BASF is investing $67 million to expand its crop protection chemical plant in Guaratinguetá, Brazil. By the end of this month, the company will expand a plant making boscalid, an active ingredient that fights diseases in crops such as canola. It will build a formulation plant for Xemium, a carboxamide-based fungicide for soybeans and other crops. And it will erect a formulation plant for Heat, a new broadleaf herbicide. The latter two initiatives will be completed next year.
