Behind the scenes of Syngenta’s Jealott’s Hill

LONDON, UK: London is to be the host city for the 4th Biopesticides Europe Conference from 29 -30 May 2019. Syngenta is offering a peek behind the scenes at its Jealott’s Hill International Research Centre.

The Global and European biopesticides market has continued to grow significantly over past few years. With increased direction from the authorities and growing demand for sustainable agriculture, it is certain that the biopesticides market will continue to experience unprecedented growth. There is, however, still uncertainty from within the industry on how to get products effectively into the market. Issues with regulation and registration still prove challenging.

This 2-day event will bring together key industry stakeholders from the biopesticides industry to discuss the challenges faced and the future opportunities. The conference will also discuss the current overview of the markets, with highlights from experts on the progression of the biopesticides market and new insights and innovation on projects in the pipeline.

During the afternoon of 28th May (Tuesday), a day before the conference, a select group of attendees will have the unique opportunity to visit Syngenta’s Jealott’s Hill International Research Centre, Berkshire, UK. Jealott’s Hill is a key site in Syngenta’s global Research and Development network.
