On Target Application Academy

As new and advanced crop protection products and spray technologies come to market – and weed resistance continues to challenge growers across the country – it’s simple to say that today’s weed management environment is becoming more complex.  Developed by Dr. Bob Wolf, Wolf Consulting & Research LLC, TeeJet Technologies and BASF for growers who self-apply herbicides, the On Target Application Academy is a one-of-a-kind educational opportunity to provide growers extensive hands-on training of today’s herbicide application best practices.

The On Target Application Academy educates growers on new application technologies, plant biology and advancements in new product chemistries to help them achieve the most effective and sustainable weed control possible  - as well as help mitigate spray drift, which is a continuous area of focus for the agricultural industry.

Growers walk away from the On Target Application Academy with a deeper understanding of new technologies to ensure on target applications, better train employees, maximize yields, protect input investments, and protect lifelong investments in their crops.

The Academy in 2015

On Target Application Academy events will be held throughout the year all over the country at industry and state events. The On Target Application Academy is free, about two hours in length and will cover an array of topics including:
