Our Environmental Science team offers pest, plant care and weed control solutions that improve the quality, healthfulness and beauty of the environment and the spaces where we live our lives. We continually explore solutions that will help professionals meet the changing needs of today and address the urgent need for new, sustainable pest and turf management practices for the future.
Our Professional Turf & Ornamentals business helps turf managers, ornamentals businesses, railways and industrial vegetation management sectors control weeds, plant diseases and insect pests that can damage indoor and outdoor spaces and serve as a nuisance or human health hazard. Bayer’s professional pest management solutions help pest management professionals safeguard communities from insect pests that can serve as a threat to public health and hygiene. And as a global leader in vector control, we’ve worked for many years to improve and expand products designed to protect human health against vector-borne diseases in the United States and globally.
Recently, Environmental Science has expanded its portfolio to include pioneering non-synthetic solutions, including biological and botanical products. Bayer recently launched Nortica®, the first biological product proven to manage nematode problems in turf. In early 2013, we also launched Harmonix™ Insect Spray, a new botanical insecticide for use by professional pest managers. The product, while registered for broad use, is especially ideal for use in sensitive spaces such as schools and healthcare facilities.
