they learned about biological products including biopesticides and biostimulants and how such products can be used by the men and women managing and maintaining golf courses in the United States and worldwide.
The GCSAA’s Environmental Institute for Golf (EIFG) was created to assist golf superintendents in operating their golf courses with greater sustainability and in a manner that is compatible with the environment. An important part of EIFG’s mission is educating golf course managers about current industry trends that will help them maintain healthy turf grass while being environmentally responsible in the use of inputs. The EIFG is currently gathering data on nutrient and pest management practices to chronicle changes and improvements in the golf industry. This is a great opportunity for BPIA and its members to engage with the GCSAA, its members, and the entire golf industry by demonstrating the many benefits of biological products.
