After Bayer’s ag media luncheon, Chuck caught up with David Hollinrake, Vice President of Agricultural Commercial Operations Marketing at Bayer CropScience. They discussed in depth the challenges farmers face and what Bayer is specially doing to help them out with these crazy weather patterns we have been seeing. They also hit on some of the major crops in the US and what Bayer has coming down the pipeline.

“Farmers are faced with some challenges. They know that they have to produce more food on the same land they have today. They want to do it more efficiently and they want to do it in a way that helps them over come some of the challenges, like weed resistance, that they have. Our investment in R & D is really about helping them meet these challenges. I’m very proud in the fact that we haven’t changed our investment strategy over the years. We’ve remained focused on how do we help produce a more effective food supply such that they can be more successful in the future.”
