Crop Breeding

Bayer Crop Science

Bayer as an investor in the future of British & Irish Farmers

There is no doubt the immediate future for arable growers in the UK is not without its challenges. Low commodity prices exacerbated by currency effects and increasingly difficult-to-control black-grass or cabbage stem flea beetle are contributing to a tough outlook.

Although commodity prices show no immediate sign of recovery, the long-term need for productive agriculture is not in question. The global population is increasing, and climate change means that the increase in food production will have to be achieved on a smaller land area. Predictions by Rabobank suggest there will be a 60% increase in global food demand by 2050 compared to the early 2000s.

As one of the world’s leading innovative crop science companies in the areas of seeds, crop protection and non-agricultural pest control, Bayer believes it has role to play in helping farmers with an outstanding range of solutions.

We invest accordingly; for every £10 that a farmer spends on a Bayer product, £1 goes straight back into research and development.

And that investment is delivering; in the next few years, Bayer will be introducing, approval permitting, new cereal fungicides and herbicides, new sugar beet herbicides, products for aphid control, blight, and potato cyst nematode control; and in seed, exciting new varieties of oilseed rape and wheat.

Add to this our work educating consumers about agriculture and training of farmers, future farmers and the wider farming industry so they have access to the skills they will need in the future to be successful food producers. We believe the future of British Farming is bright, and we will continue to invest in it; which is why we support the CropTec event as proud sponsor of the black-grass hub and the Seed Breeding Seminar.
