  • Operation Weed Eradication. The end of weeds as we know them.

One weed is one too many. Herbicide resistance is spreading and becoming more costly, and there are growing seedbanks lurking in your soil.

Watch outs: variables that could cause setbacks

  • Over reliance on a single MOA
  • Poor weather
  • Lack of diligence on escapes
  • Herbicide resistance

We must lead with an on-farm weed eradication mindset to secure the future state of farming.

That’s why BASF is leading the charge in recruiting tough-minded growers and industry partners to defend acres in new ways and eliminate the yield-robbers altogether. This will take a balanced approach of cultural, chemical and mechanical practices.

Let the operation begin.
