Wheat in a field
Taking Wheat to the Next Level

Wheat covers more of the Earth than any other crop and is a leading source of protein for the world’s population. The world’s cereal growers contend with a variety of ever-changing challenges—but with each new challenge comes an opportunity for better, more sustainable solutions. For wheat growers specifically, Bayer is helping them maximize yields in four integrated ways.

High-performing wheat genetics

The right genetics make all the difference when it comes to a successful wheat crop. Expert advice by Bayer professionals and insights from digital tools like Climate FieldView™ help growers select the genetics best suited to their unique growing conditions. Watch the video to learn more about the exciting advancements in hybrid wheat from J.D. Rossouw, Head of Vegetables Research & Development at Bayer.

Weed control

Protecting yield potential with weed control is critical. Herbicides like Huskie® FX—combined with optimized planting rates—can help farmers manage the enormous variety of weeds that can adversely affect wheat.

Disease control

Fungicides are also critical to control yield-robbing disease in growers’ fields, and solutions like Prosaro® PRO 400 SC promote plant health and grain quality through management of key foliar and head diseases. And when paired with insights gathered from digital tools, farmers can be more precise with their input applications, saving time and money, and promoting sustainability.

Digital tools

Speaking of digital tools—there’s a lot of information to keep track of across genetic selection, weed control and fungicide applications. Bringing all this data together through a platform like Climate FieldView can help farmers manage their fields from soil health to harvest.

Corn ear
A New Era for Corn Production

Corn is the most utilized grain on the planet. Quality, productivity and sustainability are vital to corn growers around the world—but the challenges they face are numerous. As farmers look for new solutions to use less and grow more, Bayer offers an unparalleled toolbox of solutions to help them achieve their goals.

Short-stature corn, a ground-breaking hybrid.

Part of our Smart Corn System, short-stature corn is packed with benefits for growers.


  • With its short stature and improved standability, short corn will offer farmers built-in protection against potentially devastating high winds and weather events. Hear more about this from Kelly Gillespie, Head of Digital Ecosystem Services at Bayer, and watch short-stature corn in action below.
  • Its reduced height allows improved in-season crop access, which means late-season application of fungicides or nitrogen is more manageable. 

Crop protection innovations are also vital.

Controlling weeds, pests and diseases is one of a grower’s toughest challenges, and Bayer innovations help them stay ahead of Mother Nature.


  • Bayer’s new TriVolt Herbicide—as well as a new broad-acre herbicide mode of action currently in development—will be vital to controlling weeds that have developed resistance to some of today’s current herbicides.
  • As for insects, Bayer transformed insect control in corn with our broadly licensed biotechnology traits, and we now have new solutions available, with fourth- and fifth-generation technologies in the pipeline:     
    • SmartStax® PRO Technology, our third-generation corn rootworm control product, utilizes RNAi-based technology in a biotech trait—a first for the industry.
    • VT4PRO Technology* is expected in 2024. This carries the same RNAi trait and it will offer the widest spectrum of above-ground insect defense from Bayer.

Digital tools round everything out.

For corn growers, the Climate FieldView platform can be used in the future not only to help them select which short-stature corn hybrids they want to plant, but also at what population to plant them—ultimately sending alerts for how best to manage the crop through the season.

North American soy field
Next-Gen Tech for North American Soy

With high protein and fiber profiles, soybeans are important staple crops. Bayer is an innovation leader in soybeans today with our Asgrow® brand genetics, XtendFlex® Technology offerings, as well as an impressive portfolio of crop protection solutions. But we’re not resting on our laurels. As North American farmers must continually adapt to threats in their fields, we look for opportunities to strengthen their success through a system of next-generation technologies. Here are four of our newest.

Emerging weed control technologies
  • As weeds develop resistances, farmers will need even more diverse and durable weed management systems. Bayer is investing heavily in new herbicide technologies with multiple modes of action—and ones that are designed with the expectation they will have better safety and environmental profiles—to deliver best-in-class, full-spectrum weed control to growers.
  • Here, Rachel Rama, Head of Small Molecules Research & Development at Bayer, talks more about tomorrow’s weed management solutions.
Soybean herbicide tolerance trait pipeline
  • Building herbicide-tolerant traits into soybeans gives farmers flexibility and more options for weed control. Today’s most flexible offerings from Bayer are XtendFlex® soybeans, which enable the use of dicamba together with glyphosate and glufosinate for broad-spectrum, over-the-top weed control—even in fields with tough-to-control, resistant weeds.
  • In the years to come, our fourth- and fifth-generation traits will deliver even more options for growers.* Our HT4 technology will enable the additional over-the-top use of both HPPD and 2, 4-D herbicides. And HT5 soybeans will introduce tolerance to a broad-spectrum PPO herbicide. 
  • As we launch these new traits, we’ll be bringing them to market in our latest genetics to give farmers both outstanding yield potential and improved ways to protect it.
Precision application technologies

In our quest to help farmers be more precise and effective with post-emergence applications throughout the growing season, we’re piloting new ways to use emerging technologies and digital tools like unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), which promote precision application, enhanced safety, and increased sustainability.


Holistic solutions
  • We strive to be a true partner to our customers from seed to harvest and beyond by bringing farmers new opportunities to improve the profitability and sustainability of their farms. The Bayer Carbon Program is a great example of this, as it not only offers participating growers incentives for verified implementation of carbon-smart farming practices, but also helps them protect their land and soils for the future.
  • Another example is CoverCress™, a winter oilseed crop developed by CoverCress, Inc., which when commercialized will combine grain production with the environmental benefits of a cover crop – without displacing other harvests.
Latin American Soy

The advances in this digital platform ensure farmers have additional ways to access Bayer’s integrated solutions.

Cotton Field
Enhancing Cotton’s Potential

Accounting for over one-third of the world’s textiles and fabric, cotton is the most widely-grown fiber. Cotton thrives in warmer climates. But so do the insects and weeds that pose a threat to it. And it requires significant attention and careful management to bring a crop from seed to harvest. Genetic advancements and the advent of biotechnology traits have improved cotton production significantly, increasing yields while reducing pesticide applications and conserving water. But future technologies are swinging the pendulum to further reduce the environmental footprint of cotton while increasing productivity. Here are two we’re excited about at Bayer that will continue to advance sustainable production:
