Best Practice Example for Responsible Use

Down on the Farm

  • In France, a BASF interactive training tool “Educ’phyto” showcases best practice in crop protection use.
  • Features a virtual farm – where the farmer has to identify possible risks within a certain period as well as a series of 20 explanatory mini-videos.

We help farmers to become more knowledgeable.

Easy-to-Understand Packaging

  • Container caps with prominent, easy-to-understand symbols and pictograms.
  • Transcends language and literacy barriers.
  • Features useful, easily accessible information, e.g. contact details in case of an emergency.
  • Colour coding to improve stock logistics.
  • Recyclable material.

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.
  • 10,000 farmers benefit yearly.
  • Distributor network helps cascade information.
  • Forum for sharing best practices.
  • Features information on special farming equipment.

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.

Fighting Malaria

  • 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.
