At Monsanto, we're all about sustainable solutions. That's why we're committed to getting the public involved in a global conversation about the methods we're using in order to help grow enough food for a growing world. Ask your own questions regarding anything from honey bee health, GMOs, to sustainability in agriculture and more.
Whether it's in soybean or cotton, the Roundup Ready® Xtend Crop System will utilize herbicide-tolerant trait technologies to help maximize yield potential, weed control and quality.
In December 2015, Monsanto announced a first-of-its-kind program to introduce a model for carbon neutral crop production that will help reduce the carbon footprint of crop production.
Sustainability is a journey that presents a constant but welcome challenge: how can we push ourselves to achieve even more? How do we feed a growing planet in a changing climate?
We work to help farmers produce food in a sustainable way. We think holistically about how our food is grown so farmers have the tools they need to have better harvests - to make a plate of meats, grains, fruits and vegetables within reach for every family.

We all want nutritious food options that are grown in environmentally sustainable ways. But we have limited acres of farmland to grow that food and a finite amount of water to irrigate the crops. We need to simultaneously use our resources as efficiently as possible while also improving our land and environment in which we grow our food. The keys to doing this are the technologies we’re developing in all areas of agriculture, including: agricultural biologicals, biotechnology, crop protection, data science, and plant breeding. The promise of these tools offers a pathway to a more sustainable agriculture.
Here’s some information about what we’re doing to help advancements in each space:
We have more than 2,000 scientists working in research and development worldwide. In addition to working on these innovations, our scientists have published more than 2,000 articles in peer-reviewed journals in their respective fields over the past two decades.
