Monsanto & Water: Products

SOURCE: Monsanto

DESCRIPTION:

Several innovations in agriculture have improved crops’ water use—better genetics, conservation tillage and biotech traits that protect the plants against bugs and competition from weeds. Building on these innovations, part of Monsanto’s R&D pipeline focuses on yield and stress traits, including water. Water stress traits are becoming ever-more important to farmers, whether it is via breeding or biotech. Monsanto is working to develop products in both areas.

  • Genuity® DroughtGard™ Hybrids: In 2013, under stewarded programs, Monsanto is introducing this product to farmers in the Western Great Plains.
  • Deltapine® cotton: Deltapine is ramping up research across the U.S. Cotton Belt to understand water use at a variety level. Matching products to the systems approach to managing water and drought is important for farmers.
