Syngenta is one of the world’s leading companies with more
than 28,000 employees in some 90 countries dedicated to our purpose: Bringing
plant potential to life. Through world-class science, global reach and
commitment to our customers we help to increase crop productivity, protect the environment
and improve health and quality of life.
Syngenta recognizes that better solutions will not only
address the need for increased productivity, but will also help farmers to
manage and protect the environment: sustainable, intensive farming improves
resource and nutrient efficiency.
As fewer virgin areas are cultivated, the biodiversity of
natural ecosystems is saved from habitat loss. Protecting biodiversity is not
only important for the well-being of the planet, but also vital to healthy and
productive agriculture. This includes crop pollination, healthy soil, water and
air purification, and the genetic diversity of wild plants.
We cannot afford to under-utilize good farmland. Even by increasing
farmland by another 10% we will get nowhere near confronting the future demand
for food that we face over the next 40 years.
Available land resources, water availability and a changing climate will
place increasing constraints on our ability to produce what we need. The world
can produce enough food on the existing farmland if farmers have access to the
best technology and apply best practice soil conservation and sustainability
principles. Knowledge must be gathered and shared to improve the quality of
land and farming practices. Syngenta is committed to meeting the challenge by implementing
the 4Rs of nutrient stewardship.
- Responsible farming requires modern farming
practices to conserve the land and improve the soil.
- Syngenta recognizes the importance of minimizing
nutrient loss and maintaining soil fertility.
- Our products enable farmers to increase crop
production through conservation tillage which improves soil health and provides
- Our non-selective herbicides contribute to
conservation agriculture by enabling effective weed control with minimal tillage.
- Syngenta promotes sustainable agriculture
practices that reduce energy input and improve carbon storage in soils.
- Soil conservation and nutrient management
measures generate economic benefits for farmers.
- Preserving and increasing the fertility of soil
is a pivotal element of Syngenta’s Good Growth Plan.
