Future of Farming: Collaboration accelerates innovation


Guelph, Ontario, Canada

Syngenta Canada recently participated in a featured content section in The Globe and Mail focusing on the Future of Farming: Unlocking the potential of Canada’s agriculture and agri-food sector.

Syngenta’s story is titled, Collaboration Accelerates Innovation: helping farmers mitigate the sector’s impact on climate change.

In the article Trevor Heck, President, notes, “We have a mantra: helping farmers grow the best crop. It’s important for us, whether it’s supporting the grower directly or their retailer or crop consultant, to make sure that they’re aware of the best solutions for that farm operation.” And, Nancy Tout, Head of R&D, highlights the role that agriculture plays in addressing a number of challenges, including climate change: “…we are also working to mitigate greenhouse gas emissions from agriculture through agronomic practices, improved soil health and feed for livestock, by way of a few examples.”
