$500,000 Bayer Pollinator Forage Initiative Launched
Bayer’s Feed a Bee program in the USA, currently in its third year, has rallied more than 900,000 individuals and 117 partner organizations to plant more than 2 billion wildflowers across the USA, creating and expanding forage areas for pollinators.

Offutt Company, Sweet Virginia Foundation, Project Apis m., amongst others, as well as representatives from the Bayer Bee Care Program, will distribute $500,000 in funding over the next two years to establish additional forage for pollinators in all 50 states by 2018.

EnP to Market Foliar-Pak Brand Nationally
Beginning this summer, EnP will market its Foliar-Pak brand of fertilizers nationally and retire the EnP Turf brand. Traditionally, the Foliar-Pak brand has been sold in the Midwest and Long Island, New York, while the EnP Turf brand was sold everywhere else, but both contain some of the same formulations and the new amino acid and poly-amino acid technologies. EnP Turf customers will notice new packaging, new product names, and even some new products in the line, but the quality and performance they have come to expect from EnP Turf products will remain consistent. Current Foliar-Pak customers will soon have access to a few additional products that were previously exclusively sold under the EnP Turf label.
