Commitment to Agriculture

Monsanto is an agricultural company. When farmers succeed, we succeed. Using the tools of modern biology, we help farmers grow more yield sustainably so they can produce more and conserve more. Afterall, it is the world’s farmers that truly that feed, clothe and fuel our growing world.

We produce leading seed brands in large-acre crops like corn, cotton, and oilseeds (soybeans and canola), as well as small-acre crops like vegetables. We also produce leading in-the-seed trait technologies for farmers that are aimed at protecting their yield, supporting their on-farm efficiency and reducing their on-farm costs.

We're constantly looking at ways to maximize the potential of seed -- both its yield potential and the technology used to protect it - so farmers can get more out of each seed. Today, farmers use our innovative seed-based products to help them protect their crops and produce healthier foods and better animal feed.

As a company, we remain committed to broadly licensing our seed and trait technologies to other companies throughout the world. This approach ensures that farmers can access our products in the varieties that mean the most to their farm.

In addition to our seeds and traits business, we also manufacture the world's best-selling herbicide, Roundup®, and other herbicides used by farmers, consumers and lawn-and-garden professionals.

Our business is structured in two segments:

Seeds and Genomics
The Seeds and Genomics segment consists of the company's global seeds and traits business, and genetic technology platforms - including biotechnology, breeding and genomics.
Agricultural Productivity
The Agricultural Productivity segment consists primarily of crop protection products, residential lawn-and-garden herbicide products, and the company's dairy business.
