Production and Supply Development Program

The Syngenta Production and Supply Development Program (PSDP) offers you the chance to build a career in our Production and Supply organization. This new graduate development program includes a broad range of activities such as: chemical processing and manufacturing, seed production and technology transfer, and supply chain business operations.

Through PSDP you are part of ensuring an efficient production line and bringing new innovations to current processes. Some focus areas include how to source raw materials and intermediate products or how to build a safe production line. You also will learn how to plan production based on sales forecasts and integrate emerging technologies into processes to make Syngenta more effective.

I was attracted to the program because of the opportunity to gain a broad range of experiences early on in my career. It’s easy to see how the program has opened many doors and allowed me to achieve much more than I would have on my own. Syngenta is truly interested in developing the individual employee, as we continue to grow as a top global company.

Coming out of college, the PSDP was a phenomenal way to begin my career. Being a small-town Midwest kid, it opened my eyes to different agricultural practices across the country, different crops and just how large the seed/agrochemical business is. It afforded me the opportunity to visit many of our sites in North America, build professional relationships with company leaders and develop into a strong, young professional with a broad range of work experiences and knowledge. I would recommend this program to anyone who is looking to become a leader in the seed or agrochemical industry.
