Syngenta is to acquire Zambian maize seed business MRI Seed Zambia and MRI Agro for an undisclosed amount.  It is a leading developer of white maize seed, Syngenta says.  The move follows Syngenta’s stated goal of entry into the continental market through an acquisition.  Syngenta chief operating officer John Atkin sees Africa as "the continent with the greatest growth potential". He adds that the business' expansion within Syngenta will provide African farmers with integrated crop solutions in seeds, seed care and crop protection.
