    The yield thieves are lurking

    Right now, there are yield thieves lurking in unplanted fields. More commonly known as resistant weeds, these thieves can appear in previously resistance-free fields by field-to-field movement of a weed’s seeds.

    Honoring Farmers Who Make a Difference

    At this year’s 2018 Tournament of Roses® Parade in Pasadena, California, BASF employees and their families had the opportunity to participate in the annual festival of flowers, music and sports thanks to Ag PhD television and radio hosts Darren and Brian Hefty. 

    Wheat

    Taking wheat yields to the limit

    There once was a time when the conversation around pushing yield boundaries was almost exclusive to corn growers. As a result of advances in genetics and more intense management practices, corn yields climbed a steep slope up.

    Have you thanked your aerial applicator today?

    With the National Agricultural Aviation Association (NAAA) estimating about 20 percent of all applied crop protection products completed by air, in addition to almost 100 percent of forest protection applications, many growers throughout the country rely on agriculture pilots to help make on target applications.

    Plant Health

    For plants, the best defense is a good offense

    Each grower may have their own definition of success, but regardless of the definition, growers still need to develop a crop management plan that has a good offense and defense. An input that helps growers on both sides of the ball, so to speak, would be a fungicide application.

    Farming is going digital, and growers have a number of data sources and tools available at their fingertips. Earlier this year, BASF acquired ZedX, a company that develops agronomic weather, crop and pest models that can rapidly translate data into insights for more efficient agricultural production.

    How to be elite with wheat

    Recently, BASF sponsored an event focused solely on wheat production, where attendees were able to learn from growers and industry professionals on how to contribute to the profitability of their operation.

    Prevailing over potato pests

    Despite a late start this year, most potato growers faced minimal disease pressures and powered through harvest with good qualities and yields. Now that 2017 is coming to an end, attention must be turned to the possibility of diseases and pesky weeds in 2018.
