In our Good Growth Plan, Syngenta commits to strive for carbon neutral agriculture, while improving biodiversity and soil health. Specifically for soil health, our commitment is to promote and support in-field adoption of certain soil management and use practices that will sustain soil productivity and support crop productivity for a long time.
Sustainable farming needs resilient, healthy soils to secure our food supply for the long term and help increase yields right now. Poor management practices degrade millions of hectares.
The Soil dataset shows aggregated hectares of farmland reported since reporting year 2014 that benefit from soil conservation practices established in collaboration with Syngenta. The dataset also includes the project location, the type of soil practice, and the carbon benefit potential. The number of hectares of benefited farmland is tracked locally through in-field assessments, documented, and reported by project managers.
