Monsanto offers farmers a wide range of products including traits in our cotton and canola businesses as well as a wide range of high quality vegetable seeds and crop protection products. Our products undergo an extensive process to ensure that they will not only perform for growers but also to ensure they are safe for human and animal health and the environment.

As many of our products are regulated and are approved with stringent conditions of use, the team also ensures users of our technologies are compliant with registration and license conditions to ensure that products are stewarded to ensure the sustainability of our technology to growers.
