SFSA, Syngenta and funding
We are a non-profit organization established by Syngenta under Swiss law. We focus on “pre-commercial farmers”; Syngenta works primarily with commercial growers. We can access company expertise, but are legally independent and have our own Board. Syngenta provides core funding, and is sometimes a project partner. All our project partners "bring something to the table". This does not have to be money! However, we also welcome investors in projects and spin-offs.
In 2020, we began a formal volunteering program for Syngenta employees keen to help our partners. The first opportunities were in the Seeds for Impact initiative.
You'll find our activity Reviews, papers and presentations under Resources.
