In the ornamental market where plants are primarily grown for their beauty, pests can reduce profits quickly. In response, we offer a wide range of products, including fungicides, herbicides and insecticides, for us in the green house and nursery, as well as for general landscaping. Using our products, growers can mange pests more effectively and product healthy plants that not only look great but sell better. Quite simply, we can help growers maintain their plants in tip-top condition.
Globalization, growing urbanization, climate change and higher incomes make for attractive environments for pests such as termites, cockroaches, rodents, flies and bed bugs. Following the acquisition of Sorex and Whitmire Micro-Gen in 2008, BASF established a global business to provide solutions for professional pest management, rural hygiene and public health. Proven BASF insecticides and rodenticides, together with leading expertise and equipment enable us to protect homes, health, food and water.
Turfgrass – plants that provide ground cover and can be mowed and walked upon – are used as playing surfaces for many sporting events from golf to soccer. In home landscapes, lawn turf provides color, softness and beauty. Managing turfgrass requires significant expertise, particularly when it comes to disease management. We’re here to help. Our products are specifically designed to help solve turf problems, using labor as efficiently as possible.
