Syngenta Exits Sorghum Seed Business
Syngenta has formed an agreement with Golden Acres Genetics, Ltd., Waco, TX, to transfer all existing Syngenta sorghum seed inventory to Golden Acres effective as of June 3, 2011. The agreement covers all Syngenta sorghum hybrids, including forage, grain and sudangrass products.
“We’re pleased that Golden Acres is acquiring Syngenta’s sorghum inventory and will continue to provide farmers with high-quality hybrid sorghum seed,” said Steve Sick, Syngenta sorghum product manager.
“With our recently announced integrated business strategy, Syngenta remains fully focused on our products and technology platforms in core crops to fuel our company’s future growth through new and innovative crop solutions developed from our broad seeds, seed care and crop protection portfolio.”
“Golden Acres is excited to add these proven Syngenta sorghum products to our offering for 2012,” said Lou Buice, president, Golden Acres Genetics, Ltd. “This expansion of our sorghum portfolio will allow us to offer a broader line of high performing hybrids to growers – not only across our Southern market area, but everywhere sorghum is grown. These hybrids will further help us in our mission to professionally serve farmers with custom seed solutions.”
