At the National NAFB Convention in Kansas City, we visited with Bruce Battles. He is the Technical Solutions Development Manager for Syngenta.

Our conversation dealt with corn and soybeans. Specifically we got into insect control.

Bruce told us: 'Syngenta now has a team called The Bug Squad to provide farmers with insect control insight, recommendations and solutions.'

He further explained: 'The Bug Squad is an elite team of experts to help farmers take a more proactive, integrated and long term approach to insect control.'

Bruce also pointed out the amazing fact that: 'Syngenta has produced 4 traits in 5 years.' Further saying: ' We've had a busy R and D engine.'
