Bayer CropScience is a leading provider of innovative crop protection solutions from seed to harvest and beyond. We are committed to helping UK farmers provide safe, high quality, affordable food, produced in a sustainable way using less water and energy, whilst promoting biodiversity. We are passionate about UK farming and its ability to produce food, feed, fibre and fuels, and we take a leadership role in our approach to environmental stewardship.
We are proud of our innovative approach to agriculture; for every £10 in sales of crop protection products, £1 is reinvested in our pursuit of even better products.
We recognise that with leadership comes responsibility; Bayer CropScience is committed to the safe, appropriate and judicious use of pesticides in the environment and is working with farmers, agronomists and wildlife charities here in the UK to reduce the environmental impact of farming.
Likewise, we recognise the need to respond to the twin challenges of a rising population and climate change. The use of crop protection to control pernicious weeds, destructive insects and damaging diseases has a significant positive impact on the amount of food we can produce per field and per drop of water, and to reduce waste post-harvest.
Naturally, it is important that we implement our vision of a more sustainable agriculture in Bayer CropScience. We are therefore investing in precision farming as well as reducing our own water and carbon footprint. Likewise we have nurtured and promoted the biodiversity at our own farms, in a way that can inspire and inform UK farmers, agronomists and other partners in the food supply chain
