Global Impact

Innovation for Our Growing Planet

The world population increases by three people every second.

This number may seem manageable. But by 2050, this “small” increase will result in a total population of about 9.7 billion.


Farms of every size are working to grow more efficiently and sustainably, using fewer natural resources. Smallholder farmers in Asia, Africa, and South America are feeding more than half the planet. Globally, farmers are trying to accomplish increasingly difficult goals — and they need solutions.


At Bayer, we believe that shaping the future of agriculture and making a global impact on growing enough requires commitment to innovation, sustainability, and collaboration. As we strive to deliver innovation, we’re collaborating with partners who believe in the power of human ingenuity to create progress for our world.
