High Performing Seeds by BASF

It all starts with the seed. It’s the genesis and the livelihood of every farmer’s operation. It’s the transformation of potential to profit. And it’s one of the smallest physical representations of the life-sustaining role farmers play in feeding our world.

Seed choice is the first and most important decision that a grower will make. Our flexible hybrids and varieties are rooted in strong genetics and enhanced by trait technologies that perform against local conditions and challenges.
