The installation of this center required an investment of 188 million Argentine Pesos on a field of 65 hectares, with offices of 1,100 square meters, and a laboratory with the highest standards in biosafety measures for research and development of seeds and phytosanitary products.

The Rojas Technological Development Center completes the network of centers that BASF already has in Tucumán, Presidente Roque Sáenz Peña in Chaco, Tandil in the province of Buenos Aires and San Jerónimo in the province of Santa Fe.

“The opening of this new center demonstrates BASF's commitment to Argentina, a strategic country for food production globally, and consequently for us due to the relevance of its agricultural industry and the capacity for innovation of its producers. We are reinforcing our presence with an investment that will allow us to carry out research and development projects for solutions connected to the producer’s needs. We provide local, regional, and global knowledge, together with the farmer’s experience,” said Gustavo Portis, Director of the BASF's Solutions for Agriculture division.


The center adds one more agricultural environment to its research and development network in Argentina, increasing the geographical, soil and climate variety with the richness of the northeast of Buenos Aires, where it will be possible to conduct the development of solutions and technologies tailored to the needs of the market and producers.

“The Rojas Technological Development Center is the first BASF station globally that was born integrated to connect our solutions to the producer in all the links of their production systems throughout the campaign. From the beginning, it was thought and designed so that seeds and phytosanitary products, machinery and digital solutions, research projects and field resources are connected to each other. It has the particularity that all the solutions are researched and developed simultaneously and jointly,” Portis affirmed.
