Monsanto receives recognition from Science Magazine

Science Magazine has ranked Monsanto No. 9 in the magazine’s 2015 Top Employer survey that polled people in the biotechnology, biopharmaceutical, pharmaceutical and related industries in North America, Europe and the Asia-Pacific Rim.

“I am pleased to see Monsanto recognized by Science as a top employer,” Robb Fraley, Monsanto's chief technology officer, said. “I am constantly inspired by the great people we have working at Monsanto; the bright minds, the diverse backgrounds and the collaborative spirit of our employees make Monsanto a great place to work.”

Monsanto invested approximately $1.6 billion in research and development in the 2015 fiscal year while providing farmers with valuable solutions for on-farm challenges to bring a larger crop yield to market. A workforce with science, technology, engineering and math skills (STEM) skills is becoming more valuable in the agricultural field as innovations evolve to meet an increasingly technological world.

“As humanity looks to feed a global population growing to nearly 10 billion by 2050, we need to encourage more young people to pursue careers in STEM, and I hope that Monsanto can play a role in their bright futures,” Fraley said.
