Bayer´s Innovation Engines

When it comes to a successful farming operation, growers need new solutions to their ever-changing challenges with pests, diseases, and weeds. And at Bayer, we’re pushing the limits of what’s possible now – and for the future. See how we’re breaking away from traditional research to develop new innovations that deliver for today’s farmers, and for generations to come.


At Bayer, we're optimizing recent advancements to provide the best solutions for our growers all around the world. See how our best-in-class precision breeding process gives growers the high-quality, high-performing seeds they need in order to maximize their potential, productivity, and sustainability practices.


For conventional corn growers, high winds often mean yield loss due to devastating damage to crops, commonly known as “lodging” and “greensnap”. Bayer’s short stature corn hybrids offer more resistance to this damage, helping growers maximize yield and reduce stress. To simulate the differences between short and traditional corn, we got creative. Like, with a helicopter creative.
