“This partnership between BASF and AgSync will bring much needed synergies to the aerial agricultural market place,” said Clay Rassi, Sales Manager for AgSync.

With sales of €3,137 million in 2007, BASF’s Crop Protection division is a leader in crop protection and a strong partner to the farming industry providing well-established and innovative fungicides, insecticides and herbicides. Farmers use these products and services to improve crop yields and crop quality.
