A powerful panel of executive leadership from the seed industry’s four largest companies – BASF, Bayer, Corteva AgriScience and Syngenta – will convene on stage Tuesday, Dec. 4 during this year’s CSS 2018 & Seed Expo. This exclusive general session, entitled “The Majors after the Mergers: What Does the Future Hold?” will include brief presentations and a facilitated panel discussion among the four panelists, including: Scott Kay, BASF; Lisa Safarian, Bayer; Jim Collins, Corteva AgriScience; and Jeff Rowe, Syngenta. Coming at a time when some of the most significant company consolidations in the history of the seed industry have just been completed, the session will focus on each company’s outlook for the future landscape of the seed industry and how it affects every seed company doing business today. The session is scheduled for 9:45-11:45 a.m., concluding just before the grand opening of the newly redesigned Seed Expo trade show, which includes a large exhibit display in each quadrant from these four major players. ASTA’s CSS 2018 & Seed Expo, America’s largest seed industry conference, is already gathering a larger than usual attendance for 2018. Register today at betterseed.org.
