Producing more. Conserving more. Improving lives
That’s sustainable agriculture. And that’s what Monsanto is all about.
Monsanto could not exist without farmers.
Billions of people depend upon what farmers do. And so will billions more. In the next few decades, farmers will have to grow as much food as they have in the past 10,000 years – combined.
It is our purpose to work alongside farmers to do exactly that. We do this by selling seeds, traits developed through biotechnology, and crop protection chemicals.
The Challenge: Meeting the needs of today while preserving the planet for tomorrow.
The solution: Producing more.
We are working to double yields in our core crops by 2030. These yield gains will come from a combination of advanced plant breeding, biotechnology and improved farm-management practices.
The Solution: Conserving more.
We’ve strengthened our goal of doubling crop yields by committing to doing it with one-third fewer resources such as land, water and energy per unit produced.
The Solution: Improving lives
We’re working to help farmers achieve big increases in yield and productivity. And for all the world’s farmers who raise themselves from poverty to prosperity, many more people will also prosper.
