Soybeans are an important source of proteins for food, animal feed, cooking oils and for producing biodiesel. In 2013, farmers grew soybeans on 111 million hectares (ha) worldwide, producing over 276 million tonnes. The Americas are by far the largest regional producer, accounting for 85 %.
Based on our close relationship to farmers and presence in the field, we have developed a wide range of products and solutions over the crop cycle that can help soybean farmers to continue being successful. Through our Functional Crop Care business, we are also developing novel solutions to manage scarce resources such as water, nutrients and arable land more efficiently. Productivity starts with the seed.
