5 Innovation Unique Chemistry Wide range of crop uses Broad-Spectrum Broadleaf Activity 70+ of the toughest broadleaves including ALS, triazine, and glyphosate resistant biotypes Burndown, Soil Activity and Desiccation Uses One of the most flexible and versatile herbicide technologies on the market today

6  Applied to over 10 million acres in 2010  Largest herbicide launch in 2 decades  Providing value to the channel and farmer Success in 2010

7 Sunflower Desiccation and Harvest Aid NDSU weed scientists extensive years of replicated research trials Desiccation trials on timing, rate, adjuvant trials NDSU Fargo, Carrington, Minot Encouraging and positive results to move a Sharpen desiccation label for sunflower forward

8 Field Test Results Sunflower Desiccation and Harvest Aid Sharpen Provides Thorough Preharvest Desiccation Gramoxone Inteon ™ SharpenCheck NDSU Trial 2009 Prosper, ND7 DAT

9 Sunflower Desiccation and Harvest Aid NDSU weed scientists extensive years of replicated research trials Desiccation trials on timing, rate, adjuvant trials Fargo, Carrington, Minot Encouraging and positive results to move a Sharpen desiccation label for sunflower forward 2009, the label was too late for any use, again research results very encouraging

10 Sunflower Desiccation and Harvest Aid 2010 first major use season Commercial applicators / growers excited to use Sharpen for very friendly use product and not a RUP

11 Field Test Results Sunflower Desiccation and Harvest Aid 10 DAT Thief River Falls, MN Sept 2010

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.

13 Sharpen Sunflower Desiccation Critical Success Factors Water Volume More is better Label revised from 3 gpa to 5 gpa Adjuvant 1 pt/A or MSO based 0.75 pt/A lb/100 gal or gal 28% UAN/100gal Application Timing Label allows application at physiological maturity If applied prior to PM, it will take longer to desiccate

14 Sharpen Sunflower Desiccation Ongoing Research Small Plot Replicated Trials NDSU Fargo, Carrington, and Minot Evaluate adjuvant rates with and without glyphosate tankmix Evaluate application timing Aerial Application Split Field Trials Evaluate various oil adjuvant rates Fifteen locations scattered throughout North Dakota, South Dakota, and NW Minnesota
