Monsanto Company Research Report

With last season's drought impacting farmers and their livelihood, Monsanto has come up with a new corn product - DEKALB Genuity DroughtGard Hybrids. This is Monsanto's latest tool to help farmers manage drought conditions. DEKALB drought-tolerant corn plants have a deep, strong root system to help withstand drought conditions and reduce yield loss. The DroughtGard Hybrids combines the drought-tolerant genetics of the DEKALB brand with the industry's first drought-tolerant biotech trait and agronomic practices. For this coming 2013 planting season, the farmers of the Western Great Plains will have the first opportunity to plant DroughtGard Hybrids via a stewarded commercial introduction. Sustainable agriculture is what Monsanto stands for - providing farmers with novel ways to get more out of each seed. The company's seeds, biotechnology trait products, and herbicides provide farmers with solutions that improve productivity, reduce farming costs and produce better food for consumers and provide better feed for animals.
