Pascal Cassecuelle

Senior Bayer Representative & Cropscience Division Head / Country Group România, Bulgaria, Moldova

Professional Partner

"Modern agriculture is at a cross roads. Society and regulators expect from farmers that they deal with the formidable challenge of increasing food production by 50% within the next 30 years while at the same time threatening to deprive them from some of the technologies they need to fulfil this ambition. Romania is the 6th largest agricultural power in Europe and will be 5th after Brexit. Romania has the largest corn planted area in Europe and could export as much wheat as Germany while becoming a bigger corn exporter than France provided the right investments are made in infrastructure and education but also if the right technologies remain available to produce the quantities and the quality needed. Why does it matter? It matters because 25% of the population depends on agriculture, but it also matters because the world needs the Romanian farmers. I see 2 essential conditions for the success of Romanian agriculture: competitiveness and sustainability. And Bayer is committed to both, through Research & Development investment providing technologies that help farmers preserve their yield but also produce safe and high quality food. We are proud to partner with RALF and bring together Romanian and European farmers in a forum of dialogue and best-practice sharing, meant to raise Romanian agriculture to its full potential."

Jean Ionescu

Country Manager Romania-Moldova, DuPont Pioneer

Professional Partner

"Dear farmers, we are honored to invite you - in our capacity of Professional Partner - to the second edition of RALF agricultural forum, a vivid event, open to all current questions and debates. At DuPont Pioneer we strongly believe that science is universal, but the solutions are local. Therefore, together with our partners, we will make all efforts to bring in front of you people involved in agriculture here or elsewhere in the world, able to share from their exemplary experiences. The year 2017 is the milestone of a decade since Romania has begun its journey within the European Union, its farm sector being given a strong impetus to develop swiftly under the CAP, with all associated costs and benefits. It is a time when we must draw the line and analyse the outcomes, but equally a moment to strive to identify the path forward. RALF is the framework to facilitate, in the truest sense of the word, the exchange of ideas, giving us the chance to seek together answers and workable solutions to the big questions of the mankind, be those climate change, food security, access to innovation, structural changes in the demand for agricultural products, funding, and so on. Therefore, dear friends, please join us in the dialogue open by RALF 2017."
