Dicamba stewardship resources in the palm of your hand
By the spring, thousands of growers and applicators who plan to use dicamba or auxin-specific products like Engenia® herbicide this growing season will have attended the required dicamba or auxin-specific trainings throughout the country. But what happens once these private and commercial applicators have completed training and are back in the field?
At the 2018 Commodity Classic in Anaheim, California, BASF debuted its new mobile solution, which provides applicators with a mobile-friendly, easy-to-access, digital stewardship resource center in the palm of their hands.
“This new mobile solution allows educational tools to continue to aid those applicators and growers who plan to use Engenia herbicide in 2018 after they have attended a required training session,” said Chad Asmus, BASF Technical Marketing Manager.
The new mobile app solution can be found by visiting EngeniaStewardship.com. This app provides the grower with a host of tools, resources, information and training, such as a spray checklist, a record-keeping form and information on where to attend a dicamba or auxin-specific training session. All of these tools are ready and available at growers’ fingertips to help get the most out of their herbicide applications and have the best growing season possible.
An immersive virtual reality experience on Engenia herbicide also debuted at Commodity Classic. This tool provides information on Engenia herbicide’s chemistry and the benefits of using the product on dicamba-tolerant soybeans and cotton.
“The public has heard the word ‘dicamba’ many times throughout the last couple of months,” said Asmus. “We hope that this virtual reality experience helps provide some insight into how Engenia herbicide is different from not only competitive products on the market, but also older formulations.”
For cotton and soybean growers, and any custom applicators they work with, these are powerful tools. By understanding the chemistry and having thorough details on application best practices, these resources will help them successfully overcome weed resistance issues through proper stewardship practices.
