Madrazo said in the next 20 years, there will be more innovative

technologies to support farmers to practice sustainable agricultural production.

“The combining chance of advanced breeding technologies that makes the seeds smarter and

more productive, together with modern crop protection products that are friendlier to the envir

onment, coupled with biological technologies that really helps explore the power of microorganisms in the soil, w

ith digital tools as integrators, you bring all of these together.”

In June 2018, Bayer completed its acquisition of Monsanto, a US seeds and agrochemic

als company, and became the world’s largest supplier of seeds and agricultural chemicals.

“We are a leader of agriculture,” Madrazo said, “when you look

at our new, integrated company there are three specific aspects that excite us: First one is our

top innovation ability; Second one is leading the digital transformation in agriculture; and the third one is we have a re

al opportunity to shape sustainability for the benefit of farmers, consumers and our planet.”
