Maria Quintero, Labormitarbeiterin,  kontrolliert den Erfolg von neuen Wirkstoffen in Pflanzenschutzmitteln. BASF forscht hier  an neuen Wirkstoffen für innovative Pflanzenschutzmittel der Zukunft. Ziel ist es die Konzentration der Testsubstanzen zu verringern – umso die Böden belastungsfreier zu bewirtschaften.

Lab employees Maria Quintero and Timo Striebinger evaluate the success of new active ingredients in crop protection products. Here, BASF is conducting research on new active ingredients for future innovative crop protection products. The aim is to reduce the concentration of the test substances so that farming has less impact on the soil.

BASF develops innovative products and services that make an important contribution to sustainable agriculture. Would you like to join our highly motivated team in developing solutions for future-oriented and sustainable agriculture?

Then start your career with us and apply for the START IN Agro Germany trainee program. We gladly welcome real natural talent who can combine communication and sales strengths with well-founded agricultural expertise.

The 24-month trainee program consists of several practical assignments lasting roughly two to three months each at our Limburgerhof site and in our German sales regions. It optimally prepares you for your future position, giving you an ideal overview of all of the business processes that are relevant to or touch on sales.

Alongside the sales employees you will get to know all customer groups and support them in their sales and advice tasks.

Involvement in projects with our motivated team and support for analyzing and assessing the plant protection market are your contribution to our success and to sustainable agriculture.

For START IN Agro Germany, we are looking for candidates who have completed a bachelor’s or master’s degree at a university of applied science or regular university with good grades in agriculture or a comparable subject, focusing on crop protection. Initial experience from relevant internships is also to your advantage.

We place particular value on

  • Strong communication and team skills
  • Creative will and the ability to act goal-oriented
  • A good command of German and English
  • Proficiency in using standard IT application

The program focuses on sales-oriented training and you will work on projects and working groups with different specialist units. This gives you e.g. valuable insight into marketing, PR work & sustainability, strategy & processes, and technology & registration.

From the very start and in every phase of deployment you will have an experienced mentor at your side. You will also take part in unit-specific training (e.g. sales training, work-life management). Organized meetings within the trainee community enable you to make contacts and quickly establish your personal network.
