Clearfield commitment for lentils reminder

Feb. 21, 2013, Winnipeg, MB - This year (2013) marks the second year that BASF's multi-year Clearfield commitment for lentils will be in place.

Those who signed up in 2012 for the multi-year agreement will only need to report the varieties that they are growing and register their total acres this year. Previously, growers were required to sign a new Clearfield Commitment for lentils each year.

In January 2012, BASF announced that growers could sign up for a multi-year Clearfield Commitment for lentils. By initially signing the Clearfield commitment and registering Clearfield lentil acres in subsequent years, growers are eligible for product support and AgSolutions Rewards on those acres.

The Clearfield Commitment for lentils is an agreement between a Clearfield lentil grower and BASF Canada. In addition to completing and signing a multi-year Clearfield Commitment, growers agree to Clearfield-confirm test all seed used in the Clearfield Production System for lentils — which will ensure the seed used has the Clearfield herbicide tolerances. Testing for the 2013 growing season will again be done free of charge at one of several prairie seed labs. A full listing can be found at www.agsolutions.ca.
