Find out how innovative seed, trait and #cropprotection products help optimize production and increase #economic and #agronomic sustainability on each acre.Much has been written about our burgeoning population and the global need for more food by 2050. Farmers read those reports and fully feel the weight of feeding the world. Then they eyeball $3 corn, $8 soybeans and 60-cent cotton and wonder just how much the world understands food production. Farmers wonder how they can make a profit at those prices.

Farmers and the retailers who serve them are not alone. We understand that the way forward is stepped off by increasing yield and decreasing the cost to produce the bushel, pound and farmer stock ton per acre. With each profitable acre, a farmer strides toward economic sustainability, and the rest of us are a bit more assured of three squares a day.
Seeds of Innovation
Farmers need to make more than 40 key decisions on their farm each year to bring in a high-yielding, premium-quality crop. Each field on the farm demands a customized solution. And, the viability of the crop hinges on each decision.
Innovative seed, trait and crop protection products help provide flexibility to optimize production and increase economic and agronomic sustainability on each acre. We back those products with strong supply and agronomic support for our retail partners who deliver the on-farm products and support growers with the services they need.
In this issue, take a look at how our seeds of innovation make a difference. Consider the diverse germplasm, solution-focused traits and sound science underpinning seed production, seed treatment and crop protection products. Read about the relationships we have with the capable retailers who deliver these tools to farmers. It’s a chain of trust that pulls up all of us.
The end goal, of course, is filling more bellies around the world. It’s also higher profit opportunity for the folks with a hunger for feeding the world. When our focus is on helping them do well, we all succeed.
We understand that the way forward is stepped off by increasing yield and decreasing the cost to produce the bushel, pound and farmer stock ton per acre.
