Listening to the Land

by Rodrigo Santos, Chief Operating Officer at Bayer Crop Science

Growing up in a small town in Brazil, one of my fondest memories was visiting my grandfather’s citrus farm.

Biodiversity on the Farm: The Importance of Biodiversity and Supporting Ecosystems in Agriculture


Farmers have sought to learn more about the importance of biodiversity on the farm, both to maximize the performance of their operation and to protect the environment.

Farmers realize the importance of biodiversity more than most—the variety of plants, animals and microorganisms within an ecosystem, both above and below the soil.
