2020 Season Field Trials

About our Trials

Syngenta extensively trials new varieties and our top performers throughout North America. In addition to our internal trialing, we use these strategically located trials to measure performance in real conditions. Our expert team of technical leads evaluates trials in person to make sure that varieties perform for growers and that they can provide region-specific guidance to our customers.

Use the map above to find and view our top performers for locations nearest to you.

He will review Syngenta’s new products via photos and videos compiled by our experts from some of the most important regional trials and open houses in the industry.
