Successful cereals farmers work hard to maximize their yields. So do we.

Cereals are one of the bedrocks of U.S. agriculture. In 2017, U.S. farmers planted wheat on nearly 45.7 million acres and barley on almost 2.4 million acres, along with 2.5 million acres of oats and nearly 6 million acres of sorghum. While a majority is grown in the Northern Plains, Plains and Pacific Northwest, cereals are planted across the country, in a wide variety of growing environments.

To operate successfully, cereal farmers need consistent quality and high yields, but weeds, pests and disease can threaten that success. A growing problem for cereal farmers is the development of resistance to commonly-used herbicides and fungicides. Fortunately, our innovative products help farmers to control these problems effectively.


Our next-generation fungicide Xemium® not only controls a broad range of fungi in cereals but also boasts a unique mobility in the whole plant, providing immediate and long-lasting protection. Used on its own or in a mixture with glyphosate, our advanced herbicide product Kixor® is applied prior to crop planting for fast and complete burndown of over 80 different weeds, including those resistant to glyphosate. BASF has traditionally led the way in the search for new active ingredients to combat fungal diseases in cultivated plants.
