BASF starts biopesticide drive in Brazil
BASF is to launch two new biorational pesticides in Brazil as it seeks to widen its offering in the sector, the company’s marketing director for crop protection in Latin America Fabio Del Sistia told the business newspaper, Valor Economico, this month. The products include a biofungicide and a pheromone. The company is in the “investigation phase” to bring more such products onto the Brazilian market. “BASF sees IPM as the preferred pest control solution,” Mr Del Sistia told the newspaper.
