Syngenta Foundation For Sustainable Agriculture
The Syngenta Foundation operates across product streams following a pipeline approach (Proof of Concept, Scale-Up, Handover).
Our current streams are:
- Risk Management and Financial Inclusion for smallholder farmers, implementing and scaling up affordable agricultural insurance products and risk transfer mechanism to access credit;
- Access to Seeds, which includes investments in plant breeding and technology transfer of new varieties to smallholders;
Running across these three, and feeding into each of them, is our work in R&D and in Policy.
- Research & Development includes, for example, our involvement in partnerships for the improvement of tef and wheat.
