Bayer CropScience will help growers explore One World to Grow On at Commodity Classic 2013
ORLANDO (Feb. 28, 2013) — Bayer CropScience will help growers explore One World to Grow On at Commodity Classic 2013, which kicks off today in Kissimmee, Fla. The exhibit (booth #531) demonstrates the crop protection company’s integrated solutions for corn, soybeans and wheat.
Based on a comprehensive industry research project, Bayer CropScience identified four pivotal decision-making times that serve as the foundation for the One World to Grow On platform. These key events are Plan for Success, Establish a Healthy Crop, Maintain the Potential and Successful Harvest.
In the booth, each interactive unit will have Bayer CropScience experts on hand to discuss with growers the decisions that most affect yield, including how to:
- Manage the growing weed resistance epidemic through Respect the Rotation™ and the LibertyLink® system
- Plan for the growing season, preparing soil and seed beds and protecting crops, with the ultimate goal of maximizing yields for a successful harvest
- Manage yield-robbing pests with key technology like Poncho®/VOTiVO®
- Boost yields with technology like Stratego® YLD
- Interact with the recently launched Innovation Plus™ platform
“One World to Grow On helps provide information that puts growers in a position to maximize their outcomes at harvest,” said David Hollinrake, Vice President, Agricultural Commercial Operations Marketing, Bayer CropScience. “The information growers see in this exhibit reinforces the Bayer CropScience dedication to propelling farming’s future, as well as our commitment to working with growers to help them cultivate ideas, answers and solutions.
Additionally, as part of Bayer’s 150 Year Celebration, Bayer CropScience will be celebrating 150 years of “Science for a Better Life” at the booth with visitors during the three-day expo.
Commodity Classic attendees will also be the first to check out the launch of the Bayer Bee Care Tour in adjacent booth #141. The tour’s goal is clear: To foster collaboration and understanding of bee health. The tour includes a specially-wrapped vehicle, organized presentations for growers and a bee expert to talk about the well-being of pollinators
