We all need food — both to stay alive (important) and to get the most out of lives (also pretty important). We bond over meals, we connect to the land through what we grow, and we reflect what we believe in what we choose to eat. Eating is good.
If you’re a fan of eating, thank a farmer. Farming has been a major part of civilization for millennia, and today’s farmers continue that legacy. Over thousands of years, farmers and scientists have guided the development of new crops, created new tools, and pioneered new techniques. We’ve expanded what’s possible in creating safe, sustainable agriculture.
Here’s why we at Bayer keep working to make farming better.
Our World is Changing
With all due respect to our noble ancestors, most of us would pass on the chance to swap lives. Today, we enjoy choices that would boggle our great-great-grandparents’ minds — in how we live, what work we do, how we relax, and how we eat. Most of our families moved away from the farm ages ago, so far fewer people are involved in growing food. Despite that, our grocery stores are serving up a larger variety of nutritious, affordable food than ever before.
How is that possible? Science!
