BASF Professional Vegetation Management kicks off 2009 QVM Project Habitat Awards program

Vegetation professionals can submit projects now through the end of September

RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, NC, August 4, 2009 – Professional vegetation managers across the country can submit vegetation projects for the fourth-annual Quality Vegetation Management™ (QVM) Project Habitat™ awards, sponsored by BASF Professional Vegetation Management. This awards program spotlights vegetation management projects that make positive environmental changes —whether it is protecting endangered species, fighting invasive weeds, supporting industry research and development, or simply improving habitat for native plants and animals.

The QVM Project Habitat<http://www.vmanswers.com/content.aspx?pid=1088> awards give land managers, owners, QVM Certified Applicators and forestry advisors national recognition for their dedication to quality vegetation management. Winners have the opportunity to work with BASF on promotional opportunities including: local publicity, written success stories, trade media articles and QVM plot signage to promote their good work.

Call for entries open through September!
Award entries are due on or before September 25, 2009, and land managers, owners and QVM Certified Applicators should begin thinking about new or existing programs and plots that demonstrate the principals and practices of QVM in action.

By involving a herbicide applicator in the discussion early on, participants can determine the project that best exemplifies Quality Vegetation Management in action. Projects must fit into one of the designated categories, including Utility, Forestry, Aquatic, Roadside, Invasive Weed Management and Specialty Vegetation Management. For more information on each category, visit www.vmanswers.com/projecthabitat<http://www.vmanswers.com/projecthabitat>.

Projects primarily developed or managed in 2009 are eligible, although ongoing projects are also acceptable. All chemical applications require participation by a QVM Certified Applicator<http://www.vmanswers.com/content.aspx?pid=1140> or can be applied by the landowner or land manager. There is no cost to enter and multiple projects from one organization are allowed, but each project should be featured in its own entry. Please see the official call for entries for rules on submissions and formats. To find a QVM Certified Applicator in your area, contact your local BASF sales specialist or visit www.vmanswers.com<http://www.vmanswers.com>.

Professionals interested in developing award-winning programs and showcasing them in front of their peers, have the opportunity to sign up to receive tips on how to develop an entry. Go to www.vmanswers.com/projecthabitat<http://www.vmanswers.com/projecthabitat> to sign up and take your project to the next level.

Get recognized by top industry media and peers
Entries will be judged on a point scale applied by representatives from the vegetation industry’s top magazines and associations, including American Tree Farm System, Land and Water, Public Works, Roads and Bridges and Rural Electric. The judges will examine each entry’s description of the problem, solution, results, evaluation of the application process and use of any partners such as cooperatives or universities. Entries that contain digital photography or digital video will receive one extra point toward the final score.

“Land managers across the country are doing great work to restore natural habitats and these awards allow us to show appreciation for their efforts,” said Brian Lish, Business Manager for the BASF ProVM Group. “This event serves as a great opportunity for vegetation management experts to meet and share their accomplishments amongst their peers, and it provides national recognition and support that will propel these companies to more great projects in the future.”
