Farmers around the world aim to deliver the best produce to your plate. And when you’re selecting produce, you usually select the best-looking pepper or tomato or lettuce. Before that product ever gets to the shelf, the farmer faces a lot of challenges in the field, such as diseases, pests and adverse weather.
At Monsanto, we work on bringing to farmers the best seeds that have the potential to limit the impacts of diseases and pests so, ultimately, consumers see excellent-looking produce on their plate. We invest in research and development in 18 vegetable seed families.
