Commitment to India’s Farmers and Rural Community

Our vision for sustainable agriculture strives to meet the needs of a growing population, to protect and preserve this planet we all call home, and to help improve lives everywhere. In 2008 Monsanto made a commitment to sustainable agriculture – pledging to produce more, conserve more, and improve farmers’ lives by 2030.

Why do we need sustainable agriculture?

  • Farmers provide food, fuel and fiber to the world
  • Resources such as land, water and energy are limited
  • Global population is expected to grow by 40 per cent in the next few decades
  • Food production will need to increase exponentially in order to meet population growth

The Bottom Line

Farmers need to get more from every acre of land, every drop of water and every unit of energy – today and tomorrow.
