SynTech opens important new US Mid-West field site

Trait trial in corn

Trait trial in corn

SynTech has created a new satellite station near Ames, Iowa, as the latest step towards its strategic goal of full Mid-West coverage. This location complements our existing sites in Iowa, Illinois and Kansas, and provides specific capability to conduct trials on the Iowa Black Soils. It will therefore be a key location for seeds/traits trials as well as agrochemical trials on this important soil type.
