Syngenta/Embrapa deal on three key Brazilian crops

Syngenta is to work with Brazilian researchers to discover and trial seed and crop protection products for cotton, maize and soybeans. It has agreed a deal with the Brazilian agricultural research corporation, the Embrapa, which will initially focus on those key crops. The partners are to share knowledge and identify and treat the main diseases and nematodes on soybeans, Syngenta says. The company is also to test Embrapa cotton seed varieties, and broaden the supply of technologies for maize. The deal foresees future co-operation on sugar cane and other crops in Brazil and other Latin American countries. Syngenta Crop Protection chief operating officer John Atkin welcomes the deal. “Syngenta and Embrapa are both committed to bringing science and innovation to Brazilian agriculture to offer growers an integrated portfolio of solutions,” he says. The partners started negotiations on product development in 2008 ( Agrow No 539, p 8).
