BASF Agricultural Solutions: Helping farmers do the Biggest Job on Earth.


At BASF,  we believe farming is the biggest job on earth. Calling it that is the best way to describe what farmers do day in and day out. The pests, the weeds, the diseases. The demands of the crops. Society’s rising expectations, tightening regulations. Feeding an ever-growing population. Looking after nature and the land. This pressure to succeed and the challenge of choosing the right tools and technologies to get there is a responsibility we share with all our farmers, here and across the globe.


There has never been a more challenging time in agriculture. Likewise, there has also never been a time of greater opportunity.


As we continue to explore how our products match farming’s changing dynamics, we want to make sure the agricultural community feels a high level of assurance that we’re bringing them solutions that solve their greatest challenges. With a broad portfolio of fungicides, insecticides, herbicides, seed treatments, and seeds and traits, BASF has the tools, knowledge and expertise to help farmers increase the yields and the quality of their crops. By partnering with farmers, thought leaders, and industry influencers our technologies aim to ensure that crops grow healthier, stronger, and more resistant to various stress factors.


The biggest job on earth is only getting bigger in size, scope, and, especially, responsibility. BASF is dedicated to finding answers that help farmers meet the demands of a growing population.

Grow Smart Live

Farming is the biggest job on earth. And to help support, we developed an easy-to-use tool for finding ways to invest in it.

Developing innovations that bring next-level performance to the whole acre.

A job as big as farming needs a commitment that is just as great.


We will continue to invest in researching and developing agricultural innovations at a high level. We continue to leverage our culture of innovation into on-field solutions that focus on improving outcomes in major crops, like wheat, canola, soybean, corn, cotton, rice, as well as fruits and vegetables. Within these major crops, we continue to innovate across our pipeline of seeds and traits, seed treatment, biological and chemical crop protection, and digital farming solutions, along with investing in state-of-the-art research facilities across the globe. 


With solutions launching throughout the next decade, our innovation pipeline supports not only the farmer’s immediate and future needs but also sustainably contributes to agriculture’s global impact. Our research for agricultural solutions reflects a long-term strategy that gives farmers stability in a changing world, while also allowing them to increase yield and maximize natural resources by reducing their impact.

Sustainability is at the heart of everything we do.

We strongly believe that farming is the biggest job on earth. We also understand that we have a major role to play in helping farmers deliver on their promises and create a positive impact. To shape a sustainable future for farming, we must find the right balance for success—for farmers, for agriculture, and for future generations.


By 2050, an estimated 9.7 billion people will be relying on us to continue supporting those farmers who will be growing the food supply to feed a hungry planet. That is a challenge we take very seriously, and a responsibility we cannot ignore.


We are continuously introducing sustainable solutions into the market that improve quality of life and conserve resources. We are committed to innovations that can efficiently manage productivity and sustainability in agriculture, helping farmers to produce not only more but better yield while using fewer resources. 

Rising to this challenge.
