FMC Announces Authority Minute Tailgate Blitz Sweepstakes Winner


PHILADELPHIA – August 21, 2013 – FMC Agricultural Solutions announces the winner of its Authority Minute Tailgate Blitz Sweepstakes. Iowa Retailer Ben Low will cheer on his team in style this fall as the grand prize winner of the ultimate tailgate prize package.

From December 20 to June 30, more than 2,500 growers, retailers and consultants visited to learn the latest in weed management from experts as part of the Authority Minute exclusive video series. By viewing episodes online, they became eligible for a chance to win one of 16 prize packages.

“We think of growers as our partners and try to connect them with the products and information they need to be successful,” said Paul Redhage, FMC Agricultural Solutions North America strategic communications manager. “Authority Minute provides that information, along with the chance to be a winner, allowing our partners to get the most out of their soybeans.”

As the grand prize winner, Low will receive a complete tailgate prize package valued at approximately $5,000. Items include a Bose® portable sound system, a tailgate tent, a YETI® Tundra® cooler, an XL Big Green Egg® grill, Omaha Steaks® gift card, four chairs, a grilling tool set, table and games. Five first place and 10 second place winners will be awarded prize packages totaling $10,000 in combined value.

“Growers don’t need an incentive to educate themselves about crop protection, but our Authority Minute viewers deserve the chance to better enjoy the tailgate tradition,” said Redhage. “With each episode, our host, Jake Turner, connects growers with the expert analysis and best practice information they need to make sound agronomic decisions and keep providing the food we enjoy, at the big game and everywhere else.”

Authority Minute by FMC features Host Jake Turner as he travels the country talking with expert sources about best practices and weed control in soybeans. Previous episodes have highlighted topics such as pest scouting,tractor safety and weed disaster survival. At any time, viewers can ask questions online and the appropriate FMC representative will respond.
