BASF hunting generic users
Apparently BASF is on the warpath over the use of generics on Invigor canola and Clearfield lentils. Based on the LTA agreement with the canola and seed commitment on lentils it is illegal? to use any product other than BASF products. They have been auditing farmers all over the countryside to see what products they have been using. So far they have only removed the farmer from their programming if they are using generics.
What are everyone’s thoughts on using generics when the contract you sign says you can’t. Are we abusing their research and technology by using generics on seed they have developed? Or is the use of generics a good way to keep a company honest?
