Bayer CropScience at the Fruit Logistica 2011 in Berlin:
Monheim, – Bayer CropScience plans to align its activities more systematically to aspects of sustainable agriculture. The company’s presentation at the Fruit Logistica 2011 in Berlin will therefore be entitled “Working together for sustainable agriculture”. Bayer CropScience specialists will be on hand at booth C-13 in hall 20 on February 9 to 11, 2011, to present the company’s projects with partners from the food industry aimed at enabling sustainable production of high-quality food. Sustainable solutions based on seeds, innovative crop protection and comprehensive advisory services play an important part in securing harvests, sustainably increasing yields and maintaining the quality of harvested produce. With its activities, Bayer CropScience also makes possible efficient use of agricultural land and natural resources to ensure that the global rise in demand for food can continue to be met in the future.
