Bayer products have been on the Czechoslovak market since 1884. In 1990, an independent representative office was established under the name BAYER s. r. o., later also Bayer spol. s. r. o. in Slovakia, which started operating in 1999.






At Crop Science, we focus on the development of new varieties and protecting crops from weeds, pests and disease. Our portfolio consists of products focused on innovative chemical and biological pest management solutions, extensive customer services for modern and sustainable agriculture and high-value seeds. We are inspired by the idea of producing more food & feed as well as other products of plant origin for the growing world population. We approach agricultural production in a sustainable way – both farmers’ livelihood and optimised use of scarce resources such as arable land and water are important to us We do care about the biodiversity while maintaining safety food production, public and animal health protection aligned within long term sustainable and environmental goals.


A part of Crop Science is Environmental Science, which specializes in the formulation and commercialization of insecticides and herbicides for non-agricultural uses.


Education is fundamental


We are actively involved in the Slovak Crop Protection association (SCPA) as well as in Seed associations Slovenská šľachtiteľská a semenárská asociácia.  As part of the collaboration we conduct educational projects aimed at supporting users of plant protection products and seeds. We conduct our educational activities in areas such as the sustainable use of plant protection products to ensure safety for all users, consumers and the environment through our program Phytobac. Another issue we are active in is continuous fight against the counterfeit.








Our key areas of treatment


Pharmaceuticals focuses on the following areas: cardiology, ophthalmology, oncology, hematology, neurology, gynecology, infectious diseases and imaging diagnostics.


We ensure that Slovak doctors have access to the latest medical knowledge


Every year we participate in main national and regional medical events for physicians. We are a partner of the largest Slovak scientific societies including: Cardiology, Neurology, Ophthalmology and Gynecology. 

Scientific proof is paramount to the credibility of medicine. Our Slovak organization is particularly supporting this global need with an own and steadily growing Clinical Operations Team.


Health policy


We are a member of the Association of Innovative Pharmaceutical Industry AIFP. Together with other companies cooperating on the Slovak market we initiate comprehensive solutions in the field of health care.


Clinical trials


The research and development team in Slovakia conducts clinical trials in phases II to III. Clinical trials are one of the most important parts of new drug research and development. Depending on their phase, they are intended, in particular, to determine the efficacy of the drug, determine its dose, monitor its effects on the human body and monitor the safety of the medicine when taken, before and after marketing.


For Slovak doctors, clinical trials are an opportunity to learn about new treatment options and allow them to participate in the development of new medicines in collaboration with experts from other countries. Clinical trials are conducted under the guidance of selected physicians on the so-called clinical trials centers in several therapeutic areas, in particular in the field of hematooncology, oncology, cardiology and gynecology.


Patients are given the opportunity to try innovative treatment for their disease and receive more intensive care.
