Luke Veren is always looking for something new that can help him stay ahead on his corn and soybean farm in central Iowa. So when his BASF innovation specialist asked him to trial a new fungicide, he was immediately on board. Seeing the results of Veltyma® fungicide up close has only strengthened his belief that fungicides should be a planned pass in every crop protection plan.

Join Max Armstrong and BASF in the video series, "Plan Smart, Grow Smart" as Max visits with growers across the country and gets their inside story on the season. See how BASF teams with each grower to plan the season and address potential issues as they come during the year. You’ll learn about specific practices growers are using for the latest growing season — tried and true as well as brand new.

New videos will be posted throughout the year, so be sure to check back often for more stories from the field.
