Fixed Wing Effective For Herbicide Application – for Oct. 11, 2010

Reading Time: < 1 minute

This letter is in follow up to an article published in the Alberta Farmer Express, September 13, 2010.

In the article titled “Herbicides on pasture work well – if applied well” one of Dow AgroSciences employees made an incorrect comment about application of our products with fixed-wing aircraft.

These comments do not reflect Dow AgroSciences position on fixed-wing aerial application. Aerial application is a key component of product application in our key crops business along with range and pasture and forestry. We support all registered aerial application including, fixed-wing and rotary aircraft.

Our broad-spectrum selective range and pasture products can be successfully applied with both aerial and ground application equipment. Choice of application equipment should be based upon the objective of the application and the characteristics of the site.

Dow AgroSciences regrets the comments made by one of our employees in this article, and we are taking action to ensure that our proper positioning on application is aligned within our teams and that this position is shared with our customers through presentations and direct communications.
