Farmers around the world are innovators, using technology to help change the way they grow crops. As a company, Monsanto is dedicated to improving the lives of these innovators. Our job is to help them stay ahead.
We play a role in delivering the best seeds for farmers. The seed purchase is perhaps the most important decision a farmer makes. Unlocking the yield potential of each seed means protecting it from weed pressure, insects and environmental stresses and helping it make the most of water, sun and nutrients.
Some of the first traits we introduced were designed to help protect plants from weeds and insects. We are building on that with a pipeline of products that protect or grow yield, and the projects in our pipeline are designed to help unlock additional yield from each seed. The next step change in yields will come through the convergence of breeding, biotechnology and agronomic practices.
Simply put, innovations we have put in place are an intrinsic part of agriculture and farming. And, as a business focused on improving lives, it is a part of what we strive to do every day at Monsanto.
