The move underlined the company’s commitment to Ukraine and strengthened its crop science business in the country, Bayer said on 5 April.
Bayer said the investment included a new seed dryer, agricultural field equipment, storage facilities and the construction of two bomb shelters to ensure the safety of Ukrainian workers.
“We stand with Ukraine. That was the case before the war broke out – and it’s even more so since then. Bayer has been active in Ukraine for many years and is committed to the country, its people and farming communities,” Bayer’s head of public affairs, science and sustainability, Matthias Berninger, said.
