Syngenta, InterGrain JV for barley breeding

BASEL, SWITZERLAND: Syngenta has entered into a barley breeding collaboration with InterGrain, an Australia-based crop breeding company. The collaboration will enable Syngenta and InterGrain to exchange germplasm to develop innovative integrated solutions for barley growers across the world. Syngenta will gain exclusive global commercialization rights for all new barley varieties developed, and exclusive rights to commercialize existing varieties in the InterGrain portfolio outside Australia.

“This initiative is good news for Australian barley growers as it integrates the breeding and commercialization expertise of the two companies and combines two complementary germplasm pools. This will increase productivity and enable InterGrain to retain its position as the leading barley breeding company in Australia,” said Dale Baker, Chairman, InterGrain.
