Seeding the Future of Agriculture in Asia
Accounting for 19% of all food and agricultural exports, Asia Pacific is a significant contributor to the global food chain. China and India are global leaders in the production of wheat, rice, cotton, and tea, while Vietnam and Indonesia are among the top five largest producers of coffee beans.
Syngenta Asia Pacific recognizes that farmers are our food heroes. As a leading science-based agriculture and technology company, we have a responsibility to empower and support our smallholder farmers as they navigate these key trends on the horizon:
We must support our farmers and empower them to meet these trends as agriculture shifts in Asia Pacific. We will focus our attention on building the capacity and capabilities of our farmers so that they can prosper. We will give them the tools they need – technology, agronomy advice, digital, mechanization, while ensuring that there is educational support for implementation. Our aim will also be to encourage equitable participation for all farmers, be it women, younger people or the elderly.
