More fungicide and herbicide solutions available for soybean, canola growers in Western Canada

Oct. 8, 2015, Mississauga, ON - BASF and Monsanto Canada recently expanded their joint product offering, called Powerful Combinations, in Western Canada to include more solutions for soybean and canola growers in the 2016 growing season to maximize production.

"Together, we offer our customers Powerful Combinations for Western Canada," said Julia Harnal, marketing manager for crop protection at BASF Canada. "This offer includes both herbicides and fungicides to help growers manage crop diseases and resistance issues."

The 2016 Powerful Combination offers growers increased value on:

  • PRIAXOR, LANCE and new LANCE AG fungicides when used with Genuity Roundup Ready Canola
  • VIPER ADV herbicide when used with Genuity Roundup Ready 2 Yield soybeans
  • HEAT LQ herbicide when used with Roundup Transorb HC herbicide

"As a leader in providing sustainable weed management solutions, we're again collaborating with BASF to ensure growers have all the flexibility and tools they need to ensure diversity in their crop rotations," said Jennifer Ewankiw, crop protection marketing manager, at Monsanto Canada. "That includes stressing the use of multiple modes of action, sharing herbicide best practices and, this year, adding fungicide best practices to the conversation. Growers want to be proactive in preventing and managing all types of resistance and these new tools will help them do just that."
