Let's bring the lab to the field

Accelerate your career and join us at BASF Innovation Center Gent!

We tackle food scarcity and help farmers thrive through innovation in plant breeding and biotechnology

Or in short, we add science to seeds. In offices, labs, greenhouses and fields. Where scientists, researchers, analysts and technicians make crops more productive, yielding, resistant to pests and diseases, and tolerant to challenging weather and climate change. Backed every step of the way by regulatory, IP, data and digital experts. Together, we produce stronger seeds for a more sustainable agriculture.

For the love of farming, the biggest job on earth

No farming, no food. It’s as simple as that. But with climate change and a growing population, it’s not easy for farmers. We need to help them in any way we can. Through science, technology and this huge wake-up call.
