Recipe development and Quality Assessment

Core Function

Our experts in recipe development focus on the compatibility of products in combination, shelf life and customization to meet local crop needs, seed types, and the specific requirements of customers. Syngenta is a global leader in formulation science and since good formulations set the foundations of a successful recipe we guarantee optimal performance of base recipes across the market. We also work on improving differentiated additives to be combined with those solutions.

What we do

  • Film coating polymer and color for quality appearance 
  • Optimized for coverage, dust-off, abrasion and seed flow 
  • Recipes customized for your local needs 
  • Recipe calculators and digital tools 
  • Compatibility testing with inoculants and micronutrients 

How customers benefit  

  • Seed coverage: the seeds are uniformly coated to give the best visual appearance 
  • Minimal dust: Dust is reduced as much as possible by good recipe design and application process 
  • Accurate AI loading: Each seed is treated with the right amount of active ingredient 
  • Low rub-off: The seed looks as good on the farm as it does right after treatment 
  • Seed flow: For easy bagging and transfer to planting equipment 
  • Easy planting: Good seed flow with no build-up and accurate seed placement in precision planters and seed drills
