Syngenta Seedcare on 16 October, announced the launch of its first biologicals service center at The Seedcare Institute in Maintal, Germany
The centre is equipped with ultramodern technologies addressing growing farmer demand across the EU for biological seed treatment solutions, providing best-in-class service and application support for its customers.
Starting from the initial stages of life, biological seed treatment solutions protect plants from pests and improve their access to available nutrients, thus ensuring healthy crop establishment. However, a number of factors including biological compatibility and on-seed survivability need to be taken into account in order to combat the new challenges presented by developing biological seed treatment solutions.
Syngenta Seedcare offers a broad portfolio of solutions, comprising the EPIVIO range of biostimulants for healthy crop establishment; ATUVA to promote nutrient use efficiency for soybean and legume crops, and NUELLO biofertilisers that leverage nitrogen fixation and promote soil health.
The service centre in Maintal offers specialised expertise to support the application of these new seed treatments. Moreover, it also provides value-adding services, including advisory on water quality and recipe compatibility, on-seed survivability measurement, guidelines for storage, handling and cleaning, and specialised training on proper stewardship of biologicals.
“Our leadership in biological innovation and seed treatment is built on our ability to constantly enhance and adapt our service offers,” said Jonathan Brown, global head Seedcare. “This new biologicals service centre enables the successful use of biologicals as seed-applied solutions through shared practical knowledge and resources. As the industry collaborator of choice, we look forward to launching new solutions together with our partners.”
