Andrew Fansler didn’t grow up on a farm, but he always wanted to be a grower. Now he’s living his dream, growing corn and soybeans. His operation in St. Paul, Indiana, is in the path of suburban sprawl, which creates challenges, but also opportunities.

Join Max Armstrong and BASF in the video series, "Plan Smart, Grow Smart" as Max visits with growers across the country and gets their inside story on the season. See how BASF teams with each grower to plan the season and address potential issues as they come during the year. You’ll learn about specific practices growers are using for the latest growing season — tried and true as well as brand new.

New videos will be posted throughout the year, so be sure to check back often for more stories from the field.
