BASF increases production of TWINLINE(TM) to meet demand for 2013 
MISSISSAUGA, ON, Nov. 7, 2012 /CNW/ - BASF Canada Inc. (BASF) has increased 
production of its popular TWINLINE(TM) cereal fungicide for the 2013 growing 
season as a direct response to high market demand. 
"Growers responded very well to the benefits that new TWINLINE fungicide 
offered last year which resulted in a sold out position across Canada," says 
Jason Leitch, Brand Manager, Fungicides, at BASF Canada. "This was one of the 
largest cereal fungicide launches in Canada. Growers have shown their desire 
for new innovations in the cereal market, and it's clear that TWINLINE 
TWINLINE launched in 2012 as a solution to managing leaf diseases in cereals 
with the added advantage of AgCelence(TM) - a unique plant health benefit 
available only in specific BASF fungicides, including HEADLINE(®). 
"A lot of growers had success with TWINLINE last year and next year even more 
growers will have the opportunity to access it," says Leitch. 
One such grower was Ron Krahn of Rivers, MB. Krahn used TWINLINE on his spring 
wheat and oats and saw a significant benefit. "We sprayed TWINLINE on both at 
flag leaf time and saw between eight and 11 bushels more per acre over the 
check," he says. "We had a really good test weight in our oats as well, which 
wasn't very common this year." 
TWINLINE provides dual modes of action to control a range of leaf diseases, 
including tan spot, septoria leaf spot, leaf rust, stripe rust, spot blotch, 
net blotch, scald, crown rust and powdery mildew. In trials, TWINLINE resulted 
in excellent leaf disease control along with AgCelence benefits leading to an 
average yield response of 3 bushels per acre.(+)
