Syngenta Vegetable Seeds Celebrates a Milestone
“We’re focused on bringing innovation to our customers and to the entire value chain,” says Teresa Mitzel, head of vegetables biological operations at Syngenta in North America and Mexico. “Our goal is to help meet the consumer demand for high-quality, tasty, nutritious vegetables and make them available every day of the year.”
Syngenta conducts vegetable seeds research and development at several sites in key production regions of the U.S., including Woodland and Gilroy, California; Nampa, Idaho; Plainfield, Wisconsin; Hall, New York; Stanton, Minnesota; and Naples, Florida.
Trialing occurs at these sites and other key markets throughout the year, allowing Syngenta to continually introduce innovative new varieties. Seed resellers and vegetable growers who visited the sites in 2017 had a chance to get a glimpse of what the future holds, such as enhanced disease resistance packages, varieties with earlier maturity and improved fruit quality.
“Our goal is to continue introducing vegetable seed offerings that address production challenges, while setting a new standard for consumer appeal.”
