Protect cucurbit crops from Papaya ringspot virus with resistant hybrids

At Syngenta Vegetable Seeds, we invest heavily in research and development to meet grower needs and help overcome challenges. Papaya ringspot virus (PRSV) threatens papaya and cucurbits in all regions of the world where these crops are cultivated.

To help growers address this challenge, several recently introduced Syngenta squash and zucchini varieties exhibit intermediate resistance to PRSV:

  • Grandprize
  • Everglade
  • Spineless Supreme
  • San Martin
  • Ebano
  • Payload

This resistance will restrict the growth and development of PRSV in crops, resulting in healthier plants and higher yield and profit potentials.

Tomatoes from Syngenta: Perfection through GSPP

As one of the international leaders in crop protection and the breeding of high-quality seed varieties for the professional market, Syngenta has taken a leadership role as one of the key initiators of Good Seed and Plant Practices (GSPP), a hygiene and prevention system that significantly reduces the risk of Clavibacter michiganensis (Cmm), for the tomato market.

GSPP areas of focus:

  • The implementation of "green" compartments, separated by a system of locks from the "yellow" zones and "red" controlled areas with very strict entry rules and hygiene protocols
  • Water management, including UV disinfection
  • Personnel management
  • Continuous equipment handling and cleaning
  • Crop control (monitoring, sampling, testing)

Extracting the seeds for the best tomatoes in the world requires great attention to hygiene. Every detail counts and nothing is left to chance to ensure the excellent condition of the tomato seeds. When it comes to GSPP and seed hygiene and quality, Syngenta strives for perfection.
