  • How Things Have Improved in 30 Years for Farmers and Consumers

    A lot has improved for farmers and consumers since 1983--the year dr Robert Fraley first revealed research that he and others at Monsanto had genetically modified a plant. This info graphic provides a snapshot of a few things that have improved over the past 30 years. 

  • The Role of Data Science in Agriculture

    Year after year, farmers gain valuable insights from their crops and fields. The information helps farmers grow their crops more efficiently, and allows them to make smarter choices as they work to produce more food using fewer resources. That’s why Monsanto’s acquisition of The Climate Corporation fits in with Monsanto’s commitment to produce more, conserve more and improve lives.

  • Conservation Tillage

    Nearly 50 percent of all cropland uses some version of conservation tillage as a management practice.  There is still more work to be done as the agriculture industry strives to increase conservation tillage acres.

  • Mississippi River

    Monsanto funded the Mississippi River Watershed Partnership and is working collaboratively with farmers and partners to improve the quality of water entering the Mississippi River and the surrounding wildlife habitat.

  • Monsanto Partnerships

    In order to produce more, conserve more and improve lives, we partner with farmers, local governments, NGO’s, universities and other stakeholders with diverse approaches to positively impact agriculture and the world. Our commitment to sustainable agriculture has led to very successful signature partnerships and projects over the past few years.

Do you have an interest in technology, science, business, finance or communication? Do you want to help the environment, people, or produce a healthy and sustainable food supply? If the answer is yes to any of these questions, a career in agriculture might be right for you.

We know America's farmers grow the meals we sit down to, the clothes we put on every morning, and the fuel that gets us from point A to point B, but is that all they grow? Watch to find out how America's farm families grow America!

The Water Efficient Maize for Africa project (WEMA) is a public/private partnership, led by the Kenyan-based African Agricultural Technology Foundation (AATF) and funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, Howard G. Buffett Foundation, and USAID. Monsanto contributions include providing maize germplasm to enable the breeding efforts, offering technical expertise to develop and deploy locally adapted maize hybrids, and donating its commercial drought-tolerance and insect-protection traits royalty-free.

INTACTA RR2 PRO soybeans are expected to deliver a new range of agronomic benefits to farmers and represent a big opportunity for the South American market. Importantly, this new soybean technology provides a new way that farmers can get more yield out of each hectare of land, a critical step as farmers work to meet the growing food, feed and natural resource demands of our world.

In the new few decades, farmers will have to grow as much food as they have in the past 10,000 years -- combined. It's our purpose to help farmers do exactly that. To produce more food. To conserve resources, like soil and water. And to improve lives. That's sustainable agriculture. And that's what Monsanto is all about.
