The AgProfessional Readers' Choice 2010 Top Product of the Year award was presented to Syngenta during the recent Commodity Classic in Tampa, Fla., by Richard Keller, the magazine's editor.
The winning product was Syngenta's Agrisure Viptera seed trait that promises to surpass other insect-control seed traits in corn. The award was selected by readers of the magazine and those who visited the Web site www.AgProfessional.com. They selected from a top-10 list of products introduced in 2010 compiled by the editors of AgProfessional in December.
Accepting the award on behalf of Syngenta was Grant Ozipko, Agrisure trait marketing manager, (left) and Tracy Mader, Syngenta corn and soybean product marketing head, (right).
Voters were instructed to vote on the potential of the product to be the most important and innovative product introduced in 2010. Out of the list of 10 new products, Agrisure Viptera received almost 62 percent of the vote.
