Agriculture.com Staff 02/18/2010 @ 9:34am

BASF will be churning out 28 new agricultural products from now until 2013.

The firm gave crop consultants, media, and other agricultural professionals a glimpse at what it has coming down the pike at its 2010 Innovations Symposium in Grapevine, Texas.

Highlights include:

  • Nine new active ingredients from now into 2013. From these will come 28 new products.
  • Three new active ingredients will be coming in herbicides and will be used in 11 new products and product extensions. These will include a new soil-applied herbicide for crops including corn and soybeans by 2012. BASF also plans to unveil a new postemergence herbicide that can be use on corn in 2012. A new postmergence herbicide that can be used on wheat is also on tap for 2011.
  • Three new active ingredients and 11 new products in the fungicide area. Of these, a "big blockbuster" fungicide is planned for crops including corn and soybeans in 2012.
  • Dicamba-tolerant soybeans around the mid-2010s that's part of a joint-licensing agreement with Monsanto and the University of Nebraska.
  • A new insecticide for use on multiple crops in 2013.
  • A new miticide for use on multiple crops by 2013.

The expected dates are all pending regulatory approval.

BASF officials also discussed Headline AMP, its new fungicide product for 2010. This fungicide combines Headline's active ingredient -- pyraclostrobin -- with metconazole, the active ingredient in BASF's Caramba fungicide.

It will give row crop farmers a new option for a preventative and curative fungicide. BASF officials says this combination will give maximum disease protection and also give plant physiological benefits that it terms Plant Health.
