Question of the Day

Oct 13, 2016

Here's our question from Wednesday: Today is National Farmer's Day, and while we don't usually think of "farmers" when we think of corporate takeovers, 2016's biggest corporate takeover is poised to be the acquisition of a certain agricultural business you've almost certainly heard of. Who are the two companies involved in the deal and what is the supersized asking price?

Answer: Bayer and Monsanto, $66 billion

Congrats to Craig Pittman, environmental reporter at the Tampa Bay Times, for being the first to answer correctly. An honorable mention goes to Ron Casalotti.
