Protecting Water Quality - Syngenta Efforts Including Cooperative Demonstration Research Project Approach


Sustainable agriculture requires the continued use of pesticides through good stewardship. Syngenta has been involved in numerous water quality stewardship initiatives across the US to minimize or eliminate the occurrence of pesticides in water, working with growers and grower organizations, government agencies such as EPA and the USDA Cooperative Extension Service, academia, and non-government organizations (NGOs). These initiatives include research, monitoring, education, and field-level cooperative demonstration projects to better evaluate the effectiveness of different BMPs in reducing pesticide surface runoff subsequent to row crop applications. The demonstration projects have provided proven methods that growers can adopt to preserve water quality. (Click here for more information on these initiatives)
