Syngenta's new "Nema Digital" solution was presented at Agrishow 2024 through its Cropwise platform. 


According to the multinational, this solution uses artificial intelligence (AI) and computational modeling to manage nematodes in soybean cultivation.

Through a database, the tool tracks the history of past crops, areas, and periods where infestations of this pest may occur in the field. Through this process, the present nematode genera are identified, along with the best control methods for affected areas.



After an initial identification of the affected areas, targeted in-person sample collections are performed through artificial intelligence. Finally, through the nematological report provided by the laboratory, the genus and species present in the area can be identified. "The Nema Digital is the technology that helps the producer identify areas possibly affected by nematodes," explains Syngenta.


The multinational says this is the "world's first commercial digital solution for diagnosing infestations of parasitic nematodes in soybean crops."

The company assured, "In all cases, we will deliver a mapping of nematode-infested areas, an evaluation of management efficiency, and consultancy with a nematologist to discuss the best management techniques."


Feroz Sheikh.jpegFeroz Sheikh, Chief Information and Digital Officer at Syngenta, was the global executive present at Agrishow 2024. "The drive for innovation, coupled with the development of solutions capable of enhancing productivity sustainably, are the main features of Cropwise," he said.

At Agrishow, he explained, "we presented our technologies not only for pest and disease monitoring but for the entire crop production cycle, all currently available on a single platform to facilitate farmer management."

"It is exciting to see how artificial intelligence empowers farmers to increase their yields through precision agriculture and, at the same time, be sustainable, allowing a more rational and efficient use of resources in agricultural practices," Sheik added. 

"The insights from the use of artificial intelligence will enable predictive and rapid analyses for more informed decisions," he said in conclusion.
