BASF has launched a comprehensive new resource to help farmers develop effective weed control programs – the Advanced Weed Control Website. Created by BASF with input from farmers, this resource arms farmers with the latest expert information, recommendations and insights on effective weed control based on geography.
“Farmers told us that herbicides are increasing in importance for their operations, especially due to the rise in glyphosate resistant weeds,” said Dan Westberg, Ph.D., Technical Market Manager, BASF. “And, that herbicide effectiveness for the weeds on their farm is top priority. The Advanced Weed Control Website provides information to help growers achieve clean fields – which translates to higher yields.”
The Website combines maps and simple prompts to help visitors evaluate BASF weed control solutions based on their geography, weed pressure and crop. This information is enhanced with informational videos from local agronomists and weed scientists to develop a comprehensive, sustainable weed control program.
“Weed control isn’t one size – or herbicide – fits all anymore,” said Westberg. “BASF provides the most herbicide sites of action in the industry, which can be tailored with the Advanced Weed Control online resource to address the key weeds farmers are facing.”
Visitors to the site will find product and weed control strategy recommendations that combine to build an effective program, such as application tips for herbicide stewardship and maximum performance or prioritizing fields for a preemerge residual herbicide to manage tough weeds.
