Monsanto/BASF tackle resistance in Canada

BASF and Monsanto have set up a herbicide sales programme in Canada aimed at combating resistance to glyphosate. Retailers in eastern Canada will offer a Can$1 (US$1)/acre rebate when farmers purchase Monsanto’s Roundup Weathermax (glyphosate) with certain BASF herbicides for treating the same acreage. The tank-mix partners covered by the scheme are BASF’s Armezon (topramezone), Marksman (dicamba + atrazine) and its saflufenacil (trade-marked as Kixor)- based herbicides, Eragon and Integrity. “Using multiple modes of action is a recommended way to improve the control over higher rates of glyphosate alone, and is a proven way to help delay the development and spread of herbicide resistance,” says BASF Canada herbicides brand manager Sean Chiki.
