Overview of the Clearfield® Commitment for sunflowers.

The Clearfield Commitment, an agreement between the grower and BASF, is an important part of growing Clearfield sunflowers. Not only does it serve as a licence allowing the grower to access the benefits of the Clearfield trait, it also preserves the integrity of the Clearfield trait, delivering the same level of germination and vigour you’ve come to expect from the Clearfield system.

Details of the evergreen Clearfield Commitment for sunflowers.

Dedicated to improving its processes, BASF updated the Clearfield Commitment to an evergreen Commitment in 2015. That means growers who signed a Commitment in 2015 - 2021 will not be required to sign again. However, growers who did not purchase Clearfield sunflowers in the listed years will need to sign a Commitment for the 2022 season.
