BASF announces new collaboration with AGCO
Herbicide-resistant pigweed is a major economic issue for U.S. farmers. It has the ability to grow rapidly and produce large amounts of seed, out-competing crops and causing significant yield loss. BASF launched Operation Weed Eradication to call on the industry to take action against pigweed through a balanced approach of cultural and mechanical practices, chemical control and diligence.
AGCO is joining with BASF in Operation Weed Eradication to collaborate on sound cultural and mechanical practices that can be implemented along with chemical control and grower eradication diligence.
