Walk through any supermarket, and you clearly see sustainable advances have been made in food production, variety, and quality. Now more than ever, there is a critical need for new breakthroughs. Global population forecasts show overall food production must be boosted by about 70 percent in four decades. Although our natural resources are limited, the potential for agricultural production advances is not.
Our roots …
We began as the plant sciences business of The Dow Chemical Company, which was founded in 1897. A joint venture with Eli Lilly and Company in 1989 created DowElanco. With a focus on sustainable agriculture, DowElanco combined the leading chemistries of The Dow Chemical Company with those of the agricultural division of Eli Lilly. In 1997, The Dow Chemical Company acquired full ownership of the business and named the business Dow AgroSciences. Today, we employ more than 8,000 people worldwide, and our 2012 global sales were $6.4 billion (U.S.).
