KNOW THE BENTAZONE RISK
THREE industry-leading manufacturers have formed a new partnership to help safeguard the future of a post-emergence herbicide that is under threat of de-regulation when it is up for re-approval in 2025.
BASF, Nufarm and Sharda Cropchem have formed the “Know the Bentazone Risk” initiative which is aimed at promoting sustainable on-farm water stewardship through marketing, events, on-farm engagement, and the development of management tools.
In addition to supporting farmers, the group will highlight good practice and liaise with external bodies - such as the Environmental Agency and water companies - to ensure they are aware of the industry’s commitment to reduce the levels of bentazone detected in surface and groundwater sources.
