What We Do
Monsanto is an agriculture company with more than 20,000 dedicated employees with a focus on making a balanced meal accessible to everyone.
We work to help farmers produce food in a sustainable way. We think holistically about how our food is grown so farmers have the tools they need to have better harvests - to make a plate of meats, grains, fruits and vegetables within reach for every family.
Monsanto uses plant breeding and biotechnology to create seeds that grow into stronger, more resilient crops that require fewer resources.
At any stage, plants are threatened by pests, weather, weeds and disease. Monsanto looks at the issues that might affect future crop growth and works with others to help create solutions to protect plant health and minimize environmental impact.
We combine traditional plant breeding with modern techniques to produce vegetable seeds that help farmers better withstand nature’s challenges.
Monsanto shares real-time weather and specific field data with farmers to provide them with the information they need to make the best decisions for their farm throughout the growing season.
There are many challenges impacting agriculture today. That’s why the people at Monsanto work hand-in-hand with farmers, researchers, nonprofit organizations, universities and many others to find solutions. And by helping to develop these solutions for farmers, it is more likely that a farmer’s crop makes it to harvest and the grocery store.
