Innovation, education and #AgVocate are themes at the 2015 Bayer CropScience Farm Progress Show tent.
“Today, more than ever, farmers depend on – and consumers demand – innovative solutions to produce our food in a safe and sustainable way. We are proud to say that Bayer is an innovation leader in agriculture,” said Jim Blome, president and CEO of Bayer CropScience LP, offered details during a meeting with the media at the show on Tuesday.
Bayer kicked the show off at the main entrance with presentation of a $10,000 check to the Illinois Central College to support the agronomy program. “It’s really a part of giving back and making sure we have the trained professionals to help us use our new innovations in the future and to guide our yield increases that we’ll need to feed nine billion people,” said Blome.
Bayer CropScience launched five new products in the past year alone to help farmers with their top challenge, three of which are featured at this year’s show: ILeVO®, Credenz® and DiFlexx™.
