High-quality seeds ensure better and more productive crops, which is why farmers invest in them. Advanced seeds help mitigate risks such as disease and drought and allow farmers to grow food using less land, less water and fewer inputs.
Syngenta is a leading developer and producer of seeds. We bring farmers more vigorous, stronger, resistant plants, including innovative hybrid varieties and biotech crops that can thrive even in challenging growing conditions.
Providing the seeds and services that meet farmers’ challenges
Growing crops is increasingly complex due to many factors including diverse growing conditions and customer demands, fluctuating commodity prices and climate change.
We develop cost-effective seeds and services that allow our customers – farmers, commercial growers, retailers and small seed companies – to prosper in this complex environment.
Our scientists constantly improve seeds through breeding plants to enhance precise characteristics. We work not only in our own labs but also in partnership with universities, research institutes and other companies.
We have a particularly strong offering in corn, soybean, sunflower, cereals and vegetables. We acquire seeds businesses and enter into strategic partnerships and licensing agreements to expand the choice for growers, while strengthening our germplasm pool.
We at Syngenta are giving nature a helping hand. We are developing new cutting-edge technologies to respond to the challenges humankind is facing. We are certain our new technologies will allow us to transform these challenges into new opportunities.

The new generation of seeds are good for the environment, produce more food, and can better defend themselves against threats
Strong pipeline in seeds, based on advanced plant breeding and biotech innovation
Breeding seeds today is more precise and faster than in the past, thanks to the state-of-the-art technology available.
We are constantly innovating, bringing together seed breeders and data analysis experts who combine mathematics, genetics, physiology and agronomy to select features that make better more sustainable crops.
