BASF innovation offer to reach new heights

BASF has announced their new 2020 innovation offer, inviting farmers to scan their cans to be in with a chance of winning a DJI Mavic 2 Pro drone with full training to Civil Aviation Authority standards.

Powered by a 12-megapixel sensor, DJI’s flagship drone offers dynamic shots from wide angle to mid-range, allowing film and images to be captured at heights of up to 500m. With an autofocused tracking system, the aircraft offers 31 minutes of flight time with low-noise propellers and speeds of up to 72kph.

The Innovation offer, which returns for the third time this year, includes can scans of BASF’s new fungicide Revystar XE as well as Adexar.

Murielle Moille, BASF Cereal Fungicide Campaign Manager commented on the offer: “Following a difficult winter, farmers will be looking to protect their crops to offer the highest optimum yield. Revystar XE is a unique solution containing the first Isopropanol-Azole Revysol, and the leading SDHI, Xemium. The combination of these two different modes of action ensures an outstanding efficacy on a broad spectrum of diseases, and shows an unprecedented long-lasting protection, giving your greater confidence and farm workload flexibility.

“Including Adexar in the offer gives farmers the opportunity to benefit from our innovation offer whilst also providing a strong fungicide programme.”

Mrs Moille added, “Our previous innovation offers have built long-standing friendships with the winners still talking regularly via their WhatsApp groups. I look forward to welcoming the 2020 winners to our community network when we bring them together for their drone training. Good luck to everyone scanning their cans”

Farmers need to scan just one can of Revystar XE or Adexar to receive a water bottle with integrated wireless earbuds. By scanning three cans, they will be entered into a prize draw to win one of 150 Leatherman SuperTools and if they scan five cans, they will be entered into the top prize draw to win one of 30 drones with training.

Revystar XE has proven excellent control of Septoria and rust, coupled with very rapid leaf uptake for curativity and rainfastness. It can be used at both T1 or T2 timings at the recommended rate of 1 l/ha.

Approved for wheat, barley, oats, rye, triticale, spelt and durum wheat, it also demonstrates strong control on ramularia and with a predicted 30% increase in the UK spring barley area this year, Revystar XE, combined with Pyracolostrobin at T2, can offer strong disease control.

Where yellow rust is a significant concern, Adexar remains the strongest azole on the market and can be combined in tank mix with Revystar XE.
