Smart Stewardship

Stewardship in farming is all about responsibility and care. Something that we, at BASF, take very seriously. Making sure that farmers are able to use our products safely around the farm and in the field, by providing access to the tools and services that are tailored to every farmer’s daily work. 

What impacts do we aim for?

Our stewardship tools and services are tailored to every farmer’s daily work. 

How do we achieve these impacts?

To protect people’s health on the farm and our environment, we provide access to tools and services such as personal protection equipment, customized training, digital solutions, and new application technologies such as drones.

Together we can achieve more

As a member of CropLife International, the plant science industry association, BASF is committed to promoting sustainable agriculture and the responsible use of plant science technologies.  Together, we aim to help farmers grow more healthy, high quality food, while ensuring the health and safety of people, communities and our planet.

As part of this, we place a high priority on product stewardship, providing the right tools and services at the right time. Stewardship drives our processes and practices, facilitating the responsible and ethical management of all our products throughout their life cycle - from discovery in the lab through to usage to disposal on the farm.  

Our Smart Stewardship approach gives farmers more peace of mind by helping make responsible decision-making in the field easier and more effective. It provides access to best-in-class tools, and services and bespoke training to promote sustainable practices and improve the working environment of everyone who works on the land.
