While the first European Root Health Forum hosted by Syngenta in 2012 gathered 70 participants from seven countries, 2015 saw 220 technical and industry experts from 26 countries exchange perspective on Root Health, including a delegation organized by Syngenta China.

The range of technical expertise also expanded beyond researcher-focus to include breeders, distributors, retailers and growers. This milestone of wider participation set by the 2015 European Forum builds on the momentum that Syngenta has led by hosting the first global Root Health Forum in 2011 (Miami), a second global Forum in 2013 (Beijing) and 13 previous regional events worldwide.

“Our goal was to initiate valuable scientific and industry peer-to-peer exchange on Root Health that we hope will reach countries across the region,” said Andrea Zanaboni, Syngenta Global Seedcare Asset Manager, EAME Portfolio Lead. “This open dialogue benefits the industry overall and also demonstrates the value of product innovations from Syngenta, such as VIBRANCE® seed treatment.”
