Throughout history, humanity has improved lives and inspired breakthroughs that help address some of our biggest challenges. Our shared sense of inventiveness gave us agriculture—one of the oldest and most important inventions—and we believe it can do even more.
At Bayer, we’re harnessing the spirit of innovation to shape what’s possible for farmers, consumers, and the planet. Using the creative spark that comes from human ingenuity, we seek to deliver world-class innovation, set new standards in sustainability, and drive digital transformation.
Farmers need innovation not only to grow enough but to grow better for our planet and its people. We have leading research capabilities in biotechnology, crop protection, and data science to deliver tailored solutions to farmers faster than ever before. We seek digital tools that help drive innovation, and we collaborate with external partners large and small so we can create lasting change for people and the planet.
We believe every investment in innovation should also be an investment in sustainability. We are equally committed to helping reduce our environmental impact, as well as improving the lives of smallholder farmers. Our long-term success as a company lies not in selling more products but in providing farmers with the best tools and solutions so they can achieve better harvests using less water, land, and energy.
Data science and digital tools are powerful, innovative, and sustainable ways to improve the efficiency of Bayer’s own operations while empowering farmers to make better decisions in their fields. Like the smart tools that help billions of us make decisions about our daily lives, digital farming is enabling individual solutions tailored to each farm’s needs: the right product in the right place, at the right time, and in the right amount.
