Benefits for Rural Communities

More than 2.5 billion people around the world depend on agriculture for their livelihoods. The success of their harvest each year is critical to these farmers and their families. We combine our products and technology with training and engagement in rural communities.

Syngenta products and training help farmers increase yields and reduce the risk of crop failure. Labor intensive activities such as hand-weeding can be reduced, often freeing family members to use the time instead to improve their education, or pursue other jobs that can further boost the family income.

Syngenta works closely with farmers and distributors to share best practice in crop management and train growers to use our products responsibly and effectively. This enables them to meet strict high quality standards for their produce, opening up important income opportunities.

Syngenta has people living and working in communities all over the world. They are committed to working hard to ensure safe production and use of all products as well as ensure safety from research and development to manufacture and use.
