The Trial

BASF has a long-standing history in developing market-leading chemistry to protect wheat crops against major disease, so as you’d expect, we’re strong believers in our Xemium® fungicides, Adexar® and Librax®*. So much so, we have been willing to put our time, technology and investment where our mouth is. In other words, we’ve tested them in labs and in plot trials; now we’re prepared to prove it in the real world. With that in mind, this year, we asked 50 farmers to take part on their own farm, under their own conditions and test our products, against any other SDHI.

The data from each of these trials has been supplied and subject to analysis by using cutting edge Agronomics technology by our independent industry partners, ADAS and AgSpace to ensure unique scientific credibility.

In 2018, we invited 50 farmers to test our products against any SDHI on their own farms. The results are now in. You can see all the results from the trials here and discover how BASF can help you be more certain.
