Syngenta Vegetable Seeds has announced the dates for its globally-popular Fields of Innovation event, taking place 28 September – 1 October in The Netherlands. This year’s event will offer attendees the option to attend in person or virtually, utilizing leading technologies to experience the very best that Syngenta Vegetable Seeds has to offer.
Every day Syngenta strives to ensure growers have the best quality seeds to help feed the world. Growers large and small face increasing challenges caused by changes in our environment – volatile climate conditions, severe soil erosion and increasing biodiversity loss. Additionally, they must manage evolving consumer expectations and views on agricultural technology.
Fields of Innovation will spotlight our efforts to provide solutions to help growers overcome these challenges.
Sustainable technology refers to innovations that are designed to reduce agriculture’s contribution to climate change, mitigate its effect on the food supply and provide growers with the tools they need to manage their land sustainably.
Syngenta’s varieties at Fields of Innovation have been selected specifically to help promote sustainable business growth for growers and the whole value chain. In honor of the United Nations General Assembly designating 2021 as the “International Year of Fruits and Vegetables,” we are showcasing more crops than ever before. White cabbage, red cabbage, Savoy cabbage, our newly introduced pointed cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, brussels sprouts, iceberg lettuce, babyleaf, romaine, spinach, beans, peas, sweetcorn, onions and more.
This year’s event will feature an exclusive, invitation-only experience to visit the field in person, helping support a safe environment for all attendees. Those receiving invitations from all over the world can expect a customized visit, highlighting innovations that suit their needs, such as brassica varieties for Africa or onions for Northern Europe.
The event is open to everyone virtually with the opportunity to experience Syngenta’s crops and varieties digitally. While taking a virtual tour of the field, visitors can ask questions via Live Chat to one of the available Field Experts and create your own personal field book, featuring only those varieties that you are most interested in. Registration is quick and easy via: foi.syngentavegetables.com. Syngenta’s Field Experts from across the world will be on hand all week to guide visitors through their visit to Fields of Innovation, whether it will be on the field, or virtually!
