Syngenta teams up on US pollinator scheme
Syngenta has joined forces with the US farm conservation group, Delta Farmers Advocating Resource Management (Delta FARM), to restore insect pollinator habitats in north-western Mississippi. Delta Farm aims to establish at least five "Operation Pollinator" plots this year and to expand the Syngenta programme to more fields and farms through to 2016. They will be the first Operation Pollinator plots on US farmland, Syngenta notes. The scheme operates on more than 50 golf courses in 20 US states and has been established in Europe for more than ten years, it adds. Syngenta will support Delta FARM with grower training, seed choice and agronomic support.
