Innovations in roots and bulbs. Our success is your advantage. Everything we do is focused on finding new ways to tackle the daily, real-world issues faced by growers. Supporting your successful harvests is key.
Our carrot variety Champion is an excellent example, bringing benefits across the value chain. Bred for its adaptability to a variety of habitats and climates, the Champion carrot is a medium-early hybrid of the Nantes type for the fresh pre-pack market in summer, autumn and early winter. What’s more, its good field-standability means the mechanical harvest period can be extended to suit weather patterns or market price trends.
Downy Mildew-resistant varieties
Disease resistance in onion is an important consideration. In response to increased disease pressure, we are introducing Downy Mildew-resistant varieties to make your crop more resilient, giving you healthier, fuller crops.
And that’s not all. As you’d expect from Syngenta, we’re firmly focused on enabling superior yields more sustainably.
We’re developing new varieties better suited to mechanical harvesting to assist where labour is limited and providing natural disease resistance to bolster yields with fewer inputs.
