    Sustainability - moving forward with farming – the biggest job on earth

    Healthy and nutritious food is vital for our general health and well-being. However, the world is facing the challenge of feeding a growing population with finite resources. The farmer as food producer plays an increasingly important role in today’s society. That is why for us farming is the biggest job on earth.


    For more than 100 years, BASF Crop Protection has delivered continuous innovation to farming, not only for food but also for feed and fiber production. We are proud of our contribution to protecting and enhancing crop yields, as well as to protecting homes and stored produce.

    BASF and farmers collaborate together to advance sustainable agriculture. We work with farmers to protect the land they hold in trust for future generations and to meet the evolving expectations of society. We do this with conviction, passion. and a strong commitment:

    • We pledge to enable farmers to grow more quality food, more efficiently. We will do so by investing in and providing more of the solutions farmers need.
    • We pledge to support farmers to make a better life for themselves, their families and their communities. We will do this by providing access to innovative farming expertise, know-how, services and technologies.
    • We pledge to never compromise on safety. We will provide the information and know-how that farmers need to use our products and services responsibly, allowing them to operate in a safe environment and to produce safe food, feed and fiber.
    • Productive agriculture needs a healthy environment. In everything we do, we will play our part in caring for the environment and leaving a positive legacy for future generations.

    We know that there is more to do. We will move forward together. By farmers, with farmers and for farmers.
