Syngenta and DSM Partner to Address Microbial-based Ag Solution

On November 6th, Syngenta and DSM announced an R&D partnership to develop microbial-based agricultural solutions such as bio-controls, bio-pesticides, and bio-stimulants. Research applications will include crop protection from pests and diseases and enhancing plant productivity and fertility.

It is estimated that the use of biological solutions will experience double-digit growth over the next decade, and may reach up to 10 percent of the global crop protection market by 2030. Trish Malarkey, Syngenta head of R&D, explained, “New microbial-based solutions will contribute to meeting the challenge of producing more food from fewer resources, benefiting farmers, consumers, the environment and society.”
