Bayer welcomed farmers, academics, leading global industry experts, journalists and other stakeholders to Monheim, Germany for its 2019 Future of Farming Dialogue Oct. 1-2 to engage in a collaborative discussion on the future of agriculture.
Under the theme “Tomorrow belongs to all of us” the event gathers speakers and participants from around 40 countries for two days of robust panel discussions, talks and interviews on issues and opportunities facing the industry. Topics discussed include the need to find a balance between production of food and preservation of our planet; consumer demands to have a healthy diet with no negative impact on the environment; and the importance of crop protection tools for sustainable agriculture.
