Environmental Science, a division of Bayer CropScience LP, announced that the North American turf and ornamentals (T&O) business will move to fully serve the production ornamentals market on November 1, 2016. The shift will enable the Bayer T&O business to serve professional growers in greenhouses, nurseries and garden centers across the United States. To facilitate their entry into this market, Bayer will begin marketing products and active ingredients that have previously been marketed by OHP Inc., as well as other Bayer chemistries.
"OHP has been a highly valued partner of Bayer for the past 26 years," said Gilles Galliou, president of Bayer Environmental Science North America. "Moving ahead, Bayer looks forward to an exciting opportunity to be more directly engaged with the high-quality businesses in this vibrant industry and to get even closer to our customers."
Bayer has supported the ornamentals markets with innovative chemistries for decades and with closer involvement, will also offer the service, expertise and trust its turf and landscape customers have relied on for years. Although Bayer and OHP are changing their relationship as of November 1, 2016, the two organizations will continue to work together to seamlessly meet customers' needs throughout the year-long transition period.
