Syngenta Grow More Experience and Agronomy in Action sites provide participants with a first-hand look at cutting-edge technologies

Sites showcase an expanded crop management portfolio through in-person events and product trials

GREENSBORO, N.C., USA, June 9, 2021 Growers, retailers and dealers who are interested in the latest agronomic innovations, have a crop management challenge or are looking to boost return on investment will have the opportunity to interact with top-of-the-line seed, seedcare and crop protection technologies at Grow More Experience and Golden Harvest Agronomy in Action sites across the U.S. this season.

Site events scheduled from now through September will allow visitors to engage in locally relevant and immersive, agronomic learning experiences. Each site is supported by a team of local agronomic experts who strive to help address the specific needs of each visitor. They will be showcasing the continued innovation of the Syngenta product portfolio and pipeline through how it addresses the agronomic challenges in each geography.

“We’re dedicated to improving access to agronomic insights and products that will help growers maximize potential yield and profitability,” says Grant Ozipko, head of technical services at Syngenta. “Our Grow More Experience and Agronomy in Action sites help us connect with local growers, retailers and dealers in engaging ways, to provide geographically relevant and localized support they need to produce a better crop and increased yield potential.”

Visitors of Grow More Experience and Agronomy in Action sites will experience field trials of various new innovations:

  • Acuron® GT corn herbicide is the ultimate post-emergence herbicide for glyphosate-tolerant corn. It delivers enhanced weed control and longer-lasting residual compared to any other product.
  • Vayantis® fungicide seed treatment represents the latest systemic corn seed treatment innovation from Syngenta. Developed specifically to reinforce Pythium protection for corn seedlings, Vayantis introduces a new standard of protection against the leading cause of stand and yield loss in corn.
  • The new Field Forged Series from NK® Seeds, available for the 2022 growing season, is built on the core pillars of driving farmer success with seed performance through strong agronomics and innovative product development.
  • Game-changing corn and soybean seed products from Golden Harvest and Agronomy in Action trial research to maximize potential return on investment.

Site attendees will also have the opportunity to impact their local communities and future agricultural leaders. Syngenta will donate $5 to each site’s local FFA® chapter or chapters for every site attendee who registers onsite with a valid personal email address.

Syngenta also provides broad and diverse accessibility to field trials through the Know More Grow More blog. It delivers regional recommendations and agronomic insight to help growers maximize yield potential all year-round.
