As news breaks of Bayer’s $66 billion takeover agreement with Monsanto, we look forward to welcoming Bayer CropScience as Platinum Partner of the World Agri-Tech Investment Summit in London on November 2-3.
This is the latest and most significant move in a wave of consolidation in the sector, including Syngenta’s acquisition by ChemChina, and the merger of Dow Chemical with DuPont.
If the deal closes, the combined company will command more than a quarter of the global market for seeds and pesticides.
What will be the impact of this trend on technology venturing, innovation and R&D within the agribusiness giants over the coming years? How could this change the game for smaller companies operating in the agri-tech space?
The timing couldn’t be better for these issues to be addressed at the renowned World Agri-Tech Investment Summit. With confirmed speakers from Bayer CropScience, Monsanto, Dow Agrosciences, DuPont Pioneer and Syngenta, and 250 business leaders in attendance, it’s set to be the most exciting summit to date.
It’s not too late to join the debate: Registration is open. We hope to see you there.
