Bayer Announces Updates to 2021 Bayer PLUS Rewards Program and Grower Financing

November 18, 2020

Bayer will incorporate updates to grower programs to extend the range of eligible products, respond to member needs and protect the future of the program.

(ST. LOUIS, Nov. 19, 2020) – Effective immediately, Bayer is updating the 2021 Bayer PLUS Rewards program to include recently launched products – XtendiMax® with VaporGrip® Technology, Delaro® Complete Fungicide and Huskie® FX Herbicide – as well as adjusting rewards levels to ensure the longevity of this critical program for our grower customers. These three products, along with Roundup® Brand Agricultural Herbicides, have been added to the 2021 Bayer Crop Protection Grower Finance Program.

“In developing the Bayer PLUS Rewards program, we set out to provide our customers with the opportunity to earn rewards on a wide range of high-quality agronomic products, while ensuring it was underpinned by a sustainable financial model,” said Josh VanDeWalle, Bayer PLUS Lead. “We believe that these changes will provide increased value for growers by continuing to expand our portfolio of offerings, over the long term.”

In light of the recent EPA approval of XtendiMax® with VaporGrip® Technology,1 this low-volatility dicamba product will now be offered within the Roundup® Brand Agricultural Herbicides/XtendiMax® Incentives category of Bayer PLUS Rewards.

As previously announced, Bayer PLUS members have access to a new category for 2021 called partner products featuring Valent®, which can unlock an additional $1/A incentive on eligible Roundup® purchases.2

Bayer recently launched Delaro® Complete Fungicide, the company’s first corn and soybean fungicide to offer three modes of action (MOAs) in the U.S.

Cereal growers can also look forward to the new Huskie® FX Herbicide with three powerful herbicide groups in one formulation. Both products are included in the Product Portfolio Incentive category of Bayer PLUS Rewards.

XtendiMax®, Roundup® Brand Agricultural Herbicides, Delaro® Complete and Huskie® FX have also been added to the 2021 Bayer Crop Protection Grower Finance Program . This program allows growers access to fixed 0% financing3 that can increase purchasing power with payment terms that fit members’ needs.

Recently announced enhancements to the 2021 Bayer PLUS Rewards program include access to a free one-year subscription to the Climate FieldView™ Platform, a $99 value, for new and existing members when growers connect their Bayer PLUS and FieldView™ accounts. Members also have 24/7 access to the online grower portal to see eligible purchase history and request rewards checks with ease, as well as the updated Bayer PLUS Rewards Incentive Calculator.

With these latest updates and the 2021 program enhancements, Bayer is confident that the 2021 Bayer PLUS Rewards program will continue to offer retailers and growers the value they need, all season long.
