Leaders in their fields

Discover three proven powerhouses, only from BASF.


A unique combination of two active ingredients immediately protects the whole plant against the broadest spectrum of above- and below-ground pests, including up to two generations of plant-parasitic nematodes.

This versatile insecticide seed treatment partners with a seed’s traits to deliver healthier roots and more uniform stands, helping high-value crops thrive regardless of growing conditions.


Systiva® is the first and only seed-applied fungicide to control early foliar disease in a range of crops, including wheat and barley.

Lasting through the first foliar spray, Systiva® promotes early vigor and improves plant health while enabling growers to optimize farm management.

*Sistiva® in South America.


Backed by hundreds of field trials and years of use on millions of hectares, ILEVO® is the first and only seed treatment that protects against two of soybeans’ most potent yield robbers. 

ILEVO® works fast against soybean cyst nematode (SCN) and Sudden Death Syndrome (SDS) – even before symptoms are visible – to limit unpredictable damage and set the stage for peak yield potential.
