Oct. 6, BASF employees and executives, community leaders and Georgia state and national elected officials gathered for a ribbon cutting for the recent expansion and investment in the BASF Sparks, Ga., seed treatment production site.
BASF invested approximately $70 million in capital improvements, which led to 30 new full-time jobs at the site. This investment illustrates the company’s long-term interest in and support of the community.
The Sparks facility produces granular and liquid fungicides and insecticides that are helping farmers protect their crops during the times they need it most.
The Sparks facility is one of seven BASF global production sites for seed treatment products. The Sparks plant produces BASF’s innovative seed treatment portfolio, including the Poncho Votivo 2.0 seed treatment system for corn and ILEVO seed treatment for soybeans.
