Agrimarketing : September 2012
8 Agri Marketing September 2012 BASF MEDIA SUMMIT "Innovation as a Path to Sustain- ability" was the theme of the recent BASF Agricultural Solutions Media Summit, held in Chicago last summer. BASF showcased pipeline developments across many research disciplines including solutions for challenging weed control, such as recently launched herbicides with Kixor herbicide technology, and Engenia herbicide for dicamba tolerant crop systems, which is expected to be launched in 2014. Also highlighted were new products from the Xemium family including Priaxor fungicide for row crops and Merivon fungicide for specialty crops. Shown are panelists Kyle Tom, of Tom Farms, Warsaw, IN; Paul Rea, VP/U.S. Crop Protection, BASF; Kip Tom, Tom Farms, and Christoph Pelletier, Food Futurist and Author.

The Monsanto Student Services Wing is home to key offices serving students, including student services, career services, study-abroad, global agriculture, and marketing and recruitment. The Monsanto Student Services Wing also includes a welcome center for prospective students and families to learn more about the college, its 24 majors and plentiful career opportunities. MONSANTO STUDENT SERVICES WING Western Producer William DeKay's above photo was named photo of the year. Here's what he had to say about it: "The farm mechanic peering around the truck lights caught my attention. There was potential for a good photo. Like many good mechanics, I think he was listening as well as looking. "It had been a hot, dry day that was now rapidly cooling under the clear prairie sky. The sun had just set and the light was a deep azure. Some call this the blue hour. "I think good photographs are around us all the time. Getting into that zone of creativity can be a challenge. It can be emotional as well as physical. So intent was I in photographing the moment between man and machines that I did not see the chaff as it twirled and glowed. "It's been said that seeing what is invisible means seeing what to write. I'm sure this also applies to making a photograph." MARRONE BUILDS NEW PLANT Marrone Bio Innovations Inc. (MBI) recently broke ground to it expand its manufacturing facility in Bangor, MI.
