Syngenta agrees Ceeds deal for Plene range in Brazil

Syngenta is to access a new planting system for sugar cane in Brazil to enable the commercial use of its integrated crop protection and seed technology, Plene. The company has agreed an exclusive licensing deal with Canadian bio-energy company New Energy Farms (Leamington, Ontario) for its Ceeds (Crop expansion encapsulation and drilling system) technology. It is complementary to Plene Evolve and Plene PB, launched last year, which are for nursery production and gap-filling. The expanded Plene range will be based on encapsulated plant tissue produced in a controlled environment, allowing a higher multiplication rate and a lower unit cost compared with conventional planting systems. It will be introduced commercially in 2017.
