R&D Pipeline: Toward Tailored Solutions for Farmers Around the World
Our team is evaluating a Short Stature Corn concept among many other pipeline projects in the field research site in Jerseyville, Illinois. It is still in the early stages of evaluation. Shorter plant architecture may provide several benefits to farmers - including improved stability, greater ease and flexibility of in-season crop access, and the potential for improved environmental stability by optimizing the use of inputs like water and nitrogen.
2018 has been a momentous year for me personally; I was honored with the opportunity to lead our company's newly combined research and development (R&D) efforts. I have traveled around the world to visit more than a dozen R&D teams on three continents and look to leading the organization help solve farmer's challenges.
