Syngenta soybean portfolio drives grower success
According to Purdue Agriculture News, 2013 marked a transitional year for growers recovering from the drought in 2012 – a year that topped the charts for grain prices and insurance indemnity payouts. Current market trends show that increased demand for soybeans in 2014 could shift more emphasis toward soybean yields and profitability. When planning for the next growing season, Purdue researchers advise growers to weigh their options and keep a close eye on the economic implications of each input.
“Planning has always been priority one for growers, but Syngenta has taken the headache out of planning, thanks to our broad soybean offerings,” said Clayton Becker, Syngenta head, soybean crop portfolio. “We have high-quality seed, seed treatments and crop protection products, all conveniently cataloged according to growers’ needs. From planting to harvest, we’ve got growers covered.”
Syngenta will continue to provide growers with an extensive lineup of soybean products for the 2014 growing season. These products combined with sound agronomic practices enable soybeans to start strong, grow strong and yield strong each season, so farmers can grow more soybeans. Now, planning is simplified with the Syngenta Tools to Grow More Soybeans online resource.
