BASF To Continue CROP Protection Investments

Published in the January 2009 Issue Published online: Jan 27, 2009

BASF Crop Protection plans to invest more than $225 million in additional capacity to meet the growing demand for key crop protection products in the coming years.

The two-year expansion project will increase capacity at production facilities in Germany, France, Brazil and the United States for top-selling active ingredients such as F 500, boscalid, fipronil and metazachlor.

This sum is on top of the base investment of around $135 million for 2008, which includes production capacity expenditures for BASF's new herbicide KixorTM. 
The majority of this new capacity will become available in 2010 at the latest.
