Why is Monsanto answering questions?

We created this site for people who have questions about who we are and what we do. We want to do a better job of answering those questions.

Our goal is to engage in an open conversation about the role Monsanto plays in helping to grow food and how it gets from the farm to your table.

We invite people who are interested in other topics to check out the Viewpoints section of our Beyond the Rows blog or GMO Answers.

Who answers the questions/where do the answers come from?

We have a team here at Monsanto that receives your questions, finds answers from relevant people within our organization and shares them with you.

We may not have answers to every question, so sometimes our team will include links to other sources outside of Monsanto for more information.
