2016 was a great year in which we engaged growers, students, educators and consumers through AgVocate, Making Science Make Sense, national tradeshows, customer interactions and much more. It was also the year for increased investment in innovation and the future of agriculture, and deeper commitment to our growers. 2017 proves to be no different! As we all gear up for the season ahead, there are plenty of exciting things to look forward to.

Strengthening Connections

Being able to hear about challenges, successes and opportunities from our customers is just one of the many reasons we look forward to yearly events like Commodity Classic, Farm Progress Show, CAPCA, ASTA CSS & Seed Expo, the Producer Information Exchange (PIE) tours and many more. Continuing to strengthen our customer focus is a #1 priority for Bayer.

Advancing Together

The agriculture industry faces many challenges in an ever-changing environment. The acquisition of Monsanto provides significant benefits for growers, as we work together to advance the next generation of farming. For the latest information regarding this agreement please visit

AgVocating for Modern Ag

Our efforts to inform, encourage, and enable positive voices for modern agriculture will continue in 2017. As the AgVocate Facebook group continues to expand with members from all backgrounds, we’re confident conversations will deepen and more voices will be heard, creating more opportunities to help growers connect with consumers.

Global food production needs

Feeding a Hungry Planet

Young adults from across the globe will gather in Brussels, Belgium this fall to explore and discuss their opinions for solving our global food challenges. Youth Ag Summit will be an exciting time for all involved come October. Throughout the year, we will have plenty of updates on our U.S. delegates who were selected to attend.

Supporting the Future of Ag

In addition to the 2017 Youth Ag Summit, we will be continuing our Making Science Make Sense activities at local schools and on-site at our locations across the country. We also can’t wait to give the top FFA chapter their donation from our Real Yield Sweepstakes at this year’s Commodity Classic. Up to $50,000 will be given out to various chapters around the country. By supporting organizations that are focused on agriculture education, community involvement and leadership, we help ensure a bright future for the industry.
