Experience TomatoVision

TomatoVision is home to our research and development where new hybrids are tested and selected. From concept varieties to taste testing, today’s smartest tomato breeders are working on 800 new varieties, all within our 1,400-square-meter high-tech greenhouse located in Maasland, Netherlands.

My mission is to increase the final yield for growers. Disease resistance, longer shelf lives, fruits that can be transported with less damage … every incremental advance helps to make our industry more sustainable.” — Ruud Kaagman, Global Crop Unit Head, Tomatoes

We’re harnessing the power of machine learning to create new varieties that are less labor-intensive and more productive without sacrificing desirable traits, making them even more attractive to growers and consumers.

Managing critical disease resistance

Syngenta was the first company to market a tomato variety with resistance to Tomato Brown Rugose Fruit Virus (ToBRFV), a highly transmissible tomato virus.
When the outbreak began, we screened all of our germplasm in a systematic search for natural resistance to the virus. And we found it. Hailed as a major breakthrough in the battle against this destructive and persistent virus, our Lansor beef tomato was a big hit in Mediterranean countries that were affected first and most heavily. This was quickly followed by our Barosor beef tomato. Since then, we’ve continued to work tirelessly to provide solutions for tomato growers. Today we have varieties available with ToBRFV resistance, with many more in development. 


“Growers can lose up to 70% of their produce due to the virus, and it’s spreading rapidly.” — Ruud Kaagman, Global Crop Unit Head, Tomatoes

First to announce ToBRFV resistance

Syngenta was the first to announce ToBRFV resistance in late 2020, and we planted the first commercial varieties in early 2021. Since then, we’ve continued to work tirelessly to provide solutions for tomato growers.

Find your fit for any method of tomato production

Our portfolio of tomato seeds includes more than 300 varieties, providing solutions that satisfy all of your customers’ preferences. From open-field growing to passive greenhouses or active greenhouses, Syngenta brings you an unrivaled choice of tomato varieties. Our approach goes far beyond simply selling tomato seeds. We create an environment where everyone succeeds, with solutions that enhance the entire value chain from field to plate. 

Tomatoes growing in open field

Open field

Open-field growing still accounts for 65% of all tomatoes grown worldwide. We’re supporting open-field tomato growers at the Naples research station. Located just south of the frost line in Florida, the Syngenta Naples research station allows for two generations per year of vegetable crops to be grown. The facility includes more than 100 open-field acres and contains more than 604 square meters of greenhouse space, in addition to controlled growth environments and laboratories to meet grower and retail demand.
Tomatoes growing in passive greenhouse

Passive greenhouse

At Syngenta, we are always innovating to support our growers across production practices. Our India Greenhouse program is a great example of an initiative to finance greenhouses that will help smallholder farmers produce larger, healthier crops that are protected from disease vectors, such as insects.

Active greenhouse

Syngenta takes a leadership role in protecting seed health and was a key initiator of the Good Seed and Plant Practices (GSPP) hygiene and prevention system that reduces the risk of Clavibacter michiganensis (Cmm) for tomato. GSPP ensures the production site’s quality management system, work methods, and information comply with standards to ensure healthy seeds and plants, and quality information per production site, entity, lot, or batch.

Maximizing grower productivity

If you process tomatoes — or supply tomatoes to processors — you know the challenges facing the industry with climate changes, drought, higher temperatures, and fewer water resources. To help growers and processors meet those challenges, Syngenta is investing in developing new varieties for the processing market.

We continue to research and develop seeds with higher Brix ratings, more dry matter, better disease resistance, and predictable, uniform ripening times.
