There’s no one way to grow rice.

One thing we all agree on is that managing weeds and resistance over time is just as intensive as growing rice during the season.


From planting to harvest and everything in between, BASF helps rice growers achieve success in their fields through agronomic insights and tools that deliver reliable performance year after year. That’s why BASF has been your rice partner for generations.


Whether you’re trying something new or relying on experience, local BASF advisors are there to offer local understanding and a broad portfolio of rice solutions to help you fully maximize your technology, get stable yield performance, manage resistance, and preserve the quality of your fields.

Watch our Rice in 2024: Resistance, Best Management Practices and Stewardship webinar held earlier this year on your schedule. We’re sure you’ll find the information useful and informative.
