Working Together

Every single day, BASF field reps hop in their trucks, drive down dusty or muddy roads and talk to growers. It’s nothing new. We’re proud to say we have 400 reps in the field at any given time—from coast to coast. Why? Because we want every farmer who buys BASF products to have access to a “real” person who can help them get the most out of our products and ultimately have the best impact on their yield.

One of the biggest challenges facing farmers today is keeping new strains of weeds from limiting their yields. Until this year, they did not have an effective technology to help them control this problem.
