Bayer's key contribution to sustainable cotton production

02
Feb '10
As a major stakeholder in the cotton value-chain, Bayer CropScience is contributing to sustainable cotton production. In the context of major global challenges such as climate change, water scarcity and biodiversity, the company is developing technology packages to enable cotton growers to produce high quality cotton in an environmentally responsible and economically viable way.

Through high investment in R&D, Bayer CropScience offers a broad range of cotton technologies and approaches that respond to farmers' needs, including seeds, traits, crop protection and services.

The core research platforms include yield and quality performance, as well as plant health.

In the future, further improvements will be achieved through innovative crop protection products and the use of plant biotechnology. Stress tolerance is one trait that is currently being developed.
