Argentina has been witnessing a rising trend of professional soybean seed treatment with an increasingly large number of producers taking to it following the launch of Syngenta’s Plenus in 2010.
As per industry estimates, about 25 percent of the certified seed available on the commercial circuit is now treated professionally.
Also, the new seed law will foster the use of certified seeds and will significantly impact the rate at which this technology is being adopted.
In this context, Syngenta and Agroservicions Pampeanos have signed an agreement under which both companies will cooperate in developing professional seed treatment techniques. Agroservicios Pampeanos will use Syngenta’s products for professional seed treatment.
Since 2011, Agroservicios Pampeanos has been offering customers the TPS (Professional Seed Treatment) technology through five centers. “We are proud to add Syngenta’s products to our TPS offer. This alliance will allow us access to the best technology to ensure maximum seed protection,” underlined Carlos Faricelli, Business Manager at Agroservicios Pampeanos.
Carlos Becco, director of the Commercial Unit of Multipliers and Seed Treatment at Syngenta, affirmed: “This alliance is excellent news for Syngenta as it allows us to continue to bring other crops under the Plenus professional treatment. Thus, the customers of Agroservicios Pampeanos can now access the best technology. The growing trend of soybean seed treatment will go a long way in promoting the cause of more sustainable agriculture.”
