"Bayer CropScience people and technology will be integral to the sustainable production of all Australian food and fibre. The benefits of our technology will be recognized by farmers as being innovative solutions that benefit the entire value chain, from primary producers to consumers."
Bayer CropScience shares a tradition of innovation with Australian farmers that spans more than 85 years.
“Together we can:
Grow healthier crops: We’re helping farmers achieve superior crop health with a premium return on investment in their crop protection inputs. For example, with Movento, they can confidently control silverleaf whitefly which is notoriously resistant to current active ingredients.
Grow more efficiently: We’re helping deliver smarter solutions with farmers, to achieve greater control relative to cost. For example, our well-known herbicide, Precept, gives effective control of a broad range of weeds in a single pass application.
Grow more sustainably: We’re helping farmers manage health and environmental risks now and for the future. For example, we’re researching abiotic stress in a variety of crops to develop those more suited to the Australian drought-prone conditions.”
The final destination of our technology is currently the primary producer. We place importance on maintaining and nurturing relationships both with other participants in, and opinion-leaders outside, the value chain.
We strive for best management practices and to create a progressive work environment. Within our company, we do this with empathy and respect for our workmates. Externally we strive to better understand the needs of our customers. Our minimum standards exceed the R&D industry average. We provide local solutions, which are flexible, profitable and of long term benefit to the company.
Our relationships are based on trust and respect. They provide the following benefits to:
- Customers: Integral partnerships, profitable solutions, and ease of dealings
- Community: Wellbeing, safety, high quality food and fibre
- Staff: Pride in working for Bayer CropScience, career development, development of personal skills, enjoyable and rewarding environment
