Syngenta has entered into a long-term multi-crop partnership with Embrapa, the Brazilian Agricultural Research Corporation, to advance solutions for Brazilian growers to improve crop quality and yield. The agreement will initially focus on opportunities in corn, cotton and soybean and will benefit Brazilian growers both large and small.
Syngenta and Embrapa will work together to broaden the offer of technologies in corn, including seeds. In cotton, Syngenta is field testing Embrapa's seed varieties with customers of different regions to identify potential integrated solutions. In soybean, Syngenta and Embrapa will share expertise to identify and treat the main diseases and nematodes. The partnership aims to extend to other crops such as sugarcane, as well as into other Latin American countries.
