Syngenta to set up Russian production plant

Syngenta has signed a letter of intent with the governor of the Russian federal region of Krasnodarskiy Krai to invest up to $85 million to construct a hybrid seed and crop protection production facility. The company expects to commence production of hybrid seed in 2015 and of crop protection products in 2016, subject to obtaining the necessary permits and approvals.
