Syngenta leads in Brazil
Syngenta remained Brazil’s leading agrochemical company in 2011, according to a study from the generic agrochemical industry association, the Aenda. The Swiss company also saw the largest rise in sales among the main companies, stretching its lead against Bayer CropScience. The Aenda uses unaudited figures in its study. It has placed Syngenta as the major national supplier for a few years ( Agrow passim). Consagro took the lead among Aenda’s associates. Its sales rose by more than two-thirds to some $59 million. Other Aenda associate leaders included Rotam, with sales up by 23% to $49 million, and despite falling sales, Oxyquimica. The Brazilian market grew to almost $8,500 million last year (see this issue).
