Our country relies on farmers to produce as much corn as possible, but as severe weather rolls in, tall crops like corn are at higher risk of being destroyed. So, to help farmers protect their yields, we bred the seeds to grow shorter, sturdier stalks.
Variations in climate can drastically impact seed performance – and that’s not something farmers can leave to chance. By making use of the natural genetic diversity within each crop family, Bayer builds crop traits to fit the climate in which they’re grown.
Our science and collaborations like JoynBio help us solve farmers’ challenges today while preparing them for tomorrow. JoynBio replaces synthetic fertilizer with genetically engineered biological fertilizer to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and water pollution while giving crops the nitrogen boost they need.
