BASF @ GIS 2019

San Diego, California | February 2 - 7

Join us at BASF GENERATION TURF BOOTH #1939!

In 2019, BASF is celebrating plant health innovation that has shaped a generation of turf professionals—from our Intrinsic® Brand fungicides that have helped deliver championship conditions for 10 years strong, to the unveiling of our next generation of groundbreaking science that will set the stage for the next decade. No better way to reflect on our accomplishments and kick-off an amazing year than to spend it at GIS 2019!

 

Visit the BASF GENERATION TURF BOOTH (#1939) for a first-hand look into how BASF plans to change the plant health game—again. While you should come because it's the place to be for golf industry enthusiasts, we've also got some great things in store. The booth will feature one-of-a-kind giveaways, an Inside the Science Virtual Reality experience, live education from industry professionals and a BASF punching machine that lets you see how your power matches up to powerful BASF solutions.

 

See you there!
