The pre-Commodity Classic BASF event for 2016 was the Science Behind Living Acres. Held at the New Orleans Audubon Butterfly Garden Insectarium, the event featured a closer look at biodiversity with research and guidance from BASF to help cultivate a habitat for monarchs alongside modern agriculture.
During the Commodity Classic, BASF introduced Maglis, an online agricultural platform designed to help farmers manage crops more effectively and efficiently. In addition, BASF celebrated 10 years of helping the agriculture industry #GrowSmart by joining with commodity organizations to award scholarships to students pursuing agricultural careers. And the BASF exhibit featured lots of butterflies and a John Deere Gator giveaway.
