BASF launched a new online educational resource,Grow Smart University, which connects growers and industry professionals with agronomic and agribusiness content. Grow Smart University offers an extensive library of farm management information, making it easier and faster to find helpful materials.
"Growers face increasingly complex situations in farming, and many look to the Web for answers," said Paul Leeland, Product Manager, BASF. "Grow Smart University helps provide necessary educational resources to make informed decisions."
Content is available in videos, e-books, industry expert webinars, educational modules and flashcards to accommodate a variety of learning-style preferences. All materials are categorized by topic, allowing visitors to delve deep into a variety of subjects. Crop-specific courses cover best practices from seed to harvest, while courses on general agricultural principles focus on whole issues, such as plant health or agribusiness. New content is uploaded regularly to keep visitors abreast of new issues and technologies in the industry.
"Grow Smart University is a tool as flexible as the growers who use it," Leeland said. "By having on-demand access to education, growers can operate on their own schedule to learn about new developments and tools to help their operation."
BASF's Grow Smart approach helps growers get the most out of every acre by combining the best partnerships, resources and risk-reduction tools to build customized plans focused on individual operations. With teamwork at its core, Grow Smart is a better way to do business.
