Our purpose & contribution

We bring plant potential to life

One planet.
Six commitments.

Our aim is to help feed a growing population by bringing plant potential to life

By 2050, the world’s farmers and growers will need to feed around two billion more people. And they’ll need to do so as the land available for agriculture diminishes. It’s a serious challenge and global food security hinges on it.

Our research and development, the products we bring to market, and the knowledge and expertise we provide to growers are helping to release the full potential of crops all over the world.

Securing a sustainable future

Our ambition

Our ambition is to bring greater food security in an environmentally sustainable way to an increasingly populous world by creating a worldwide step change in farm productivity.  
We work in more than 90 countries with farms of all sizes, from smallholdings of less than 2 hectares to sustainable industrial farms.
The Good Growth Plan is having an increasing influence on our business and taking us nearer to realizing our ambition.
