Our approach

Deep knowledge of our customers, global insights and information applied locally help farmers get the most from every part of their fields.


Our integrated approach to increasing crop productivity

Everything we do is about solving a complex problem—improving crop productivity.

Factors that affect crop productivity range from seed performance and an enhanced output and functionality to pest control and optimizing profitability.

Farmers require sustainable crop productivity and efficiency gains as they navigate multiple challenges:

  • Increasing seed performance and productivity
  • Optimizing profitability in all market conditions
  • Enhancing output and functionality
  • Controlling weeds, disease, insects and nematodes
  • Balancing agronomic performance with operational constraints
