DuPont Partners with Audubon’s Cooperative Sanctuary Program for Golf Courses
DuPont Professional Products, within the DuPont Crop Protection business, recently announced a new sponsorship with the Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary Program for Golf Courses (ACSP). With more than 100 customers of its herbicides and insecticides currently registered with the Audubon program, DuPont wants to make it easier for more golf courses to benefit from this widely-respected program. As an exclusive offer to current customers, DuPont will cover half of the membership fee for up to 50 additional courses in 2011.
When golf courses join the ACSP, they must meet a list of goals in order to apply for certification. They collaborate with Audubon to develop and implement an environmental management plan and document results in six areas: environmental planning, wildlife and habitat management, chemical use reduction and safety, water conservation, water quality management, and outreach and education.
“ This program is very popular with our customers, who are loyal users of our products that deliver a high level of control against key insect pests and weeds with a low level of risk to harm non-target organisms,” said Nancy Schwartz, marketing manager for turf and ornamentals. “We want to encourage more customers to join the ACSP and benefit in ways that improve both their environmental impact and their bottom-line.”
Many DuPont customers use DuPont™ Acelepryn® insecticide and DuPont™ Imprelis™ herbicide for insect and weed control, respectively. One application of Acelepryn® delivers excellent control of the 10 toughest grubs, plus other key surface-feeding pests. No other grub product can match its level of performance or outstanding environmental and toxicological profile. Plus, Acelepryn® has been registered by the U.S. EPA as a reduced-risk pesticide for turf applications.
Imprelis™ allows turf professionals to control dandelion, clover and plantains, plus the toughest broadleaf weeds — like ground ivy and wild violets — even during reseeding or rainy days. Its single active ingredient has one of the lowest application rates, combined with low toxicity to mammals and low environmental impact. Studies show that it is effective against many hard-to-control weeds, and is not impacted by rain, hot temperatures or cool temperatures.
