Syngenta launches enhanced soybean resources

· New Virtual Classroom serves as one-stop shop for soybean information

· Soybean blog discusses relevant and timely topics

· Register for the Soybean Insider and a chance to win a digital picture frame

Syngenta has converted its soybean crop page on FarmAssist.com into a Virtual Classroom that will feature a variety of agronomic and product solutions information combined with the extensive crop knowledge held by Syngenta to help growers maximize soybean production.

“The demand for soybean continues to rise while the agronomic challenges expand,” said Wendell Calhoun, communications lead, Syngenta. “And U.S. soybean production requires more intensive crop management in order to maximize yield to meet this demand. As a leader in the soybean industry, Syngenta is proud to offer a resource focused entirely on providing solutions to the agronomic challenges faced by soybean growers and retailers so they can produce a successful yield.”

The Virtual Classroom, located at http://Soybeans.FarmAssist.com, is an all-encompassing source for Syngenta soybean information. It includes commodities information, links to product information, multimedia and links to other valuable resources found on FarmAssist.com, such as the Pest Solutions Resource. A main feature of the Virtual Classroom is the regularly updated Soybean Insider blog, which discusses the most relevant and timely topics. The weekly blog, along with multimedia, can be delivered to your email weekly upon registration.

To receive the Soybean Insider in your inbox, register at www.FarmAssist.com/SoyInsider. Throughout the month of April, Syngenta will award a digital picture frame to the first new registrant of each day.

To further correspond with the enhanced soybean resources, new mobile-friendly product pages have also been launched for all Syngenta Crop Protection products. “No need to dig through pages of websites, because we are putting the resources at your fingertips,” said Calhoun.
