About Bayer CropScience Globally
Bayer CropScience was formed from the merger of two successful global players: Bayer Crop Protection and Aventis CropScience. Bayer CropScience is now well established as a global market leader with a clear identity and corporate culture combining the strengths and merits of both enterprises.
The fact that Bayer CropScience was able to successfully defend its market share during this fundamental restructuring phase represents a major achievement. It has maintained its leading position in insecticides and seed treatment market (No. 1 worldwide). In the fungicide sector is No. 2 worldwide and ranks third globally in herbicides. It has also seen outstanding growth in its globally leading Environmental Science business (No. 1).
Bayer CropScience is proud of its achievements to date, and with good reason; at the same time there is no misperception about the fact that the coming years will be difficult and numerous obstacles will have to be overcome.
The development of new products and significant growth impulses from the product registrations of recent years and planned market launches in the course of the current business year will be a significant factor in obtaining the mid-term targets and as such represent a major focus of the business activities. Bayer CropScience's cutting-edge technological platform, sound experience and proven track record in the field of managing innovation will be instrumental in achieving the set targets.
