Moving Agriculture Forward with Innovation

We believe the path to environmental sustainability will come primarily as the result of agricultural innovation. That’s why we’re developing new products and technologies that will help farmers find smart ways to use the natural resources required to grow our food more efficiently.

Different Products for Precise Needs
Every region of the world, and even every farm, is a unique ecosystem. For farmers, an important part of the job is determining which crops will grow best within theirs. For example, in an area where drought is an obstacle, farmers may select seeds adapted to protect their harvests in water-limited conditions. Today, farmers are increasingly reliant upon digital tools to help make these decisions. For modern agriculture, the challenge is developing new tools and products that create solutions to very small, precise problems that collectively can result in farmers using natural resources more efficiently on a large scale.

Real-Time Measurement
Our agricultural innovations aren’t limited to seed products and crop protection. We’re also helping farmers harness the power of information to make farming more efficient. Using software and data analytics, it’s possible to measure resource use down to a very precise level. We empower farmers, both as business owners and stewards of the information, with data.

Forward-Thinking Development
Innovations in agriculture are about more than just solving problems for today. We’re also anticipating the challenges farmers will face in the future. Obstacles like a changing climate and land availability will require us to use our resources as efficiently as possible. Our objective is not only to help farmers maintain smart business models, but also to safeguard the future of families around the world.
