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
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.
