Sharpen has a rate range from 1 to 3 ounces per acre. 1 ounce is the burndown rate across a wide range of crops. The higher rates can be used in corn for longer residual. Sharpen offers approximately 7-14 days of residual per ounce of Sharpen.Pulses = chickpeas & dry field peas4
5 Broad-Spectrum Broadleaf Activity InnovationUnique ChemistryWide range of crop usesBroad-Spectrum Broadleaf Activity70+ of the toughest broadleaves including ALS, triazine, and glyphosate resistant biotypesBurndown, Soil Activity and Desiccation Uses One of the most flexible and versatile herbicide technologies on the market todayWe and our customers are excited about the registration and launch of Kixor. Kixor is truly a unique chemistry. It is the only pyrimidinedione chemistry available in the U.S. market. With its broad range of crops and few rotational crop restrictions, Kixor is one of the most flexible and versatile broadleaf herbicides on the market. A family of 4 products powered by Kixor is being developed based on specific market needs for better broadleaf weed control.Kixor will provide control of all major annual broadleaf weeds including ALS, triazine, and glyphosate resistant biotypes.Kixor demonstrates both foliar burndown and soil residual activity.Kixor is 21st Century Technology for the 21st Century Farmer.5
6 Success in 2010 Applied to over 10 million acres in 2010 Largest herbicide launch in 2 decadesProviding value to the channel and farmer
7 Sunflower Desiccation and Harvest Aid NDSU weed scientists extensive years of replicated research trialsDesiccation trials on timing, rate, adjuvant trials NDSU Fargo, Carrington, MinotEncouraging and positive results to move a Sharpen desiccation label for sunflower forward

12 Summary of Challenges Sunflower Desiccation and Harvest Aid BASF has not seen these challenges in earlier 2010 successful applications nor in prior years of research.BASF logged alleged concerns on Sharpen Herbicide Performance in Sunflower Desiccation, and worked quickly with growers and applicators to reach resolution.Based on the trends observed from the challenges reported, some clear Critical Success Factors emerged.
