fps16-basf-ravenWhen Engenia™ herbicide receives regulatory approval, it is expected to have one of the most detailed labels ever for the application of a crop protection product and BASF has done extensive testing to determine the best methods of application.

One product that has received the seal of approval is Raven’s Sidekick Pro™ direct injection system and company representative Denton Schwiesow was on hand at the Farm Progress Show to talk about it. “We have been through the process of testing compatibility with the Engenia product with the pump itself,” he said. “There’s no issues there and we’re ready to go when the market’s ready to go.”

Schwiesow says that Sidekick direct injection has been out for a long time but it offers new benefits for farmers in light of increased label requirements, such as an automatic rinse system. “You can simply turn off your injection pump and you only have to worry about cleaning out your wet boom,” he explained. “That’s going to save operators a lot of time.”
