BASF and John Deere Gang Up on Soybean Disease

BASF and John Deere Gang Up on Soybean Disease

New offer pairs BASF's Priaxor fungicide with spray nozzles from John Deere to boost efficiency

Soybean producers have a choice this season for a deal that combines an effective soybean fungicide with an effective way to apply it as BASF and John Deere partner to boost yields through better crop protection efficiency.

Growers who purchase $300 or more of Priaxor fungicide from BASF before March 15, may qualify to buy John Deere spray nozzles between April 1 and May 31 with no payments and no-interest financing for 150 days.

Priaxor fungicide is a broad spectrum fungicide that has shown a yield increase over untreated acres in 87% of more than 75 field trials conducted by BASF in 2010 and 2011.

New offer pairs BASF's Priaxor fungicide with spray nozzles from John Deere to boost efficiency

Deere's nozzles offer precision sprayer performance in a variety of specialized applications including the Twin-Air nozzle for use in low crops with complex canopies.

The companies say this enhanced targeted coverage maximizes the effectiveness of Priaxor by distributing it evenly on soybean leaves, where it delivers its chemistry.
