BASF hosts ‘Science Behind’ crop protection symposium
Both Cullers and Dowdy discussed their strategies for growing high-yield crops, which include the use of a planned and complete pest management program.
“It doesn’t matter how the season is progressing, every year we start the season with the decision that we will stay ahead of weeds, disease and insect pests,” Cullers said. “By planning ahead, we are able to take control of pests before they negatively affect our crop, helping us maximize yield and ROI.”
AJ Woodyard, technical crop production specialist, BASF, shared newly released results from three years of crop protection research trials, using a comprehensive approach, which led to an average 6.0 bu/A increase in soybeans and 18.2 bu/A increase in corn when compared to a non-residual, glyphosate-based program.1,
