Research Triangle Park, North Carolina (May 7, 2012)--Every growing season is accompanied by its share of risk. One demonstrated method for minimizing that risk and maximizing yield is to use a complete pest management program. This includes:
• Herbicides such as those powered by Kixor® herbicide technology to control tough weeds that compete with crops for water and nutrients.
• Fungicides such as Headline AMP™ fungicide for corn and Headline® fungicide for soybeans to control crop diseases and improve overall Plant Health.
• Insecticides such as Respect® insecticide to protect crops from insect pests that threaten yield potential.
Herbicides, fungicides and insecticides each have a positive influence, but together, they are even more impactful. Multiyear research by BASF found that using a complete pest management program led to an average 11.7 bu/A increase in corn over a common atrazine-based premix approach and an average 6.8 bu/A increase in soybeans over a non-residual glyphosate-based program.1,2
