    Farming & Crop Protection Biodiversity & Agriculture

    Biodiversity and Agriculture

    Farmers work on the ‘front line’ with nature and the environment. They are more than aware that the protection of ecosystems will benefit them and others in the long-term. In this regard, halting the loss of biodiversity is one of the most important tasks for farmers and landowners.

    As the world’s largest chemical company, BASF has been involved with the protection of ecosystems and halting the loss of biodiversity for decades now. Below, we provide you with comprehensive information about our research and our projects in this field and would highly recommend our topic brochure on "Biodiversity and agriculture" as well as the two more detailed paper by the European Landowner Organization (ELO) and the European Crop Protection Association (ECPA) in our Publications section.
