AGRO Global strengthens its activities in research and development (R&D) for sustainable agricultural innovations, helping farmers to overcome environmental and economic challenges as well as meeting consumers’ demand for more sustainably produced food. With solutions launching throughout the next decade, the pipeline supports the company’s aim to annually increase its sales share of 5%.

By 2030, more than 30 major R&D projects will complement AGRO’s connected offer of seeds and seed treatment products, chemical and biological solutions, as well as digital services..

“AGRO Global leads in solutions for sustainable agriculture. In addition to developing innovations, we also provide a connected offer, combining effective products as well as new technologies and services, tailored to customers’ needs and their different crop systems around the world,” said Vincent Gros, President of AGRO Global.

Connected offer for productive and environmentally friendly farming

By 2050, farmers will have to feed an estimated 9.7 billion people, requiring an increase in productivity of 50%. Digitalization has the potential to make an important contribution to this. The company is therefore advancing its digital technologies together with other innovations across its whole portfolio. This combination allows farmers to achieve better yield on existing arable land, while supporting biodiversity preservation.
