BASF acquires ZedX
BASF has signed an agreement to acquire ZedX Inc., a leader in the development of digital agricultural intelligence. Headquartered in Bellefonte, Pennsylvania, ZedX’s expertise lies in the development of agronomic weather, crop, and pest models that rapidly translate data into insights for more efficient agricultural production. With this planned acquisition, BASF says it will strengthen its digital farming footprint and further invests in helping growers take advantage of big data generated in farming and beyond.
Weather conditions, soil temperature, wind speed – all of these factors can influence the performance of crop protection products. By acquiring ZedX, BASF says they will be able to help farmers use their resources more efficiently and sustainably.
The acquisition is expected to be completed within four weeks. Products and solutions from ZedX will soon be available to all key markets.
