MISSISSAUGA, ON, January 27, 2011 – Effective immediately, BASF Canada is announcing a price adjustment for Odyssey® DLX, Viper® and Solo® herbicides. For pea, Clearfield® canola, Clearfield lentil, and/or Clearfield sunflower growers in western Canada, this adjustment delivers a better opportunity to harness the highly effective and sustainable weed control offered by these herbicides.

“The value of the BASF herbicide portfolio is centered on innovative, multiple-mode-of-action herbicides,” says Chris VanderKant, BASF Canada, Western Herbicides Market Manager. “Our most recent herbicide innovations, including Odyssey DLX and Viper, deliver growers more effective sustainable weed control solutions.
