Syngenta Crop Protection keeps plants safe from planting to harvesting
From the moment a seed is planted through to harvest your crops are under threat. Crops need to be protected from weeds, insects and diseases as well as droughts and floods, heat and cold.
Syngenta ensures protecting your crops is as easy as it is sustainable. Syngenta offers multiple modes of action including liquid and granular forms. Syngenta even offers products with minimal impact on beneficial insects. This allows you to hit those pests from multiple sides without adverse effects.
Protecting crops means investing significantly in research and development. We don’t find active ingredients by chance. We design them and it can take 8 to 10 years to reach commercial launch. Pests and diseases are a constantly evolving threat. The changing environment makes it even harder for farmers to grow their crops. So, we’re speeding up the pace of our innovation to meet constantly changing natural threats and society’s increasing expectations.
Our product development is driven by scientific insights gained by working closely with farms in the field. That’s whether we design a breakthrough ‘blockbuster’ molecule or develop an active ingredient for a specific purpose. We include safety and sustainability criteria from the very beginning.
To create successful solutions, we need diversity of ideas and expertise. We don’t work alone but have collaborations with many partners such as universities, research institutes and sustainable agriculture experts.
Farms from all walks of life must meet high expectations and standards. These standards are held by food processors and retailers, consumers, society and our planet.
Crop protection is one of the world’s most highly regulated industries. To gain and maintain registration, a chemical must be shown to be safe for workers, the environment, crops and consumers.
Syngenta is a world market leader in crop protection products, offering farmers an extensive toolbox of solutions. We develop and produce herbicides, insecticides, fungicides and seed treatment products that promote strong and healthy growth.
Our products and solutions protect crops and enhance the ability of plants to defend themselves. They can be based on world-class chemistry or naturally occurring substances and processes (biocontrols). We bring these together with new monitoring techniques, precision application, rapidly expanding digital technologies and new breeding techniques.
We take our responsibilities seriously when it comes to making each product safe and sustainable. Not just for farmers, the whole of society and the planet.
Syngenta takes pride in being a world market leader in crop protection. We help farmers to counter these threats and ensure enough safe, nutritious, affordable food for all. Syngenta does this while minimizing the use of land and other agricultural inputs.
