DOWNERS GROVE, Ill. — Syngenta announced plans to build a new R&D Innovation and Customer Experience Center in the heart of the U.S. Corn Belt.
“This new site will enable us to accelerate our innovation in Seeds R&D while strengthening our focus on delivering new capabilities through investments in breeding and digital technologies,” said Trevor Hohls, Global Head Seeds Development. “This is a strong statement of our commitment to innovation and providing our scientists with the resources to bring the best products and technologies to solve the key problems that growers face.”
In addition to showcasing Syngenta’s leading technology and innovation, this new site will spotlight how Syngenta is transforming product development through on-farm collaboration with growers.
This investment builds on Syngenta’s continued commitment to Seeds R&D in the U.S. In addition to Syngenta’s global innovation center in Research Triangle Park, N.C., the company opened a new $30 million Trait Conversion Accelerator in Nampa, Idaho last August.
Construction on the Northern Illinois site is expected to begin early next year with the site scheduled to open by the end of 2022.
