BASF Canada and Monsanto Canada team up again for improved weed management

BASF Canada and Monsanto Canada team up again for improved weed management 
MISSISSAUGA, ON, Nov. 6, 2013 /CNW/ - Working together with retailers across 
eastern Canada, BASF Canada and Monsanto Canada are once again offering 
growers a $1 per acre rebate when INTEGRITY(®), ERAGON(®), MARKSMAN(®) 
and/or ARMEZON(® )herbicides are purchased with matching acres of Roundup 
WeatherMAX(®) herbicide. Together, these tank-mix partners deliver multiple 
modes of action for optimized activity on tough to control and potentially 
resistant weeds. 
For growers in eastern Canada, this will be a year-end rebate that is 
applicable on products purchased between October 1, 2013 and July 31, 2014. 
Growers will receive their rebate cheque in fall of 2014. 
"The potential for herbicide resistance is a concern, so it's important for 
growers to use best practices, which includes using multiple modes of action 
when controlling weeds," said Sean Chiki, Brand Manager for Herbicides at BASF 
Canada. "Rotating herbicide chemistries and using multiple modes of action are 
necessary strategies for 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 combat glyphosate-resistant weeds such as Canada 
fleabane, common ragweed and giant ragweed. 
"Monsanto is committed to delivering high yielding corn and soybean varieties 
to growers through elite germplasm and traits," said Jenna Book, Crop 
Protection Marketing Manager at Monsanto Canada. "Partnering with BASF 
herbicides provides maximum control of glyphosate-resistant weeds with the 
added benefit of residual weed control. Adding a tank-mix partner offers 
growers optimal weed control which maximizes their crop yields." 
In addition to the $1 per acre rebate, growers 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 Monsanto retailers.
