RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C.--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Four Midwestern corn and soybean
growers will tell their crop management stories this year as part of the 2010 BASF Crop Protection Top Plot series.
The high-yield growers will each appear in a sequence of videos throughout the 2010 growing season. Using both
past experience and expectations of this year’s season, they will share advice, tools and tips on how to get the most

While these growers have been leveraging the disease control and Plant Health power of Headline® fungicide for

plans for achieving high yield and quality crops.
Top Plot growers to be showcased include:

Hartz has seen yield increases of 50-100 percent using Headline on corn acres and consistently pushes the
