    Exclusive Partnership with AgSync

    AgSync Improves Applicator Productivity

    The AgSync system - an easy-to-use online software program - makes the application of crop protection products more efficient by closing the communication gap between the retailer and the aerial applicator. The intuitive AgSync software does everything necessary to make the aerial applicator and retail ag facility more efficient, from creating and exporting shape files, to placing orders, tracking, viewing, scheduling, and mission planning with the pilot.

    NAAA/BASF Agricultural Aviation Scholarship Program
    Administered by the NAAA, this scholarship program is made possible through an educational grant from BASF. The goal of the scholarship is to bring new pilots into Agricultural Aviation and help fund their training. Each applicant must be sponsored by an NAAA Operator, and scholarship recipients must use the proceeds for flight training or agricultural coursework at a university, college, community college, or other institution of higher learning.

    Environmental Stewardship

    BASF Supports Aerial Applicators’ Commitment to Protect the Environment
    It’s our environment; we live here, too. Many conscientious applicators are working to minimize or eliminate the environmental impact of their professional actions.

    As the public becomes aware of the industry’s stewardship efforts, public complaints have dropped significantly. It’s working.

    BASF supports and participates in these stewardship activities with research on stewardship issues and techniques.

    What’s more, the BASF Stewardship Team maintains an active government liaison to make sure state regulators are aware of stewardship programs. In a number of instances, we’ve provided no-cost support for investigations of specific reports.

    Part of the BASF Stewardship Commitment
    BASF is and always has been deeply committed to the environment — because our future, as well as yours, depends upon responsible environmental stewardship.

    The Website is a central location of unbiased information on environmental stewardship that is maintained by a university collective called The Center for Integrated Pest Management. BASF is pleased to support this organization and its goals.

    If you have a question or a situation involving any BASF Crop Protection product, call us at 1-800-832-HELP.

    Operation S.A.F.E.

    BASF supports Operation S.A.F.E. – Self-regulating Application and Flight Efficiency – to help pilots ensure their equipment is delivering accurate applications. Spray-pattern and droplet-size testing helps you set up your aircraft for safe operation.

    See the "BASF Sponsors NAAA" section for a list of state and regional ag associations.
