Developing higher-yielding crop varieties is essential to producing more from less. One answer lies in agriculture’s next science revolution – analytics.
The Syngenta R&D soybean breeding team used advanced mathematics and new tools to improve the process of growing a wider variety of healthy crops. The tools dramatically improved project lead training, decision-making and planning.
The soybean breeding program won the 2015 Franz Edelman Award, the most prestigious recognition of applying advanced analytics to benefit business and humanitarian outcomes.
The power of analytics is truly transformational in agriculture, and we are now customizing these tools for use on corn, sunflowers, rice and even watermelons.
