Dow Agrosciences began as the plant sciences business of The Dow Chemical Company, which was founded in 1897. A joint venture with Eli Lilly and Company in 1989 created DowElanco. With a focus on sustainable agriculture, DowElanco combined the chemistries of The Dow Chemical Company with those of the agricultural division of Eli Lilly. In 1997, The Dow Chemical Company acquired full ownership of the business and named the business Dow AgroSciences. Today, the company employs 8000 people worldwide, and sells among other things seed varieties, crop protection products, pest control solutions, and healthy oils.
