Bayer Touts Successful Agronomy Summit

By Amanda Brodhagen,

Several weeks have passed since Bayer CropScience held its first Agronomy Summit in Banff, AB. During this time, Bayer’s team has had the opportunity to reflect on the event, and gauge whether or not it was a success.

Bayer’s Allan Eadie provided the following statement to

“As part of our commitment to Canadian agriculture, the first ever Bayer CropScience Agronomy Summit: The Science Behind was designed to bring agronomists across the country together to discuss topics that matter most to Canadian farmers.  As a team, we are very proud to have hosted industry leaders and world-class speakers, and create a venue for discussion on some of today’s most important topics in crop production. The event’s successes were a result of the interest and engagement exhibited by guests. Their feedback so far indicates a strong appetite for another Agronomy Summit in the future,” he said.

The three-day summit attracted the top agronomists from across Canada, and brought together leading experts to talk about the “science behind” topics like – canola, fungicides, plant health, and herbicide resistance. The science behind was the theme of the event, which aimed to provide a closer look at the latest science and technology related to agronomy.

In an earlier interview with, Eadie highlighted the importance of bringing together the country’s best agronomists, dubbing them as key “influencers.” He said the company recognizes that it’s essential to share information with influencers in the industry, so that they can understand the science behind Bayer’s products.

The summit was a great way to wrap up 2013, and give Bayer a boost leading into 2014! In the coming weeks, will be sharing videos from the event when they become available.
