LUDWIGSHAFEN, GERMANY: BASF inaugurated a new greenhouse in Limburgerhof agricultural centre. The 1,250 m² large additional investment expands the existing greenhouse complex and increases research capacity for herbicides by about 25 per cent. In addition, three trial chambers have been created, which examine and look at how plants respond to certain stressors such as water and nutrient deprivation and extreme temperatures. Here products from the new growth area of ?functional crop care will be tested.

“Our researchers make not only the future of our business, but agriculture as a whole. With this advanced system, we ensure that we may continue to supply farmers with innovative and sustainable solutions,” said Markus Heldt, President, Crop Protection division, BASF.

The equipment in the new greenhouse is the latest technology, including an air-conditioned storage of seeds, potting machines and automated transport system. All steps of a research experiment can be carried out under one roof.
