Following last year’s expansion at the vegetable seed research and development centres in El Ejido (Almería) and Murcia (La Puebla), Syngenta announced an investment of 9.6 million euros in new technological facilities in Almería.  


Syngenta also announced an investment of 9.6 million euros to expand and equip its R&D facilities in El Ejido with the latest technology. The announcement was made at a meeting held with the Department of Urban Development, the Mayor of the town hall of El Ejido, and the managers of the Syngenta center in the town.

José Manuel Zapata, Director of Syngenta's research centers in Almería and Murcia, said, "This new investment will revitalize the rural environment in the province of Almería and strengthen the already recognized international leadership of this province in the development of cutting-edge technologies in plant improvement and protection." 

Last year, the company announced an investment of 2.4 million euros to expand its R&D centres in Almería and Murcia. With this new commitment to Spain, Syngenta is reaffirming its strategy of accelerating innovation in new technologies to boost the farmers’ productivity and sustainable profitability.


This significant investment is intended to provide the center with new facilities that will expand the existing lines of research. A new Plant Innovation Centre will be built. In this new facility, there will be research activities on different crops in greenhouses and outdoors. The aim is to make this R&D center a global reference in leafy vegetable crops, such as tomato, pepper, cucumber, courgette and melon.

This was announced at the headquarters of the El Ejido City Council, where company representatives shared all the details of the investment with Mayor Francisco Góngora, who said, "it is wonderful news that an internationally renowned company has decided to build this innovation center in Spain and to do so specifically in El Ejido."

Syngenta is one of the world's leading companies dedicated to developing and improving plant varieties for more than 150 years. Today, it is the most global organization in the sector, with research teams operating in more than 60 countries, which brings its innovation to the rest of the world.
