On the heels of a rapidly growing biologicals market — which is expected to nearly double in size over the next five years — Syngenta has acquired Valagro, a leading biologicals company. With more than 700 employees, 13 subsidiaries and eight production sites worldwide, Valagro will continue to operate as an independent brand in the market, leveraging the resources of Syngenta to accelerate its innovation and growth.

Valagro’s well-established portfolio and capabilities complement the current range of Syngenta biostimulants and biocontrols and add opportunities for farmers to meet agronomic challenges through the innovative solutions in the Syngenta Crop Protection portfolio.

Reinforcing its goal of providing farmers with more product choices, the Syngenta acquisition is part of the company’s $2 billion commitment to make agriculture more climate resilient and sustainable, as outlined in its Good Growth Plan. This plan provides a framework for the ways in which the company is addressing sustainability and the critical challenges the world faces in feeding a growing population.
