The Bayer Monsanto merger gained a lot of public attention earlier this year. What are the next steps for the consolidated company and how will it impact the cotton industry?
Jessica Christiansen, Global cotton Manager, Bayer Crop Science, St. Louis, MO, USA
“The integration of Monsanto into Bayer is creating tremendous innovation and tailored solutions for the agriculture industry as a whole, including of course cotton growers. With the breeding, biotechnology and digital advancements of Monsanto, combined with the broad crop protection and seed treatment portfolio of Bayer, we are well positioned to support the cotton industry globally. We have a keen focus on delivering increased yield, fiber quality, disease resistance, and product choices that work across a diverse set of environmental conditions. Additionally, Bayer will continue to engage, listen, promote, and partner in key supply chain initiatives for cotton fiber. We look forward to supporting and promoting the cotton industry now and well into the future!”
