Win With Enlist winner takes home Tempo High Speed Planter

Gary Huitsing of Gadshill, Ontario Wins Grand Prise.

Dow AgroSciences, Väderstad and Farm Business Communications presented Gary Huitsing of Gadshill, Ontario with a brand new 8-row Tempo High Speed Planter on Friday, March 4. The winner was one of eight finalists who had a chance to open a seed box and find a scale model of the Tempo Planter at the giveaway event at the Dow AgroSciences exhibit at the London Farm Show in London, ON. Huitsing’s winning seed box was number 5. “Winning the planter will open up a wide range of possibilities,” says Huitsing. “We currently have a twelve-row planter and farm over 1000 acres.”

Brad Orr, President of Dow AgroSciences, thanked growers for their enthusiastic participation in the Win With Enlist contest. “We anticipated tremendous interest in this exciting combination of new technologies – the Enlist™ weed control system and the innovative high speed precision planting technology of the Tempo®. We also hoped this giveaway would have a great impact on the operation of an Ontario or Quebec grower. We’re so pleased for Mr. Huitsing.”

“We can’t wait to be in the field with Gary this spring. Right from the first pass, we know he’ll be thrilled with the speed and precision of the Tempo,” says Larry Wieler, Director of Market Development with Väderstad North America. “It’s going to be a great pleasure to watch our technology at work on another Ontario farm.”

Secondary prizes of enough Dow Seeds corn seed and Enlist Duo™ herbicide for 80 acres were also presented to two growers – Jeff Seys from Wallaceburg, Ontario and Justin Bell from Merlin, Ontario. “Our team at Dow AgroSciences looks forward to following the success of these two farms throughout the 2016 growing season,” says Marty Vermey, Enlist Portfolio Marketing Leader.

Roughly 200 people gathered to watch the grand finale of this 18-month long contest in which farmers entered via online ballots, grower events or at tradeshows. They continued to get more chances to win by participating online in bonus entries that required viewing educational videos and answering questions about the innovative technologies involved in Win With Enlist.
