Bayer CropScience AG Key Developments

Bayer CropScience Opens New $17 Million Research Station in Seward County

Bayer CropScience opened new $17 million research station in Seward County. It will create wheat and soybean varieties more resistant to disease and drought. Being near the University of Nebraska is one of the reasons Bayer said it decided to build its facility in Nebraska. It has been a strong supporter of plant-breeding research at the college by donating money for wheat and soybean research.

CropScience Reports Earnings Results for the First Quarter of 2015

CropScience reported earnings results for the first quarter of 2015. For the quarter, sales increased slightly by 1% to EUR 3.1 billion. The company posted currency-adjusted sales declines of 15% in North America in the quarter. Adjusted EBITDA was EUR 1,040,000,000, a 5% lower than last year. The positive effect of higher selling prices was offset by decreased volumes and higher expenses for marketing and sale.

Plant Impact plc Enters into Agreement with Bayer Cropscience for the Development of Crop Efficiency Technologies for Soy

Plant Impact plc announced that it has signed an additional agreement with Bayer CropScience to develop yield enhancing technologies for soy cultivation. The agreement encompasses a multi-year partnership for Plant Impact to develop, and Bayer CropScience to potentially commercialise, new products in the soy markets of the Americas, including Brazil, the United States and Argentina. Growers in these three crucial markets are expected to cultivate more than 85 million hectares of soy in the 2014/15 cropping season, and the Americas are responsible for more than 90% of the global export trade in soybeans, soy meal and soybean oil. Plant Impact develops products to complement and enhance the effects of modern crop protection programs, enabling growers to deliver consistently higher marketable yields. These current and pipeline technologies include both foliar crop sprays and industrial seed treatments which improve the soy plant's ability to withstand stress at various critical growth stages. Bayer CropScience markets a full range of products to soy growers including high value seeds and innovative crop protection solutions based on both chemical and biological modes of action. This agreement supplements the August 2014 agreement between the parties, whereby Bayer markets Veritas®, a product developed by Plant Impact which improves the soy plant's capacity to fix pods and fill grains at critical growth stages. This newly-announced agreement extends the initial period of the Brazil Veritas® agreement to ten years and also grants Bayer CropScience exclusive first rights of commercialisation over Plant Impact's current and future pipeline of products for soybeans throughout the Americas. Bayer will make payments to Plant Impact of up to $9 million, of which $3 million will be paid initially and up to $6 million paid against various milestones. The terms for the ultimate commercialisation of new products will be agreed between the two parties at a later date.
