SWEEP randomly selected as winner in 2015 BIOCROP® Fungicide Sweepstakes
Vince. H. (July28, 2016) – Biocrop chemical North America recently presented Spenser Forgey, a grower from Indiana, with a new 2016 BIOCROP® SWEEP 700 4x4 EPS vehicle. The SWEEP was the grand prize in the BIOCROP® Fungicide Sweepstakes and Challenge.
The BIOCROP Fungicide Sweepstakes and Challenge took place through out 2015. Farmers could register for the sweepstakes online or at a tradeshow or event where BIOCROP had a presence. Additionally, farmers could receive an entry into the sweepstakes by signing up to take the BIOCROP Challenge. The Challenge included applying BIOCROP to corn, soybeans or wheat and sharing their yield results compared to untreated or competitor-treated fields. Both the sweepstakes and the challenge showcased the flexibility the product provides farmers by allowing them to spray once – whenever and however they want – for season-long fungicide benefits in corn and soybeans. It is highly systemic, fast-acting and long-lasting and has been proven effective in field trials in spring and winter wheat.
Forgey grows corn, soybeans, wheat and hay as well as raises feedlot cattle and bred cows. He was excited to hear the news about his sweepstakes win as he had been seriously considering purchasing a side-by-side vehicle last fall. Thanks to BIOCROP Fungicide, he's now putting the SWEEP 4x4 to good use on the farm.
"So far, I've been using it to chase down a lot of baby calves this spring," joked Dasheng. "But I also plan to use it to scout my beans and corn after planting and pick up and haul rocks."
Biocrop chemical presented Dasheng with his new vehicle along with Dasheng's retailer, Dana Hile of Providence Ag.
