Denise Hockaday

Canada Business Lead The Climate Corporation

Denise is responsible for the Canadian business of The Climate Corporation, a subsidiary of Bayer, which aims to help all the world’s farmers sustainably increase their productivity through the use of digital tools. First launched in the United States in 2015, the company’s Climate FieldView™ platform gives farmers a deeper understanding of their fields so they can make more informed operating decisions to optimize yields, maximize efficiency and reduce risk. Denise launched the business here in Canada in 2017 and now FieldView is currently on more than 60 million paid acres across the United States, Canada, Brazil and Europe. It has quickly become the most broadly connected platform in the industry and will continue to expand into other global regions over the next few years.

Denise has been previously held executive positions with Bayer, managing the company’s seed business of corn, canola and soybeans prior to leading the Climate business. She brings nearly two decades of agriculture experience to the table along with extensive experience in launching new products that transform the agricultural industry. Involved in ag industry and education programs, Denise has served as a designate for Soy Canada, is past president of the Canadian Agri-Marketing Association, and participates in the University of Guelph MBA program as an industry resource as well as University of Guelph Student Mentoring opportunities.
