Syngenta Unveils New Innovations

Trish Malarkey, Head of Syngenta R&D, explains how the company's rate of innovation is accelerating and improving productivity.

At its research facility in Stein, Switzerland, Syngenta sets out the details of its pipeline of innovation across chemistry, seeds and traits. The pipeline contains several technologies across all product lines which the company says will further accelerate value creation and extend Syngenta’s industry-leading position.
In crop protection, the company will showcase its technology pipeline, focusing on the nine new active ingredients with combined peak sales potential of over $3.6 billion. These include the fungicide Adepidyn (pydiflumetofen) and Orondis for vegetables and specialty crops. The pipeline also includes blockbuster products in insecticides and herbicides together with breakthrough technology in seedcare.
In seeds and traits, corn trait revenue is set to more than double by 2020, according to the company. Building on its Hyvido barley, Syngenta recently achieved technical proof of concept in hybrid wheat. Commercialization is expected to start by the end of the decade, with peak sales potential of more than $3 billion.
