Our offer
Accelerating innovation in a changing world

Today, farmers need to manage climate change, soil erosion and biodiversity loss, as well as changing consumer expectations and views on agricultural technology. There is an urgent need for innovation and more action to address these challenges so that everybody wins – from growers to consumers and the environment.

Crop Protection

We protect plants from insects and diseases and provide products that help them tolerate heat, cold and drought. We complement our offer with digital management and agronomic solutions.

Seeds

We develop and produce seeds for farmers, commercial growers, retailers and small seed companies that enable growers to be more productive, to secure their livelihoods, to manage risks and to grow crops more sustainably.

The Good Growth Plan
Delivering our commitments

In 2013, we made commitments in areas where improvement is essential to secure the future of agriculture and our planet’s ecosystems. By 2019, we have already reached most of our goals – a year earlier than scheduled.
