Why We Are Here

For more than a century, we’ve been supporting agriculture, farmers and growers. Endlessly innovating. Creating new ways to help grow more and sustainably better quality crops.

What we do for farming

With passion, agricultural knowledge and collaboration with partners, we help farmers manage complexity. We are working to achieve the balance between economic, environmental and social value creation to make a positive impact on sustainably transforming agriculture and food systems.

How We Make A Difference

Our journey starts and ends with the customer. We are helping farmers for better yield and to secure the future of agriculture by focusing more than ever on understanding how they farm.

We know we can’t meet all of agriculture’s challenges  alone. So we are working still more closely with our customers, the agricultural community, academia, peers and partners to better address the needs of people, the environment and the planet. Helping to feed the world, and create a lasting legacy.

We know that innovation alone is not enough. It has to work in the field and address society’s concerns. That’s why we want to listen, learn, share knowledge and expertise. 

Connecting innovative thinking, science and technology with practical, hands-on action that makes a real difference in the field. Working together across the agricultural food chain to add value from field to plate. Building sustainability into everything we do.

Our strategy

Our strategy is focused on a crop systems approach, with four selected farmer segments by region: wheat, canola and sunflowers in Europe and North America; soybean, corn and cotton in the Americas; rice in Asia as well as fruit and vegetables in all regions.


We are developing connected offers across technologies, including seeds, traits, crop protection, and digital products and services.


We combine continuous innovation; sustainability from lab to field and beyond, digital technologies to aid farm management, and customer relationships built on trust.


All enabled by the expertise and experience of a strong team, a wide ranging portfolio, and all round operational excellence.
