The most complex challenges—like biodiversity loss, climate change, and access to food—cannot be solved alone. They require partnerships able to build upon the agricultural solutions that are already working, and to find new ones.
At Bayer, we have leading research and development capabilities in plant breeding, biotechnology, chemistry, and data science, allowing us to deliver tailored solutions to farmers faster than ever before. We collaborate with external partners large and small so we can pursue progress for farmers, consumers, and our planet.
Collaborating with others to find solutions
We serve farms of all sizes around the world and strive to make our innovations as accessible as possible. Passionate about shaping the future of agriculture, we work together to find better solutions to the challenges facing farmers, the planet, and its people.
We believe every investment in innovation should also be an investment in sustainability. We are committed to working with partners to reduce agriculture’s environmental impact, as well as improving the lives of farmers.
Our long-term success lies not in selling more products but in providing farmers with the best tools and solutions so they can achieve better harvests using less water, land, and energy.
More than 500 million smallholder farmers provide 80 percent of food for people in much of Asia, Africa, and South America. But they often lack the resources they need to support their families and communities. We aim to empower smallholder farmers to reach their farming potential, fostering growth for their businesses, communities, and livelihoods.
Since no one solution fits every need, we work closely with smallholder farmers to develop scalable agriculture practices and focus closely on education, tailored solutions, and mutual partnerships.
From agricultural areas to the places where we live, work, and play—our commitment to community is both broad and deep. Always striving to make a significant difference in the lives of farmers and consumers, our progress starts with programs that promote agricultural and science education.
Our long history of improving lives through science—as well as our responsibility as a leader in agriculture—makes us uniquely positioned to deliver solutions for farmers, consumers, and our planet. Together with partners, we must seek better answers and push the boundaries of what’s possible for generations to come.
