Meeting Background

Our objective:

Build trust ; convey openness to dialogue

Establish the foundation that: a.) we all have been adapting to meet the demands for food production; b.) we all will need to continue to do so; c.) technology is essential to meet the demands d.) new technology will require us working together and managing things differently; e.) recognize that new technology will bring challenges. F.) How we handle the challenges must be a collaborative process

our role in agriculture
Our role in agriculture
  • Syngenta is one of the world’s leading companies with more than 24,000 employees in over 90 countries dedicated to our purpose:
  • Our Crop Protection and Seeds products help growers increase crop yields and productivity
  • We contribute to meeting the growing global demand for food, feed, fuel and fiber
  • We are committed to protecting the environment, promoting health, and improving the quality of life
we have a deep commitment to research and development
We have a deep commitment to Research and Development

Approximately 4000 Syngenta employees work in Research and Development

Syngenta spent around $1 billion on Research and Development in 2008

challenges for global agriculture
Challenges for global agriculture
  • Huge rise in demand
  • Limited farmland
  • Limited water supplies
  • Need to continue raising yields

We must grow more from less

Only sustainable approach is to unlock the potential of plants through innovation

Productivity critical: historically and in the future
  • Productivity has played significant role historically
  • 40% of world’s food would not exist without crop protection
  • Technology advances in seeds: hybridisation, enhanced breeding, GM

the syngenta commitment to cereals
The Syngenta commitment to cereals!
  • Largest private cereals breeding program in the world
    • Only private company fully invested in wheat breeding in Canada
  • Focus on breeding improved varieties, with significant investment in marker technology and biotechnology
  • Development projects between Crop Protection, Seed Care and Seeds is creating new value for the Value Chain
  • Syngenta Foundation for Sustainable Agricyulture launches Syngenta and CIMMYT wheat UG 99 stem rust resistance research partnership
in the news the wheat value chain is engaged
In the News – the Wheat Value Chain is engaged
  • Canada: May 14, 2009 – The Grain Growers of Canada, Western Canadian Wheat Growers Association and the Alberta Winter Wheat Producers Commission announce that they have reached an accord with Australian and US wheat producers on the need for the synchronized introduction of biotech wheat.
    • “Prairie farmers and consumers around the globe have benefitted tremendously from the development of biotech traits in canola,” (Kevin Bender, President , WCWGA)
  • North America: NAMA is fully engaged in the Wheat Working Group and has also signed on to the accord.
where are we today
Where are we today?
  • Is there support for biotech wheat from the wheat value chain?
    • Syngenta is encouraged by strong grower support and the efforts being made by the wheat industry.
  • Are there potential wheat products that could have benefits for growers and the entire wheat industry?
    • Syngenta has a very effective product awaiting a change in market dynamics. 
  • Is the entire wheat value chain engaged?
    • Syngenta will continue work with the entire wheat value chain.
our business is part of the solution
Our business is part of the solution
  • Corporate Responsibility is inherent in what we do every day
  • We concentrate on those areas where we can be most effective:
    • promoting sustainable agriculture
    • researching and developing innovative products

looking to the future
New technologies are required

Creating new challenges / complexities

Requiring ways of working together to bring new technologies to growers without disrupting trade

Looking to the future

Our common ground is to produce enough food, feed, fuel and fiber to meet the increased global demand!
