As the largest agricultural research and development organisation in the world, Bayer Crop Science is at the forefront of innovation.

And to stay ahead of the curve, Bayer is collaborating with organisations outside of their own to unearth the next big breakthrough in science to advance agriculture.

Our AgriFutures growAG. contributor, Megan Woodward caught up with Phil Taylor, the Director of Open Innovation and Outreach for Bayer Crop Science, back in May to learn about their approach to unlocking ‘cool innovation’ and how growAG. is helping to harness these novel solutions that will benefit growers around the world, including Australia.

Phil believes external partnering is the driving force for innovation.

We hope you enjoy their conversation. And if you’d like to learn more about Bayer’s Grants4Ag program offering three unique opportunities for funding and mentorship, visit the commercial opportunity page here.  Applications close 31 July.
