Once again, Syngenta opens the doors of its research and development centre in Torrepacheco (Murcia) to showcase the latest innovations in plant breeding in the main leafy crops.

Héctor Vidal, PDS Leafy & Brassicas at Syngenta Spain “This year we want to show through the name of these sessions, Salads Passion, all the effort, care, dedication and, in short, the passion that a large number of Syngenta professionals put into their work throughout the year, which will be reflected in our open doors week”.

Syngenta will present this year several innovative projects that respond to its commitment to sustainable agriculture “The Good Growth Plan” and that sets, among the objectives for 2025, the investment of 2,000 million dollars in new developments that will contribute to make agriculture more sustainable and to mitigate the effects of climate change in agriculture”.

A large number of innovations will be presented during these days and will be on display in Torrepacheco. They will be related to all varieties and will improve the already good field performance.

“The new varieties for romaine and mini romaine lettuce, baby leaf, brassicas and spinach, among others, are the result of many months of work and a proof of how Syngenta seeks to incorporate new varieties that meet the increasingly demanding needs of consumers in terms of taste and also our serious commitment to reducing food waste throughout the food chain,” stated Héctor Vidal.
