Corn is widely grown across the world – for food, animal feed and, in the USA, for bio-ethanol. Corn growers in many areas face a variety of pest pressures and unpredictable weather conditions. Our technological leadership enables us to address these challenges with innovative and clearly differentiated solutions.

Growing corn in Vietnam is challenging due to the Asian corn borer – the most damaging corn pest in Asia – weeds and adverse weather. Syngenta is helping farmers overcome these issues with genetically modified (GM) corn. It is the first GM crop to be approved and grown in Vietnam.
The double-stack corn variety – which is herbicide tolerant and insect resistant – improves productivity and crop quality. Farmers receive a better return on investment, and Vietnam’s dependence on corn imports is reduced.
The introduction of GM corn in 2015 supports Syngenta’s market leadership in Vietnam and is another step towards meeting the global demand for food, feed, fiber and biofuels.
