Herbicide Best Practices

Optimal weed control for growers

BASF provides growers with effective solutions, technical support and educational tools to help implement weed management programs based on herbicide best practices. As herbicide resistance continues to spread across the United States, these best practices are more important than ever.

Herbicide best practices include proactive weed resistance management and planning appropriately to help ensure effective, on-target applications.

With innovative solutions, technical support and educational tools, BASF is a grower’s No. 1 partner for managing weed resistance by providing more corn and soybean herbicide sites of action than any other crop protection company.

Combined with our proactive outreach to help growers use a comprehensive weed management program that incorporates chemical, cultural and mechanical strategies – BASF is a grower’s first stop for controlling weeds.
