Agricultural solutions for a growing world

The world needs new solutions to feed a growing global population in a sustainable way. Novozymes offers solutions that can help farmers meet that need.


The UN estimates that the world population will grow to 9 billion by 2050. To meet this demand, farmers will need to produce more food in the next 40 years than they did in the last 10,000 combined. But with around 12% percent of the world’s land area already used for crop production, and much of the remaining suitable land part of urban areas, covered by forests, or protected for environmental reasons the potential for sustainable agricultural expansion is very limited.

Producing more with less

Novozymes is committed to finding biological answers for better lives in a growing world. Our enzymatic solutions for animal nutrition increase production efficiency, while our microbial solutions for animal health can reduce antibiotic usage in livestock and bring associated health benefits. We offer crop production solutions including microbial yield and fertility enhancers, as well as microbial solutions for aquaculture that help maintain the healthy water conditions essential for intensive aquaculture.

Partnerships for impact

Through partnerships and alliances with companies including DSM , Adisseo and Monsanto , we ensure that our agricultural solutions have an even greater impact on our growing world.
