Moving into the Decade of the Bean

The years between now and 2020 are being referred to as the Decade of the Bean in some circles. The phrase, coined by Monsanto’s Roy Fuchs, refers to the emphasis Monsanto is placing on delivering a dozen new soybean traits to the marketplace by the end of this decade. But it could also refer to the fact that the crop is finally coming into its own as one of America’s premier agricultural enterprises. Fuchs talked about the Decade of the Bean at a media event at Monsanto’s St. Louis headquarters.
