Logging on to GreenCast (www.greencastonline.com), the Syngenta Professional Products online technology platform that provides turfgrass managers and lawn care operators with access to innovative tools and services, just became even more rewarding.
Mike Krouse, owner of Lawn Solutions in Arnold, Mo., is the grand prize winner of the GreenCast technology platform sweepstakes. For utilizing the online service, Krouse has been awarded a four-night Caribbean or Mexican cruise for two to the Bahamas, Baja or the Southern Caribbean on either Royal Caribbean Cruise Line or Norwegian Cruise Line.
Syngenta Professional Products presented Krouse with an extensive cruise package filled with additional amenities, services and activities while onboard.
“The GreenCast technology platform sweepstakes is our way of demonstrating our appreciation for those customers who take advantage of the invaluable information and features provided by the online service,” said Chuck Buffington, lawn care market manager, Syngenta Professional Products. “Our goal in offering this added-value resource is to help individuals better manage their businesses with innovative tools that are important to their industry and their job.”
The features available on this free service include soil temperature mapping, pest outlooks, scouting reports, weather patterns, 30-year disease maps, and expert commentary and industry news. The predictive and mapping features are customizable and can be tailored to the specific geography and needs of the registered user for targeted information.
“A lawn care operator needs to have access to reliable information on potential diseases and pests that may affect their region or the home and commercial lawns that they service,” said Buffington. “We simply want to help them make their business as efficient, profitable and successful as possible.”
