Syngenta has made a public commitment, The Good Growth Plan, to address the huge challenges of feeding a growing world population sustainably. One of the key pillars of this commitment is to help biodiversity flourish. This is both for the sake of biodiversity itself as well as sustainable intensive agriculture, since the latter depends on intensifying the contribution of ecosystems services from biodiversity. Biodiversity helps build the resilience needed to make agriculture sustainable in many ways. It helps to regulate nutrient-cycling and control pests, and provides pollination services, diverse crops and genetic stocks for plant breeding.
We are helping growers to create rich habitats in field margins and riparian zones alongside rivers. We’re promoting managed forests and agro-forestry, which also help protect water bodies. And to preserve crop diversity, we’re working with groups that conserve wild crop relatives to integrate them into farming practice.
The dataset includes aggregated hectares of farmland impacted by biodiversity conservation practices established or managed in collaboration with Syngenta.
