“Headline AMP fungicide continues to be the fungicide market leader for corn growers, delivering more bushels per acre than any other product on the market,” said Caren Schmidt, Ph.D., Technical Marketing Manager, BASF. “Headline AMP fungicide has set the industry standard for disease control and Plant Health in corn crops.”

“An effective burndown is important for fighting resistant weeds in no-till fields,” said Daniel Waldstein, Technical Market Manager, BASF. “Sharpen herbicide controls over 70 broadleaf weeds, including glyphosate-resistant weeds, and gives growers a clean start so they can stay clean throughout the season and increase yield potential.”

The No-Till Product of the Year award winners are selected each year by No-Till Farmer readers. No-till and conservation tillage growers vote for the products most valuable to their farming operation in 13 different categories, including fungicide and herbicide products of the year.
