Syngenta Innovation Center

Syngenta begins the second phase of its Innovation Center expansion.

Syngenta has broken ground on the second phase of its Innovation Center in Research Triangle Park, N.C. The $94 million expansion will include 200,000 square feet of specially designed laboratories, office areas and meeting spaces connected to the Advanced Crop Lab - the center’s first building phase, which opened in 2013. The addition will allow Syngenta to further study traits that help crops better tolerate climate variability, combat plant stressors and improve yield in corn, soybeans and sugar cane. It also will support new research in cereals, rice and vegetables. The project is scheduled for completion in 2016.
