Syngenta mobile website for growers

March 15, 2013  By Press release

March 15, 2013 – Syngenta Canada Inc. recently announced the launch of an interactive and user-centric mobile website – – to the agricultural community in Canada.

This new website gives growers fingertip access to agriculture-related information based on their specific preferences.

“Our new mobile site is a step-change in the mobile experience currently available to growers,” stated Trevor Heck, head of marketing for Syngenta Canada Inc. “This app-like experience is an exciting advancement, providing growers with information to make timely, informed production decisions – wherever they are.”


The new mobile site also addresses grower interest in weather and crop commodity apps, cited by a majority of growers in recent research as the two most used types of apps on their smartphones, on a daily basis.

While provides weather, market or product information, growers who register for the site with their name, postal code, crop information and email address (for login purposes only), will receive customized content that is updated regularly, including:

  • Local weather – specific to their area based on postal code;
  • Market information – detailed futures prices for selected crops, key market indicators and the current value of the Canadian dollar;
  • Agronomic news – local news and information that is relevant to selected crops, together with national and international agriculture-related information. 

Additionally, Syngenta product information (including product updates) is tailored specifically to the grower’s chosen crops, providing direct access to the most current resources, including pests controlled, application timing and rates, tank-mix compatibility and product labels.

All this information fits neatly on the grower’s mobile device screen thanks to the fact that has been created using responsive design technology. This means the content will automatically adjust to fit the screen of the viewing device.

“We are excited by what the new mobile site offers growers,” added Heck, “and we are confident it will become a site of choice for busy, on-the-go growers.”
