Excellence And Integrity In Global Agricultural Recruitment


Comprised of six member companies (BASF, Bayer, Dow AgroSciences, Monsanto, Pioneer (Dupont) and Syngenta), the Agricultural Biotechnology Council (ABC) invests in a variety of crop technologies, working with the research community and the food chain to determine the most promising investments. The ABC looks at both conventional and advanced crop breeding techniques like genetic modification (GM). The aim of ABC is to provide education and information to the public on the use of GM technology in the agriculture industry, while considering the public interest, opinions and concerns. This technology is developed to enhance the sustainable intensification of agriculture by creating and implementing solutions to common challenges such as diseases, pests, changing climatic conditions, greenhouse gas emissions, whilst reducing water usage and other inputs.
