Overview

Syngenta is the global market leader in sunflower seed. Thanks to a wide and diverse network of trials in many different countries, cultivars which are best suited to the needs of different customers can be easily identified.

Syngenta continually develops new cultivars, which are determined by changing market requirements. Our sunflower seed is distributed throughout the world and is developed continuously, thanks to Syngenta's widely adapted germplasm.

As Syngenta is constantly in touch with market requirements, it has recently introduced several new products such as herbicide resistant cultivars, high oleic acid products as well as products with resistance to various diseases.

Syngenta strives to continually release improved cultivars in South Africa. This will ensure that the producer who plants Syngenta sunflower seeds will always remain in the forefront of new technological development.
