BASEL, Switzerland–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Syngenta Crop Protection, a global leader in agricultural innovation, has become a sponsor of the International Plant Biome Research Alliance, cementing a partnership between the research community and industry, Aims to promote the development of basic science and biomics. Sustainable agriculture.
The plant biome is the collective name for plants in a specific growing environment (e.g., soil) and the complex interactions influenced by microorganisms, nutrients, animals, climate, weather, and management practices. This complex and dynamic ecosystem plays a vital role in the health and function of crops, influencing their growth and overall well-being. For example, beneficial microorganisms in the plant biome provide plants with necessary assistance, such as fighting off pathogens and obtaining nutrients. At the same time, there may also be factors in the plant biome that cause plant disease or stress, such as pathogenic microorganisms, high temperatures, or low water availability.
Interactions within the plant biome are complex, most of which are not fully understood. Through its collaboration with the Plant Biome Consortium, Syngenta will engage in international research to understand the interactions between different components of the plant biome. The results of these studies will play a key role in ensuring sustainable food security for a growing population in the coming decades.
In a key aspect of the collaboration, Syngenta will lead a dedicated working group focused on soil health. In addition, Syngenta will work with alliance partners to identify focus areas for the development of cutting-edge bio-solutions and support science-based regulations to promote access to the bio-products farmers need.
“As an agricultural innovation leader with a strong global presence, we have a deep understanding of the plant biome,” said Camilla Corsi, global research director for Crop Protection at Syngenta. “We invest in complex tools to uncover complex interactions within the plant biome, such as chemical signals and their impact on everything from root growth to plant stress responses. We are excited to collaborate with others at the forefront of scientific research to bring our findings to into practical solutions for farmers and, together, lay the foundation for a more sustainable future in agriculture.”
“Syngenta’s expertise and resources will make a significant contribution to our mission of unlocking the potential of plant biome research to benefit agriculture and the environment,” said Kellye Eversole, executive director of the Plant Biome Alliance. “We welcome Syngenta’s contribution to industry leadership. commitment to collaboration between authors and the research community, and are particularly pleased to have them taking a leadership role in our newly formed Soil Health Working Group.”
Syngenta invests heavily in delivering new solutions to improve agriculture’s environmental footprint. From new technologies that precisely address farmers’ pest challenges to biologics that improve plants’ ability to utilize available nutrients, Syngenta is at the forefront of transforming agriculture. Its participation in the International Plant Biology Consortium reflects its strong commitment to being a collaborator of choice.
