MISSISSAUGA, ON, March 6, 2013 /CNW/ - 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
"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.
