Food Security

We want to help feed a growing global population within ecological limits, which requires sustainable means of intensifying food cultivation. We consider this objective to be inextricably linked with sustainable agriculture. This calls for preserving soil fertility, using water sparingly, protecting biodiversity and significantly reducing greenhouse gas emissions, along with considerably shrinking the area of land required to sustain each person. Opportunities to achieve this arise from digital “precision” agriculture and developing better seed varieties and state-of-the-art crop protection.

Smallholder farmers are crucial to securing an adequate food supply for the global population. They produce more than 80 percent of the food consumed by developing countries. However, they themselves often live on the poverty line and do not progress beyond subsistence agriculture.
We want to support more than 100 million smallholder farmers in low- and middle-income countries by improve access to agronomic knowledge, products and services. We aim to support them through expanding our product and services portfolio developed for smallholders and through innovative and collaborative partnerships that expand agricultural know-how to address their most challenging issues.
