Technical Services

Syngenta has committed to providing New Zealand growers with the best crop protection solutions, but that commitment does not end at the product launch.

By continuing the research & development (R&D) of existing products, our Technical Services team extends product knowledge, delivers product training, and develops protocols for new product evaluations and commercial demonstrations, as well as managing technical enquiries.

Located in New Zealand and Australia, our Technical Services team brings excellent technical knowledge, ability to interpret scientific data and intrinsic commercial understanding. Many are regarded as industry leaders in their field of expertise.

Our Technical Services team members collaborate with advisors to deepen their understanding of the solutions offered by Syngenta and how our technologies can help growers to realise new levels of productivity, profitability and quality on their farms.

The team also introduces and familiarises users with research compounds prior to release, demonstrating how key products from Syngenta compare to industry standards in the field, evaluating novel use patterns, programmes, solutions and application techniques, and ensuring the delivery of scientifically sound technical material.

Our team is strongly focused on leveraging the best of Syngenta R&D and agricultural technologies from around the world that are relevant to our in-country agriculture systems, to deliver growers integrated solutions. Our solutions are trialled and proven under local conditions.

The extensive field experience of our team and their close interaction with advisors helps us to identify new product development opportunities and continued innovation.

Our Technical Services team also provides in-field support for product performance enquiries to enable fast and efficient resolutions. Managing these technical enquiries doesn’t end as soon as the problem is solved. Our team looks for ways that Syngenta can share new knowledge to help growers get the most from their crop protection investment.

Our Technical Services team undertakes a number of activities including:

Tailored product training

Our team use their extensive knowledge to develop and facilitate a broad range of tailored product training on specialty areas including agrichemicals used in horticulture and broadacre crops, agronomy, entomology, plant pathology and resistance management.

Training sessions are targeted at agronomists, independent advisors and growers who gain a better understanding of the Syngenta product range and how they fit into crop protection programmes.

New Product Evaluations and Commercial Demonstrations

Our Technical Services team believes that the best way to share product knowledge, particularly when introducing new products, is to conduct new product evaluations and commercial demonstrations in the field. We make a significant investment into conducting new product evaluations and commercial demonstrations across New Zealand and Australia.
