Syngenta/Agrinos further technology deal
Syngenta and the Norwegian agriculture productivity and sustainability company, Agrinos (Lysaker), have expanded their earlier collaboration to explore the viability of jointly developing product combinations to be marketed by Syngenta. The earlier agreement signed in April was somewhat exploratory in nature and trials held since have led to a decision to initiate commercial discussions. The expanded agreement will enable Syngenta to bring Agrinos products to market either in combination with existing Syngenta technologies or on a standalone basis from the first quarter of 2013. Simultaneously, trials will continue within Europe, the Middle East and Africa on further crops, and plans for new trials in the Asia Pacific and Americas regions will be developed.
