BASF rolls out Engenia training across US
BASF is to carry out stewardship training for the use of its dicamba-based herbicide, Engenia, across 24 US states this year. It will be the largest training initiative in the company's history, BASF points out. Engenia will be for use on Monsanto's glyphosate- and dicamba-tolerant Roundup Ready 2 Xtend (MON87708xMON89788) soybeans and Bollgard II XtendFlex (MON88701xMON88913xMON15985) cotton. BASF expects EPA approval for Engenia in 2015. The company's training and plot tour series will cover stewardship of other products and there will be a special academy on the importance of proper application techniques.
