At Syngenta, we believe growers can produce enough crops to meet the world’s growing demands for food, feed, fiber and fuel while safeguarding the environment for future generations. We have developed sustainability initiatives and commitments to encourage sustainable practices and innovation in agriculture.
For more than a decade, Syngenta Sustainable Solutions has partnered with the value chain, trusted advisors and farmers to promote advances in modern agriculture, crop production transparency and in continuing with their freedom to operate.
Every grower has a sustainability story to tell and Syngenta Sustainable Solutions offers different ways to frame that story. Data are important to the story – but we know that data collection doesn’t need to be hard.
Syngenta Sustainable Solutions offers two pathways to telling your sustainability story.
Both approaches allow growers to track and measure stewardship and conservation practices like nutrient management plans, soil health practice, resistance management plans, buffer zones and environmental efficiency indicators. Our data confidentiality pledge is essential to all of our digital technologies.
Cropwise™ Sustainability and the Sustainable Outcomes in Agriculture Standard for a simple whole-farm self-assessment of your operation with an easy-to-use app. The simple tool prompts users to answer questions about their farm production practices, quickly calculates their sustainability leadership score, and shares actionable, farm-level insights and opportunities for improvement.
Cropwise Financials, available through AgriEdge® – a dedicated agribusiness partnership – offers a more detailed, field-level look at sustainability through standards like Cool Farm Tool by Cool Farm Alliance or the Field Print® Platform by Field to Market.
The Good Growth Plan was established by Syngenta in 2013 to help find solutions to global challenges. After meeting our 2020 goals, we launched four commitments and targets to reach by 2025:
Under the Good Growth Plan, Syngenta is accelerating innovation on products and processes that support climate resiliency and help keep farmers productive, profitable and sustainable.

“AgriEdge has made me a better steward of the land because I can now quickly say, ‘No, I’m at my maximum loads on that product, so I need to do something else’. Or ‘Wait a minute, I don’t need to apply this close together.’ I just really think there’s so much that I’ve gained from the AgriEdge technology and record keeping capabilities.”

Syngenta Sustainable Solutions recognizes there are many different needs for measuring on-farm sustainability for the value chain. We work with our collaborators to identify the best methodologies to achieve their specific needs.
Syngenta, a Sustainable Agriculture Initiative (SAI) Platform member, released the Sustainable Outcomes in Agriculture (SOA) standard through its Cropwise™ Sustainability app. The Standard has achieved Gold-level equivalency against SAI Platform’s FSA 3.0, the highest level of equivalency.
