Feeding a growing world population

Committed to feeding a growing population

If left unchecked, diseases such as late blight can devastate a potato crop (as it did in the Irish potato famine), and insects such as caterpillars and whitefly can so badly affect the quality of a crop that it cannot be sold.

Safeguarding harvests & increase productivity

In fact, without crop protection, nearly half of the world’s harvest would be lost to pests and diseases. To play our part so we are able to feed not only today’s population but the estimated 9 billion people in 2050, Bayer CropScience continues to develop innovative crop protection solutions to help safeguard harvests and increase productivity from existing arable land. It is estimated that by 2030 we will need to see at least a 50% increase in food productivity. We therefore need to use all of the tools at our disposal.
