Why do sustainable agricultural innovations matter now more than ever? 

Even in the most challenging of times, few things are more important than farming. We depend on it for food, feed, fuel and fiber. It’s crucial to the world’s economy and to our very existence. By 2050, farmers will have to feed an estimated 9.7 billion people – 3 billion more than now. To do this, farmers will have to produce as much food as has been consumed in all human history, increasing productivity by 50%. At BASF, we are here to help them.

We are committed to innovations that strike the right balance between productivity and sustainability in agriculture, helping farmers to produce not only more, but better yield. We therefore focus even more on our customers' needs and bring sustainable innovations to them, with connected offers across seeds, crop protection and digital solutions, integrated into farm operations and practices. Based on our long collaborative culture and through partnership and collaboration, we are able to deliver these innovative solutions faster, and help meet growing food demand more sustainably.

In this way, we support farmers around the world to achieve better yield – yield produced in ways that are valued by society, are kind to the planet and help farmers earn a living.
