Syngenta had a couple of big announcements at the 2020 Commodity Classic, including a collaboration with Truterra (formerly Land O’Lakes SUSTAIN) to offer a “step-change in stewardship and conservation best practices for U.S. growers while helping them focus on maximizing acre-by-acre productivity and profitability.”
This technology-based alliance will make use of data analytics from both the Truterra™ Insights Engine and the Syngenta AgriEdge® platform. The combined power of insights and expertise will help assess and improve soil health, carbon sequestration, greenhouse gas emissions, livestock lifecycle assessment and water management on American farms.
In addition, Syngenta is releasing 11 new NK® corn hybrids and 21 new NK soybean varieties for the 2021 growing season. And the company announced it will assist growers with corn rootworm beetle tracking during the 2020 growing season to help them plan for 2021.
Syngenta representatives discussed these announcements and other topics such as atrazine during a press conference at Commodity Classic.
