Water

Around 70% of global average freshwater withdrawal is currently used for agriculture. It varies between less than 10% in humid industrialized countries (e.g. Germany) and >90% in arid, low industrialized countries (e.g. Sudan). (FAO Aquastat, 2019)1

Using and managing the world's limited resources efficiently is in society’s best interest. As a leading chemical company and agricultural solutions provider, BASF is committed to the protection of water resources and its responsible and sustainable use.
