BASF has launched Seltima, an innovative fungicide that supports the efficient production of high-quality rice, for farmers in Thailand.

The special encapsulation technology contained in Seltima ensures a controlled release of its powerful active ingredient directly on the plant leaf surface. This allows farmers to benefit from strong, long-lasting control of rice blast disease and improved plant health, while preserving the health of the aquatic environment.

Seltima is part of BASF’s AgCelence brand, a portfolio of premium products that delivers benefits that go above and beyond crop protection. In the case of Seltima, these benefits include improved crop appearance, increased plant vitality and stress tolerance, and enhanced nitrogen efficiency. This translates into higher marketable yield and grain quality for farmers who use Seltima.

More than 200 key business partners and farmers attended today’s launching ceremony. “We know that farmers have the biggest job on earth – to grow more safe, healthy, nutritious food to meet the needs of the world’s growing population,” said Petrus Ng, BASF Managing Director of Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, and Myanmar. “BASF is committed to helping farmers in Thailand and across Asia Pacific. Solutions like Seltima offer farmers better outcomes for their crop, which ultimately helps to improve their quality of life. Today, farmers in Thailand join growers in China, India, Indonesia and Vietnam, who are benefitting from this innovative technology.”

BASF aims to provide innovations that can help boost Thai farmers’ income. Seltima fungicide is the company’s latest addition to its growing portfolio of solutions for Thai rice growers – which already includes Tetris herbicide for weed grasses, Basta herbicide for control of weedy rice, and LeSAK 3G Insecticide – for stemborer, thrips and leaf folder.
