“Continued investment in R&D offers the best hope of addressing such challenges, which is why Bayer is investing more than $1billion dollars annually to help improve crop production,” explained Hollinrake.

Hollinrake noted that no single company or institution is capable of achieving food security for a hungry planet. He described the need for collaboration and Bayer’s outreach within academia and governments, and among food chain partners, NGOs and others who can contribute to finding sustainable solutions.

In addition to Daivid Hollinrake, speakers at the Feeding the Planet summit included Chris Policinski, President and CEO of Land O’Lakes. Inc.; Dr. Rajiv Shah, Administrator, USAID; Krysta Harden, Deputy Secretary, U.S. Department of Agriculture; Shenggen Fan, Director General of the International Food Policy Research Institute; Dr. Phil Miller, Vice President, Monsanto; Jason Clay, Senior Vice President, World Wildlife Fund; and Julie Borlaug, Assistant Director of Partnerships at the Norman Borlaug Institute for International Agriculture. The summit was moderated by Frank Sesno, Director of the School of Media and Public Affairs at George Washington University and founder of Planet Forward.
