Soybeans are the largest protein source in agriculture and are also used in biofuels. Global demand for soybean is growing at 4% annually. Yields are threatened by resistant weeds, particularly in the USA, and by disease and insects in Latin America. Our strategy focuses on delivering solutions to growers that enhance yields without using more land, water or inputs.
ELATUS™: market-leading soybean rust control
Elite varieties with herbicide-tolerant and insect-resistant traits
Broad portfolio for weed resistance and early weed management
Soybean growers need to meet rising demand without increasing the amount of farmland used, so improving yields is a constant challenge. In Brazil, Syngenta provides its High Yield Soybean integrated crop solution, locally named INTEGRARE™.
The offer – designed based on grower insights and our technology expertise – can be customized to different environments. It includes best-in-class seeds, seed treatments and crop protection with robust protocols, combined with a choice of agronomic or financial services such as nutritional advice or risk management tools.
Following initial field results delivering 5–10% better yield than competitors’ crops, the INTEGRARE™ solution was used on 300,000 hectares in 2015.
