It’s important work, with an important purpose: make agriculture more productive. The advances reported today demonstrate a lot of depth in the company’s research and development program, and the hard work by a considerable number of Monsanto people in labs, greenhouses and research farms around the world.
We’re proud of the research work we do, but no matter how good our research is, it still requires farmers to put seeds in the ground. And that’s ultimately who all this research is for – the men and women who work the land so the rest of us can eat.
