Monsanto’s core growth drivers and integrated platform were the topic of discussion when vice president and chief commercial officer Mike Frank spoke at the Wells Fargo 2016 Industrials and Chemicals Conference on May 10. 

The progress is helping the company to continue with its mission to address global challenges while still providing value to farmers and shareholders.

“The fundamentals of our business are strong – and our strategy and priorities are clear,” Frank said. “Through focus and financial discipline, our attention remains on driving our core business and building out our integrated solutions vision to best serve farmers around the world.”

During fiscal year 2016, Monsanto has continued to reach key milestones in earnings with projects like the new corn-hybrid portfolio, and seven different late-stage technologies which will be launching soon.

In the soybean sector of the company, the popularity of Intacta RR2 PRO soybeans among customers in South America is allowing the company to stay on track with their goal of reaching 35 million acres in FY 2016 with an ultimate goal of 100 million acres.

Frank addressed how the key milestones for FY 2016 are setting up the company to begin FY 2017 on a very positive note in areas of growth, research and development.
