29/08/2012

Farmers can now rely on a new mobile application to support effective weed management, particularly of tough-to-control and glyphosate-resistant weeds. 

Weed Manager PLUS, launched at this year’s Farm Progress® Show, is the latest tool added to Monsanto’s Roundup Ready PLUS™ Weed Management Solutions platform.  The mobile app provides:

  • Weed management recommendations by region and crop
  • Calculates potential incentives for farmers who use endorsed residual herbicide products
  • Delivers a tank mixing tool and measurement conversion calculator

“We’re very excited to offer Weed Manager PLUS to farmers who want to take a proactive approach to weed control,” said Chris Reat, Roundup Ready PLUS Marketing Manager.  “This new app gives them an innovative tool they can use in the field as they are making their weed management decisions.”

Weed Manager PLUS can be downloaded at Google Play™ or the Apple App StoreSM.   For more information on weed control, visit www.RoundupReadyPLUS.com.

The Roundup Ready PLUS platform was developed by Monsanto in conjunction with leading academics, agronomists and other industry partners.  It offers the latest weed management recommendations, including the use of preemerge residual herbicides, to provide multiple modes of action for controlling tough weeds, as well as financial incentives for farmers who use endorsed herbicide products.
