We're modernizing manufacturing here at home.
The hardworking men and women of manufacturing today are leading the way for future generations by modernizing techniques, embracing new technologies and revitalizing how our everyday essentials are produced. This is a transformative time for communities across our country and for America’s strength in the world. For agriculture, one of our nation’s most essential and longstanding industries, manufacturers are working together to pair innovation with the power of a farmers know how to advance the future of farming.
As we look ahead, the world’s population is expected to grow to nearly 10 billion people by 2050, requiring farmers to produce 60 percent more food in order to meet global demand. Meanwhile, the land available for cultivation is decreasing. Manufacturers are stepping up to meet this challenge. Investments in research and development made by companies like Bayer are helping American farmers do what they do best - feed the world. Delivering solutions that bring predictability and profitability to the agriculture industry is what modern manufacturing can achieve and farmers in the heartland of America deserve.
Today’s “new collar” jobs in manufacturing use state-of-the-art technological advancements and creative solutions to enable the industry to not only keep pace with changes but to stay ahead of threats that may arise. A great example is how Bayer’s work in digital agriculture helps farmers manage disease and drought, creating predictable crop yields, even in constantly changing environments. This innovative system blends data from satellites, soil monitors, historical records and the farmers’ own equipment to precisely tackle pests, weeds and diseases before they grow into large threats. Not only does it help increase productivity, it does so while effectively managing inputs, which helps reduce costs. And this is just the beginning.
American farmers are some of the smartest and most productive in the world and we believe that by connecting the science of manufacturing with the heart and ingenuity of American farmers, we can help achieve sustainable solutions. The opportunities are limitless.
