Bayer Announces Distribution Plan for Ornamentals Business
Nationwide Geographic Coverage for Nursery and Greenhouse Growers

RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C. (September 19, 2016) – Greenhouses and nurseries in all fifty U.S. states will have access to innovations from Bayer. The Environmental Science business unit of Crop Science, a division of Bayer, today announced the initial distribution plan for the new ornamentals business.

 

“We look forward to working with an outstanding group of suppliers,” said John Wendorf, Manager for the Bayer professional ornamentals business. “These distributors are dedicated to the success of their customers in the ornamentals market. The fact that they reach growers across the entire U.S. will ensure growers have full access to the Bayer portfolio of solutions.”   

 

The twelve distributors that will distribute Bayer Ornamental products are:  BFG Supply Company; BWI Companies, Inc.; Crop Production Services (CPS); Griffin Greenhouse Supply; Harrell’s; Hawaii Grower Products, Inc.; Helena Chemical Company; Nursery Connection; Southern Ag; Target Specialty Products; Wilbur-Ellis; and WinField.

 

“In looking to establish relationships for the launch of the Bayer ornamentals business, we chose distributors that we believe reflect our commitment to the ornamental market,” said Wendorf. “Bayer is focused on innovation and the future of the ornamentals industry. We’re on the cusp of some really important, game-changing innovation, and it makes sense for us to work with these distributors to steward that innovation into the market.” 

 

Bayer is committed to bringing new technology and solutions for agriculture and non-agricultural uses. For questions concerning the availability and use of products, contact a local Bayer representative, or visit Crop Science, a division of Bayer, online at www.cropscience.bayer.us.
