Kevin Adam is the business lead for Bayer CropScience SeedGrowth division and gave an update on all the new growth happening this year during the recent Farm Progress Show held in Decatur, IL.
“Some of the new innovations coming online this year is Ilevo. Ilevo is a sudden death syndrome and nematode control product that we have on the market and growers are seeing tremendous results right now. We have also launched and opened a brand new SeedGrowth technology center in Minnesota.”
Kevin said the facility was a $12 million investment with 135,000 square foot focused on equipment production and training.
Bayer CropScience has also gone into a research collaboration with Elemental Enzymes. “They are a life sciences company that is focused on soil microbes for the enhancement of soil and crop production.” Kevin said it is an exciting opportunity with a lot of possibilities, but too early to talk details.
