Without the collaboration of the public and private sector, there would be fewer of the much-needed inventions and technologies available to those who need them most to improve and preserve lives. In his latest blog post, our division’s head of Research and Development shares his impressions from the Rothamsted Open Innovation Forum and writes about the crucial role new technologies play in meeting tomorrow’s challenges. As no one entity is able to come up with all the needed innovation on its own, effective partnerships across industries and with universities and research institutions are vital to deliver impactful products to end users.

Detective Goodnose has been sent over to Canada by a client to investigate the success story of our local Bayer Canola teams. Luckily, the detective was greeted warmly and able to glean insights through interviews rather than having to use his forensic tools!

Canola is a rapeseed that is truly Canadian. It was developed by Canadian breeders and they named it Canola, short for Canadian oil. In fact, from the seeds you get one of the most popular cooking oils in Canada, perfect for French fries, salads and muesli bars.
