• GA21 corn approved for cultivation
• Paves the way for the development of new corn technologies in Asia Pacific

Syngenta announced today that it received cultivation approval for its corn trait GA21 in the Philippines, following biosafety and other required assessments by the Department of Agriculture. The GA21 trait genetically enhances corn seeds with a built-in resistance to herbicides, offering growers increased productivity and reduced production costs.

In addition, the cultivation of GA21 corn will enable Syngenta to accelerate the development and introduction of better hybrid varieties and new traits, responding to the growing demand across the Asia Pacific region.

This approval further strengthens Syngenta’s portfolio of high-quality seeds and allows us to continue bringing advanced agricultural technology to the growers in this region, said Peter Pickering, Region Head APAC, Syngenta Seeds.
