In addition to Crop Protection, Bayer Bangladesh Limited is also contributing significantly to the hybridization of rice and the increase in productivity of rice within the country. In fact, Bayer is a pioneer of the hybrid rice industry with the introduction of slender germplasm in the Hybrid Rice segment in Bangladesh. Bayer plays a vital role in enhancing the country’s food security and contributes to around 18% of the hybrid market in Bangladesh. Bayer is the only company which has launched Bacterial Leaf Blight (BLB) resistance variety and sub-mergence tolerant variety of rice in Bangladesh which is a major concern in the wet season.
