Peas, beans and sweetcorn
Unmatched quality and expertise in fresh market and processing seeds
Dedication to seed quality control and processing excellence
Leading the world in sweet corn
We offer growers and processors more than 140 hybrids, including fresh market and processing types, each adapted to a wide range of geographies and climates. Our breeders and researchers are passionate about creating sweet corn hybrids that withstand the challenges each season brings. The research and development processes are stringent, which ensures only the best hybrids make the cut to growers’ fields.
“When a grower plants sweet corn, they want a healthy plant with disease resistance, strong stalks, and a consistent stand. And they need a crop that matures at the same time, so harvest is also consistent.” – Ilene Jones, Syngenta Sweet Corn Breeding Team Lead
Along with geographic and agronomic considerations, we also look at end-use to create hybrids for all uses. At our one-of-a-kind sweet corn processing facility in Minnesota, USA, the Yield Accelerator Facility houses the equipment needed to can, freeze, and vacuum pack corn the same way major processors do, just on a smaller scale.
Pea varieties for every environment
We have one of the industry’s largest portfolios of pea varieties with resistance to Downy Mildew, Powdery Mildew, Pea Enation Mosaic Virus, and Fusarium fungi.
Along with industry-leading disease resistance, our active breeding programs have developed varieties with enhanced agronomic performance and pod quality. This means that they can perform in a greater range of climates, support a longer harvest window, and produce higher-than-average yield potential.
Shaping a brighter future for bean varieties
For processing beans, growers choose Syngenta for high yield potential, easy harvesting, disease resistance, and reliable agronomic performance. Varieties like Bastion, Emotion, Escadron, Huntington, Jameson, and Pismo provide growers and processors with consistent quality.
