Modern agriculture is essential to the well-function agriculture food system. The health of crops worldwide is threatened by some 25,000 plant diseases and untold insects and weeds. With a broad portfolio of products, we offer solutions in seed treatments, herbicides, insecticides, and fungicides to increase yield and protect the crops.
Current and pipeline product offerings combine crop protection, traits and seeds to provide integrated portfolios of complementary technologies in major broad acre crops and vegetables.
Protecting crops during the early growth stages to exhaust the full yield potential of the seed. Top-selling brands like Poncho, Gaucho XT, Aeris offer growers valuable solutions.
New this year is Votivo, a substance developed for biological pest control in seed treatments which expands our offer to protect against nematodes that live in the soil.
By combining the No. 1 corn seed-applied insecticide, Poncho, to form Poncho/VOTiVO, offers a new innovative solution to protect seedlings and roots from nematodes. For growers, that means improved plant vigor, fierce yields and a positive return on investment.
Protecting growing plants against species of weeds and grasses that impact the crop.
A new solution this year, Capreno postemergence corn herbicide delivers reliable, season long weed control.
Capreno, a novel chemistry among corn herbicides, combines a grass and a broadleaf specialist for complete weed control. With multiple modes of action, Capreno is strong enough to achieve one-pass postemergence weed control, yet flexible enough to fit into a two-pass program. Launched in select states in 2010, Capreno will be available in most states for the 2011 season.
Chewing, sucking, biting bugs can inhibit the growth of food, fuel, fiber and energy crops. Without protection, nearly half the crops would be gone. With a growing population, growing more from each acre is viable to a sustainable future.
New to the market is Movento.

Offering enhanced disease control and yield potential to growers is one more way Bayer CropScience delivers on its commitment to total solutions.
