BASF is committed to sustainable agriculture that combines high productivity and protection of natural resources. Against this backdrop, the BASF Farm Sustainability Network project was launched in 2013. It aims specifically to boost biodiversity in intensively utilized agricultural landscapes nationwide. The objective is to preserve as much productive agricultural land as possible.The Federal Plant Variety Office (Bundessortenamt) is responsible for granting Plant Breeders’ Rights (PBR) and National Listing of varieties and thus supports manifold activities to promote plant breeding and biological diversity. PBR protect plant breeders’ intellectual property and promotes plant breeding and breeding progress achieved in agriculture and horticulture. A breeder or discoverer of a new variety can apply for PBR for new varieties from the entire plant kingdom.
