In 2014, we ran Back 9 Challenge as a large scale demonstration program. Indooroopilly Golf Club was one of five golf clubs that participated.  

Indooroopilly Golf Club is a 36-hole parkland golf course on the Brisbane River. The course has couch grass (Bermuda grass) from tee to green. The ERI diseases are a common problem on Couch Grass and they are concern at Indooroopilly Golf Club. Being in the sub-tropical area Crowsfoot Grass is a common weed problem.

As of Oct 4th 2022, the Environmental Science division of Bayer was divested and transferred to Envu. Note that this content was produced prior to separation.
