Bayer to Offer Industry Expertise for Nursery, Greenhouse and Garden Center Growers through @BayerOrnamental on Twitter
RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C. (May 2, 2016) – Environmental Science, a business unit within the Crop Science division of Bayer, today announced the launch of a new Twitter handle dedicated to engaging and conversing directly with professional growers in nurseries, greenhouses and garden centers across the country. Professional growers can expect to get instant access to industry news and technical expertise and to be among the first to learn when Bayer fully expands its presence in the production ornamentals market in November.
“Establishing a Twitter platform dedicated to ornamentals is a fundamental step in better serving growers,” said John Wendorf, U.S. business manager for the Bayer production ornamentals business. “We look forward to offering growers the same industry and product expertise that our customers have come to expect from the turf side of our business with @BayerGolf and @BayerLawn.”
The development of the @BayerOrnamental Twitter handle is part of an ongoing effort by Bayer to expand its presence in the production ornamentals market.
