Bayer announced today the pilot of a groundbreaking GenAI system utilizing artificial intelligence to benefit farmers and agronomists. This expert system, trained on years of Bayer’s proprietary agronomic data and insights from its extensive testing network, promises to transform agricultural decision-making and information access.

The GenAI system is designed to provide quick, accurate answers to complex questions related to agronomy, farm management, and Bayer’s agricultural products. Its development is based on internal data, insights from thousands of trials, and centuries of aggregated experience from global Bayer agronomists. This intuitive tool stands out by responding in natural language, offering expert information within seconds, significantly outperforming standard large language models (LLMs) in the agricultural market.

Amanda McClerren, CIO and Head of Digital Transformation & Information Technology at Bayer’s Crop Science Division, emphasized the system’s potential to make AI an indispensable tool in agriculture globally. Bayer’s GenAI system is not only about creating better products but also about augmenting and supporting industry experts, thus adding value to farmers and agronomists.
