Get an inside look at Syngenta Research and Development
Every great innovation starts somewhere, and at this year’s Fields of Innovation, Syngenta will showcase the R&D Technology Center. Walk alongside the experts and scientists to learn more about how Syngenta uses biologicals, field sensing technology, and how desirable traits are integrated into modern varieties through backcrossing.

On your biological tour, become well versed in how these tiny organisms are found everywhere in the world, with millions of different species. Now, thanks to thorough research, they’re being used in agriculture for everything from nutrient optimization to pest management.

Syngenta will showcase the EDAPHLOG soil insect sensor and the Biodiversity Sensor to demonstrate the field’s soil health and overall diversity of ecosystems. Soil is the foundation of the food system, and 95% of the global food supply is grown in it. Now is the time to protect this degrading resource, so future generations have reliable access to food. Discover how this information can be used to make more informed operational decisions.

Finally, get your questions answered about how genetic advances are made through breeding. Each year the breeders examine millions of different variety options to find only the best attributes to bring forward. Once these critical traits are discovered, they are integrated into today’s modern varieties. Syngenta’s state-of-the-art breeding capabilities mean growers have access to better products and solutions more quickly with a greater understanding of the plants than ever before.
