The 2013 Pipeline Update
More than 20,000 Monsanto employees focus on delivering innovative and sustainable products to farmers around the world that help to improve yields while using fewer inputs. Our robust pipeline spans more than a dozen crops and technologies in different phases of development. These products find a place in one of four areas of the pipeline—breeding, biotechnology, agronomic solutions and new technology platforms.
As farmer needs evolve, so does our research and development pipeline. Today, we are focused on delivering systems of products that work together in a complementary way to address the challenges growers face and can help maximize their total yield potential. In recent years, we’ve added more crop and weed management solutions, entered the unique space of yield and stress work, and also added new platforms like Integrated Farming Systems℠ and agricultural biologicals. By expanding and integrating our R&D platforms, we can deliver multiple solutions for farmers to combat challenges, and help ensure the solutions work together to maximize total yield potential.
We have brought numerous traits to the marketplace to help to protect and enhance yield potential for corn, soybean, cotton, canola, sugarbeet, alfalfa and vegetable farmers. With our current pipeline of solutions, we are confident in our ability to continue to deliver sustainable innovations that meet the needs of our customers around the world.
