Priority 2 


Enable the adoption of regenerative agriculture practices to help farmers improve productivity, soil health, biodiversity and climate

By adopting regenerative agriculture practices such as cover crops, no-till techniques and precision application of chemical and biological inputs, farmers can help to mitigate the impact of climate change on their land.

Farmers can also protect biodiversity and natural habitats by sustainably increasing productivity on their existing farmland.

Aiming to support farmers in addressing soil degradation and on-farm emissions, while increasing yields on existing land, Syngenta Group invests in research to understand how beneficial practices can be applied efficiently in local settings and into various products to be used on-farm that maximize soil health, yields, and carbon capture.

Biostimulants play an important part in this: targeting the physiology of the plant, they stabilize the cells and strengthen the roots, improve carbon sequestering capacity, nutrient uptake, and overall resilience to climate effects such as heat and drought.

Soil health also plays a big role in protecting and enhancing biodiversity, as each unique context and ecosystem require a different set of farming approaches to sustainably improve yields while protecting biodiversity. 

Syngenta Group has committed resources to further develop the data-based understanding of biodiversity in different types of habitats and soils.

With the global population on track to reach 9.7 billion by 2050, farmers need to grow more food while reducing their impact on the environment and safeguarding natural resources.
