MONHEIM, GERMANY: Bayer CropScience plans to consolidate and expand its US based R&D operations for vegetable seeds and biological crop protection products in a new site in West Sacramento, California. The vegetable seeds research, as well as the company’s biologics business management, both located in Davis, California, will move about ten miles to West Sacramento in the first quarter of 2014. The site will also include a pilot plant, and additionally Bayer CropScience has identified nearby land for greenhouse and test plot purposes in West Sacramento.

“We are focused on better leveraging our full research and development capabilities by both consolidating and expanding our global R&D organization. Our new facilities in West Sacramento will enable us to deliver integrated crop solutions more rapidly by intensifying the research links between our vegetable seeds and biologics experts and thus strengthening our innovative power,” said Dr David Nicholson, Head of Research & Development, Bayer CropScience.
