About Bayer

Bayer is a Life Science company with a more than 150-year history and core competencies in the areas of health care and agriculture.

The Crop Science Division is a world-leading agriculture enterprise with businesses in seeds, crop protection and nonagricultural pest control.

The Crop Science division aim is to help shape the future of the agricultural industry with innovative offerings that enable the production of sufficient high-quality food, animal feed and renewable raw materials for a growing world population despite the limited amount of available arable land.

Addressing some of the major challenges in modern agriculture requires fresh answers. A higher stress-tolerance of plants in face of increasing weather volatility will be as important as developing innovative solutions to control pests, plant diseases and weeds. As an innovation leader in our industry, our goal is to develop first- and best-in-class solutions in seeds as well as chemical and biological crop protection. Fostering an environment of collaboration across different disciplines, cultures and markets, we cooperate with external partners and recognize the importance of local knowledge, striving to combine it with our global expertise.
