OPEN DATA'S POTENTIAL FOR AGRICULTURE
"Syngenta" is the world leader in the production plant protection products and seeds. The company in its modern form was created in late 2000 as a result of the merger of agro-subdivisions of the companies "Novartis" and "AstraZeneca", more famous in the pharmaceutical industry, and already on 01.01.2001 Syngenta LLC was registered in Ukraine.
Together with the production of seeds, the company integrates the entire cycle of work with them: selection, production, preparation and sales. "Syngenta" offers ready-made protection systems and anti-resistant programs for different cultures, develops and introduces fundamentally new agricultural equipment. Realization of many successful projects of the company would have been impossible without preliminary field research conducted by the biological research unit (R&D). In 2017, the Chinese chemical company China National Chemical Corp. (ChemChina) completed the takeover of the Swiss company Syngenta AG.
