Perfecting Potatoes Together

Potatoes fuel the nation.

We believe that this essential, versatile crop deserves our investment; in terms of time, expertise, knowledge, and protection.

Our exciting new initiative serves as a platform for everyone in the potato growing industry to come together to share combined experience, know-how and passion for developing and perfecting healthy potato crops.

After a year of political and economic uncertainty, not-withstanding the challenges of COVID-19, BASF are committed to helping the potato industry by unifying growers, industry experts and BASF professionals who really understand the issues being faced, and how we might solve them together.

Our collaborative and holistic approach will provide solutions that combine culture and chemistry to help UK growers unlock the potential - and the profits - in their potato crops.

Let's unite in Perfecting Potatoes Together.
