Down on the Farm
- In France, a BASF interactive training tool “Educ’phyto” showcases best practice in crop protection use.

We help farmers to become more knowledgeable.
- Container caps with prominent, easy-to-understand symbols and pictograms.

We encourage farmers to read the instructions before using our products.
Back to School
- Training on Good Farming Practices run by the French Crop Protection Association.

We raise awareness of the use of responsible practices both on the farm and in the field.
Right on Target
- BASF’s OPTIDOSE improves the quality of application by using targeted spraying.
- It takes into account the size and density of grapevines in different vineyards in France (Beaujolais, Cognac and Alsace).
- BASF cooperates in this program with the French Wine Institute.
We help protect the environment.
- Each year, malaria causes over one million deaths.
- BASF’s INTERCEPTOR® malaria nets – recommended by the World Health Organisation – are an effective way to combat the disease.
- Easy to use, odourless, and long-lasting – effective up to 4 years and 20 washes.
- As the nets do not need constant impregnation with the insecticide, unnecessary human exposure is avoided.
- Independent studies show an up to 60 per cent reduction in the number of malaria cases hospitalised.
We help to improve people’s lives.
