BASF Crop Protection would like to congratulate Todd Reichardt, Aurora, Nebraska; Sean Ness, Buffalo, Minn.; Kevin Ehlers, Neillsville, Wis.; Doug Konken, Austin, Minn.; George Soltwedel, Altamont, Ill.; Russ Fullenkamp, Bloomfield, Iowa; Bruce West, Rollingfork, Miss.; Geoff Trainer, Cardington, Ohio; and Michael Green, Clay Center, Kan. — winners of an Apple iPod nano for completing the Kixor herbicide technology online training module.

BASF launched the online training program for Kixor herbicide technology to provide valuable information on how Kixor helps address growers' toughest weed challenges, including those resistant to ALS inhibitors, triazines and glyphosate. Growers and retailers who completed the training before Sept. 30, 2010, were entered into a drawing to win an iPod nano.


"BASF is excited to present these lucky retailers and growers with a fun, easy-to-use piece of technology," said Bryan Perry, Kixor product manager. "The training module is also a great way to inform retailers, distributors, consultants and growers on how Kixor is simple, effective technology that easily integrates into operations to conquer weed pressures."


The engaging audio-visual program features technical information about the products powered by Kixor, including OpTill herbicide, Sharpen herbicide and newly released Verdict herbicide. The module reminds users how and when to use these products, and includes performance photos as well as useful key benefits for retailers who provide Kixor to their customers.
