A Better Path Forward for Seeds

The latest articles in Thrive explore some of the most innovative tools the Syngenta Seeds engine is fueling. One article features two Syngenta researchers who are using different, but complementary, scientific methods to bring higher yielding, better quality hybrids and varieties to farms at an unprecedented pace. Another article showcases our digitally driven seed selector tool that evaluates years of environmental and performance data to help Syngenta resellers more precisely select the best seed product for each field. A different but related article explains how the development of Syngenta soybeans starts with one of the largest, most diverse germplasm pools in the industry and results in varieties that target a broad range of pest, soil, weather and other environmental conditions.
Thrive also highlights two specific seed technologies in corn that are delivering greater opportunity and value to the farmers who use them: Agrisure Duracade®, a unique Bt trait that offers a different mode of action against the costly corn rootworm, and Enogen® Feed hybrids, which can potentially boost profitability by helping to provide more available energy to feedlot and dairy cattle.
“When it comes to service, we’re merging high tech with high touch by adding experts to our local sales and agronomy teams and expanding our digital agriculture prowess.”
Of course, we realize without our reseller partners, our focus on farmers would be a little less clear, with a greater number of obstacles blocking our view. After all, our NK® retailers and Golden Harvest® Seed Advisors are the links that connect us to farms across the country—and the lens through which we can forge a better path forward.
