We are a company committed to improving lives by improving agriculture.

It is our purpose to work alongside farmers, academics and society and find solutions to make agriculture more sustainable.

Our commitment

In 2008 Monsanto announced our Sustainable Yield Initiative (SYI). Since then what started out as a simple initiative had become a commitment to sustainable agriculture. It has become the vision for Monsanto and the strategic imperatives have permeated every part of the organization.


Meeting the needs of today while preserving the planet for tomorrow

At Monsanto we’re focused on finding solutions for the issues we face in agriculture today but we know that to focus only on our present obstacles would be short-sighted. We have our eye on the future and we’re working on bringing innovative products to the market. With the aid of our talented workforce and robust research and development platform we’re working toward producing more, conserving more, and improving lives.
