BASF, Monsanto Canada Jointly Launch Weed Control Program
Friday, March 8th, 2013
BASF Canada and Monsanto Canada have teamed up for a new program that promotes best stewardship practices for improved weed control and sustainable weed management.
Working together with retailers across Eastern Canada, BASF Canada and Monsanto Canada are offering farmers a $1-per-acre rebate when Roundup WeatherMAX® herbicide is purchased with matching acres of INTEGRITY®, ERAGON®, MARKSMAN® or ARMEZON™ herbicides. Together, these tank-mix partners deliver multiple modes of action to meet the challenge of controlling tough and resistant weeds.
"Using multiple modes of action is a recommended way to improve the control over higher rates of glyphosate alone, and is a proven way to help delay the development and spread of herbicide resistance," says Sean Chiki, Brand Manager for Herbicides at BASF Canada. "Adding these new modes of action to your herbicide program is an important step for improved weed control and sustainable weed management."
As key tank-mix partners, INTEGRITY, ERAGON, MARKSMAN and ARMEZON complement Roundup WeatherMAX by providing additional modes of action for optimized weed control. Together they can also combat glyphosate-resistant weeds such as Canada fleabane, common ragweed and giant ragweed.
"We're very pleased to be working together to provide farmers with the best solutions for their fields," says Sean Dilk, Weed Management Technical Lead at Monsanto Canada. "Using an effective tank-mix partner with Roundup WeatherMAX helps provide control of glyphosate-resistant weeds while offering residual weed control.
Tank-mixing multiple modes of action is an important part of sustainable weed management."
The off-invoice discount is applicable on products sold between November 15, 2012 and June 30, 2013. In addition, farmers are eligible for AgSolutions® Rewards on their INTEGRITY, ERAGON, MARKSMAN and ARMEZON purchases.
For additional information on the program, farmers should contact their local BASF and Roundup brand herbicide retailers.
