BASF Canada invites growers to Knowledge Harvest events
MISSISSAUGA, ON, February 25, 2014 – BASF Canada Inc. (BASF) kicked off Knowledge Harvest today, a six city series of events for growers and retailers from across Western Canada.
The events, which will be held in Lethbridge, Portage la Prairie, Regina, Saskatoon, Yorkton and Edmonton, are designed to share new ideas and perspectives for sustainable agriculture with BASF customers.
“Growers play an important role in developing sustainable farming practices,” says Howie Zander, National Sales and Accounts Manager for BASF Canada. “BASF is committed to working with our customers and we hope to meet with 2,500 growers and retailers at these events.”
The events will provide attendees with information on how biologicals and seed treatments are opening new opportunities for crops, offer strategies for managing herbicide resistance, and give growers an opportunity to see the latest innovations in BASF plant health research.
Best-selling author and keynote speaker Richard Worzel will lead a discussion of what the future of agriculture holds for elite growers.
“The future of agriculture is bright and the market for agricultural products is expanding,” says Worzel. “Technology is providing growers new tools and techniques to help trim costs and increase output to keep up with this demand.”
