BASF Launches New Easy-to-Use Spray Tool for Engenia to Help Ensure On-Target Applications


BASF launched its latest stewardship resource to assist growers with on-target applications this season – the Engenia® Herbicide Spray Tool. The mobile-friendly website gives applicators key weather information at the touch of a button without downloading an application. The tool uses a phone’s location services, or a desktop’s IP address to provide localized information for determining the right time to apply Engenia herbicide.



“Weather plays a big role in spray application decision-making,” said Logan Grier, BASF Technical Marketing Manager, Product Stewardship. “We created a resource for growers that has all of the Engenia herbicide weather-related label requirements in one place and supplements the many other tools applicators can use when planning their Engenia herbicide application this growing season.”



The free tool, available at EngeniaStewardship.com, covers all U.S. geographies and incorporates key Engenia herbicide weather-related label restrictions and considerations for the next 36 hours, so applicators can plan ahead. In addition to hourly temperature and cloud cover information, the spray tool also includes:


- Inversion potential, which compares the temperature at ground-level and two meters above the ground to provide the likelihood for an inversion.


- Precipitation probability for the next 24 hours, which helps growers follow the 24-hour rain-free interval.


- Time of sunrise and sunset, including a reminder that no nighttime spraying is permitted.


- Wind speed and direction



Paired with in-field observation at the time of application, along with BASF resources like spray checklists, online training and more, applicators can stay ahead of weed management issues in their fields.



“Stewardship is a top priority at BASF, and we know it is important to growers,” said Grier. “We reached out to them, listened to their concerns and developed resources they can use when planning for an Engenia herbicide application.”



The Engenia Herbicide Spray Tool was developed with the proprietary forecasting technology from ZedX, Inc. which was acquired by BASF in April 2017. Since 1987, ZedX has been at the forefront of integrating weather and agronomic data to provide business intelligence that supports on-farm decision-making.
