Farming and Crop Protection 

For the love of farming, the Biggest Job on Earth

Farming is the backbone of civilization, providing sustenance, employment, and stability for communities across the globe. From the ancient times when humans first began cultivating crops, to the modern era of advanced technology and innovative agricultural practices, farming remains the cornerstone of our existence. Farmers are the unsung heroes who toil day and night to ensure that our plates are filled, and our communities thrive.

 

We, at BASF, recognize and support the efforts of our farmers, appreciating the immense impact they have on our well-being and the sustainable future of our country and our planet. We believe that farming is the biggest job on Earth, and it’s the love of farming that motivates us to constantly push the boundaries of present to seek innovative solutions for the future.
