As a global leader in breakthrough agricultural innovations, Bayer works with leading partners throughout the innovation ecosystem to help address the challenges facing agriculture and the world we share.
Since its formation in 2020, Bayer and Unfold have worked together on specific projects, with the goal of lifting the vertical farming space to the next level of quality, efficiency and sustainability.
Unfold will continue its journey within Bayer’s De Ruiter high-tech horticulture business, and we’re looking forward to the innovations this team will continue to create.
Our combined focus will be to develop novel varieties with the most desired consumer traits and agronomics adapted for indoor production, and to leverage the extensive global footprint and established grower and food value chain partnerships that Bayer has already built in protected horticulture, to grow the indoor farming business.
As technology advances, we see increasing overlap in breeding targets, digital crop management and the development of automation across protected culture.
