The interest of Bayer to expand its activities in the Andean countries began from the beginning of the last century, when in 1912 Mr. Otto Kemmler, delegate of the parent company, arrived in Colombia to investigate the market possibilities in this country. But it was the year 1922 that marked the formal entry of Bayer into the Andean Region with the foundation in Barranquilla of "Química Industrial Bayer Weskott & Cía". From then on, Bayer's growth in Colombia was dynamic and was reflected in the creation of new companies that expanded the coverage of Bayer products throughout the country. In Colombia, Bayer is the only agricultural multinational that has an agricultural research center with field infrastructure, mesh houses and laboratories, methodologies, application techniques and environmental management programs. The La Tupia Experimental Center specializes in crop protection research for the tropics. The Center is a tool for farmers throughout Colombia who can get there, first hand information about the 150 annual research tests that are carried out. The Center is also a place to exchange knowledge with universities in Colombia and carries out activities aimed at the neighboring community of La Tupia, municipalities of Pradera and Candelaria (Valle del Cauca) to motivate self-care, raise awareness about sustainable agriculture, promote importance of environmental protection and the need to preserve renewable natural resources.
