Summary

Announcement of the launch of a new herbicide delivery system by Monsanto. The "mini-bulk shuttle" system solves the farmer's problem of empty agrichemical container disposal. The shuttle container is owned by Monsanto, but the Roundup CT inside is owned by the farmer. Once spraying is complete, the shuttle is returned to Monsanto to be reused.

This article contains a photograph of Brian Benson, Monsanto WA manager, with the new shuttle system.
