Strathalbyn

Site Introduction

The BASF Innovation Site at Finniss is just around the corner from Strathalbyn and 73 kms from Adelaide city. Finniss is our flagship South Australian demonstration site for the 2021 cropping season. BASF is eager to showcase our new herbicides Voraxor and Luximax, along with the new herbicide tolerant canola variety, Liberty Link. Our wheat and barley demonstrations will compare BASF’s new herbicides with industry standards, in various circumstances and in different herbicide mixes. We’ll also showcase BASF’s post emergent herbicide Frequency and new wheat, barley and canola fungicide, Revystar.
