General Information
Monsanto is a sustainable agriculture company. We deliver agricultural products that support farmers all around the world.  We are focused on empowering farmers—large and small—to produce more from their land while conserving more of our world’s natural resources such as water and energy. We do this with our leading seed brands in crops like corn, cotton, oilseeds and fruits and vegetables. We also produce leading in-the-seed trait technologies for farmers, which are aimed at protecting their yield, supporting their on-farm efficiency and reducing their on-farm costs.

Research Activities
Monsanto’s Mystic Connecticut Research Facility is focused on gene discovery for biotech seed products using corn genetics and enabling technologies.  The site objectives are to utilize elite germplasm, molecular biology and plant transformation technologies to develop high value traits for farmers.
