Bayer Seeking Biologicals Partnerships

Bayer says it is seeking partners as it looks to increase its presence in the biologicals market. The company is presenting at next week’s ABIM conference in Basel, Switzerland.

According to a company statement:


An important goal for Bayer is to find the right partners to further expand the biologicals market together. “This market has enormous growth potential but is still highly fragmented’, says Karl Muenks, Segment Manager Biologicals at Bayer. We are therefore open to foster partnerships with manufacturers of biologicals in order to be able to offer farmers more efficient integrated solutions tailored to their needs. All together, we will be helping growers to meet the current and future requirements of the various players in the food chain.”

Bayer will have a booth at the fair and present its product portfolio, for example Serenade™ or BioAct™, as well as its Food Chain Partnership initiative. The initiative brings together farmers, processors and retailers to work together on integrated solutions to ensure the sustainable and transparent production of high-quality food. “Only through better cooperation with leading experts in private and public research institutions and with many other partners can we jointly strengthen a sustainable food system throughout the food chain,” says Muenks. “The future of our fields and greenhouses will be even more shaped by integrated agronomic solutions, and biologicals are an important part of this.”
