The joint laboratory CNRS / Bayer CropScience has been created at the instigation of both private and public partners to encourage the development of novel agronomic solutions by the reinforcement of the interactions and exchanges between fundamental and applied research. Since 15 years, the results that have been obtained led to the publication of more than 100 scientific papers and of several patents, thereby strengthening competitiveness of the company. Moreover the joint laboratory CNRS / Bayer CropScience has acquired an internationally recognized expertise in plant, seed, and fungus-physiology, biochemistry and molecular biology. This knowledge and expertise has been applied in the fields of herbicides, fungicides, seed treatments and agronomic and quality traits. Because of the status of this laboratory, research actions have always been planned in common, taking into account interest of both public and private partners. This success is due to a volunteer effort for developing pluri-disciplinary approaches involving researchers of different cultures, acting on common projects. The laboratory is located within CRLD (Centre de Recherche de la Dargoire, Lyon, France). It operates in close contact with this research center and also with the other BCS research centers.
