Tailor-Made Solutions For Corn
Corn is an important crop primarily used for food, animal feed and biofuels. In 2013, farmers grew corn on 184 million hectares worldwide, producing just over 1 billion tonnes. Corn is widely grown around the world and is an important crop in all regions.
Corn farmers are facing many different challenges. Adverse weather, volatile commodity prices, weeds, insects, disease, improper nutrient management and many other factors can threaten a farmer’s operations. But these challenges can also create opportunities to grow corn more efficiently. BASF offers a comprehensive range of products and services to support individual farmer needs. For example, Kixor™ herbicide is one of the latest in a long line of modern herbicides developed by BASF.
Used on its own or in a mixture with other herbicides, Kixor™ can be applied prior to crop planting for fast and complete burndown or as a residual herbicide to control over 80 different weeds, including those resistant to glyphosate.
