Improving the livelihood of smallholder farmers

Field stories

Syngenta Foundation programmes impact people on the ground, in all areas from high-tech seeds to markets.

Dishing up new choice improvements
With Seeds2B, our Foundation helps smallholders improve their yields. In Indonesia, a potato partnership is shaping up even better than expected. And in Kenya, potatoes are proving an attractive new option for pastoralists. But we also want improved varieties of other crops to match farmers' needs. So we're busy encouraging demand-led breeding. Like to know more? Then please get in touch.
