YOUR BLOGGER, Zac B. Sarian, has been invited to participate in the Syngenta Media Workshop to be held on October 29-31, 2012 in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.

Andrew McConville, the company’s head of corporate affairs for Asia-Pacific, said the participants will discuss topics such as:

  • Sustainable agriculture – increasing yields while protecting the land’s resourcesย 
  • Working with smallholder farmers and benefiting rural economiesย 
  • Biotechnology and its role in agricultureย 
  • Integrated solutions and the need for a complete toolbox of modern technologies.

Aside from indoor discussions, the program includes a field trip to better understand corn as a key crop for both Vietnam and the Asia-Pacific. McConville said we will have the opportunity to interact with local corn growers. We will also learn about Syngenta’s contribution to corn production not only in Vietnam but also elsewhere in the world.

He assures that this important topic of sustainable agriculture, set against the exciting story of Vietnam’s agricultural growth, will provide a unique experience for us.
