FastStart Cotton

Faststart cotton with CSD and Syngenta

The FastStart™ program is a research and development collaboration between Syngenta Australia and Cotton Seed Distributors (CSD). The program screens novel technologies and supports the development of practical tools that help growers address cotton establishment challenges. Through the work of the FastStart™ program we aim to drive cotton yield potential and support the future growth of the Australian cotton industry.
