The new European Oilseed Processing Center was inaugurated by Bayer CropScience on Tuesday in Monheim, Germany, offering growers a fully integrated system from field production to delivery.

“We see future growth driven by increasing and sustained demand from customers in many countries for improved oilseed rape hybrid varieties,” Marc Reichardt, Bayer CropScience’s head of agricultural commercial operations, said. “This investment is good news not only for growers and industrial customers but also for our Monheim site and the company’s global seeds infrastructure.”

Bayer CropScience has invested $16.8 million for the facility that will put the company in a great position to continue to lead in what has become an attractive cash crop for European growers.

“Oilseed rape is an attractive cash crop for European growers, and we are a leading expert when it comes to strong and healthy oilseed plants which lead to superior yields and high nutritional value,” Frank Terhorst, global head of Bayer CropScience’s Seeds Business Unit, said. “The new Oilseed Processing Center will be the central logistical point to deliver high-quality hybrid seeds to customers across the European and African region.”

Bayer CropScience offers the growers a full line of products to produce the best product. The company also offers a wide range of services and more than 30 hybrids in 30 countries throughout Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
