Bayer CropScience said Wednesday that the company's commitment to proactive stewardship underscores its commitment to sustainable agriculture.
The company said it continues to develop innovative solutions throughout its businesses. It cited new seed treatment products, improved film coatings that increase flowability of treated seeds, on-demand seed treatment machinery, quality assessments, and customer training and services as examples.
Bayer CropScience Head of Seed Growth Matthias Haug said listening to the needs of customers and expanding partnerships is a key to jointly mastering the challenges of tomorrow.
The company plans to further expand its Seed Growth business by combining more than 100 years of experience in seed treatment, further investments in research and development and expanding partnerships with a strong competence brand – a combination that is unique in the industry.
Bayer CropScience Senior Global Stewardship manager Peter Ohs said the company is driving the implementation of stewardship measures together with breeders, seed treaters and farmers.
“High-quality treated seeds combined with the latest technologies and best management practices in the field maximize value and ensure the least potential impact of our products on human health and the environment,” Ohs said. “Risk mitigation is in our DNA at Bayer. But it is impossible to implement stewardship on our own. These partnerships are essential.”
