FMC Announces Farming with Authority® Sweepstakes Winners


PHILADELPHIA – A total of 55 winners have been selected in the Farming with Authority® Sweepstakes hosted by FMC Corporation. The five grand prize winners include:  Gile Guscette of Wimbledon, N.D.; Joe Sims of Osborne, Kan.; Kurt Heun of Lena, Ill.; Leslie Bruntz of Oxford, Neb.; and Mike Mickelson of Argyle, Iowa.

This spring, retailers and growers were invited to go online to share their experiences with Authority herbicide for a chance to win one of five $1,000 Tractor Supply Co.® gift cards. In addition, 50 second place winners were selected to win $100 Tractor Supply Co. gift cards.

“Throughout the sweepstakes, we received great comments and feedback about Authority herbicide from growers and retailers,” said FMC Product Manager Matt Foster.  “This feedback directly aligns with our research to show this product is in fact a solution for growers.”

Whether applied in the spring or in the fall as a part of a comprehensive burndown and preemergence program, the Authority line of herbicides can help manage weed resistance and provide long-lasting residual control on tough broadleaf weeds that rob crops of vital nutrients, sunlight and water. Using Authority brands helps soybean fields to start clean and stay clean, allowing for flexibility, convenience and optimized yield potential. 

“I am surprised to hear that I am one of the grand prize winners,” said Sims, a retailer in North Central Kansas. “Our growers have been using Authority to control tough weeds such as marestail and pigweed.”
