Beyond Seed Protection™
Successful crop production starts with seeds, the essence of life. Today’s seeds offer a broad spectrum of varieties and traits that give undisputed advantages to the growers. Seed breeders and growers invest significant amounts of money into these technologies. Ensuring this investment is best protected while exposed in soil to diseases, insect pests, nematodes or abiotic stresses (eg. drought), seed treatments are critical to protect the genetic potential of high value seeds.
To address these challenges, Syngenta Seedcare offers an industry leading product portfolio based on its world-class research, product development and support capabilities. We call it a three-pillar offer P.A.S. (Products – Application – Services) which delivers value to our customers BEYOND SEED PROTECTION™:
Seedcare™ in Australia
The Syngenta Seedcare portfolio helps defend and boost yield potential by protecting against early stage diseases, insect pests and nematodes. The seed-applied technologies go a step further, with products capable of mitigating environmental stresses like drought and cold, or enhancing the efficiency of nutrients and water.
Application excellence ensures the quality of seed treatment will achieve optimal biological performance, with an intense eye on safe use during the treatment operation and at planting, for both the operator and the environment. We also test the best product combinations and application processes to establish clear guidelines on equipment and process parameters.
