    BASF Product Information Interceptor® G2

    Interceptor® G2 is the first long-lasting insecticide-treated  net (LN) containing the active ingredient chlorfenapyr in combination with alpha-cypermethrin. Chlorfenapyr is new to vector control and is the first non-pyrethroid adulticide employed on an LN. Due to its new mode of action, chlorfenapyr shows no cross resistance to other insecticide classes.

    Practical advice for water protection in agriculture (10/2011)

    As water is an essential resource for human beings and nature, it must be protected. To avoid that crop protection products enter water bodies via point pollution sources or diffuse pollution sources, protective measures at different phases are needed. In this brochure, we would like to to give recommendations of such measures.

    AgBalance - a clearer view of agricultural sustainability (11/2011)

    Acting sustainably in agriculture is a prerequisite for protecting the future of global food production and farming. Despite widespread consensus on the need for more sustainable agriculture, debate continues on what exactly that entails. BASF is convinced that it can only be achieved by considering economic, ecological and social requirements collectively.

    Registration of crop protection products: ensuring global safety (07/2010)

    The registration of crop protection products in different countries considers specific regional factors. But the main question in all cases is: How can we ensure that farmers are able to produce agricultural goods in high quality and quantity and at the same time protect consumers and the environment? In this brochure, we would like to show how this question is answered in various regions, and what role global trade plays.

    Biodiversity and agriculture (05/2010)

    Farming invariably interferes with the habitats of plants and animals. However, this does not necessarily mean that agriculture and biodiversity are incompatible. In fact, it is possible to balance the increased demand for food with the need to maintain biological diversity.This brochure takes a closer look at the relationship between farming and biodiversity. It explains why the efficient use of land will be a key factor when preserveing natural animal and plant habitats, and what role modern agricultural methods play.

    Soil Biodiversity and Agriculture

    Please note: This is not an BASF publication. Together, the European Landowner Organisation (ELO) and the European Crop Protection Association (ECPA) have produced this paper on agriculture and biodiversity as a first step to discuss concrete solutions how best to farm profitably. This brochure allows readers to gather information about global trends, legislation and policy framework, bird populations in European agricultural lands and the closely intertwined topics agriculture and biodiversity.

    Agriculture and Biodiversity Report

    Please note: This is not an BASF publication. High quality production at the lowest possible price for consumers is a good principle, but not good enough today. The environment needs to be taken account of, too. Biodiversity issues have become a major point on the international agenda. Using the best indicator for biodiversity available, the authors analyse bird population trends alongside the evolution of agriculture. Read how the delicate equation between nature, mankind and food can be balanced.

    Pesticides and biodiversity

    Please note: This is not an BASF publication. We all want a wide variety of high-quality and affordable foods available to us the year-round; we also want a prosperous countryside, and healthy and diverse ecosystems. A growing population and greater demands on agriculture presents society with one of the great challenges of the 21st century – to produce more agricultural goods from the same hectare while protecting biodiversity. Fortunately, the solution is at hand; productive agriculture is a key component in the protection of water, health, food, soil, and biodiversity.

    Pollinators and agriculture

    Please note: This is not an BASF publication. Pollinators such as the honey bee represent some of our most important species. Pollination allows plants to reproduce, provides the fruits, seeds and foliage that we eat, and much of the flora in our natural environment, gardens and parks. For thousands of years, through the domestication of the honey bee, humans and the iconic Apis mellifera, L. (Western honey bee) have together produced flowering fields, abundant fruit and vegetable crops, honey, and a variety of hive products.
