Agri business company Syngenta today said it has developed a new integrated crop solution to help boost productivity of groundnut growers in Gujarat and enhance its export potential.

It has also established five Syngenta Learning Centres (SLCs) in Junagadh District, where the company will train farmers on a complete package of agronomy and crop solutions for groundnut, the company said in a release.

The intervention has resulted in a yield growth of about 25-30 per cent compared to the conventional farmer practice, the release added.

“We are working towards improving the productivity of groundnut in Gujarat, which will help in reducing the burden on the imports bill, and support India in reaching world-class productivity standards”, Syngenta South Asia Crop Marketing, Specialty Head Anand Gudihal said.
