The FastStart Cotton Program

CSD FastStart cotton

FastStart is a collaboration between Syngenta & Cotton Seed Distributors that combines world leading cotton genetics, chemistry and technologies, resulting in strong, healthy establishment and robust growth in the early stages of a crop’s life up until flowering.

CSD aims to provide every cotton grower the highest net return potential from the cotton varieties CSD produces. And to achieve this we work closely with companies such as Syngenta to develop the highest quality planting seed and treatments possible.

Together, Syngenta & CSD developed the FastStart program to screen novel technologies & support the development of practical tools to help growers address cotton establishment challenges whilst also driving cotton yield potential and supporting the Australian cotton industry.
