If there were one word to explain what Monsanto is about, it would have to be farmers. In the next few decades, farmers will have to grow as much food as they have in the past 10,000 years – combined. It is our purpose to help farmers do exactly that. To produce more food. To produce more with less, conserving resources like soil and water. And to improve lives. We do this by selling seeds, traits developed through biotechnology, and crop protection chemicals.
