Reporters at the recent National Association of Farm Broadcasting were eager to find out more from BASF about when Engenia™ herbicide will be registered for use.
“We’re expecting registration of Engenia herbicide within weeks and growers will have it in time for the 2017 growing season,” said BASF Technical Marketing Manager Chad Asmus.
Engenia™ herbicide is a technologically advanced dicamba formulation that provides an additional site of action for control of broadleaf weeds in dicamba-tolerant crops, including soybeans and cotton. “As a new and effective site of action for dicamba-tolerant crops, Engenia herbicide will control over 200 of the most difficult broadleaf weeds, including glyphosate-resistant species, giving growers back the weed control that they need,” said Asmus.
In this interview, Asmus also talks about what BASF has been doing over the past two years to prepare for registration of Engenia by educating growers on proper application stewardship. [wpaudio url=”http://traffic.libsyn.com/zimmcomm/nafb-16-basf-asmus.mp3″ text=”Interview with Chad Asmus, BASF”]
