es and specialty crops providing long lasting field performance, protection of new growth in plants and disease control. ORONDIS premixes with various active ingredients would be sold worldwide within one global brand family that contains suffixes for differentiation of the mixtures. ORONDIS received registration from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency in 2015 and is expected to be launched in 2016. ADEPIDYN (pydiflumetofen) is a spectrum fungicide belonging to carboxamide chemical class, having an SDHI mode of action. It delivers a step change in efficacy against leaf spots and control of powdery mildew across multiple crops. In addition ADEPIDYN is highly active on difficult to control diseases, such as Botrytis, Sclerotinia, Corynespora and Fusarium Head Blight, which cause severe damage on key crops. Products containing ADEPIDYN are being developed for canola, cereals, corn, soybean, specialty crops, vegetables and Lawn and Garden across the globe, with the first product launch expected in 2017. Insecticides Cyantraniliprole mixtures (MINECTO): The company acquired from E.I. DuPont de Nemours and Co. (DuPont) the right to use cyantraniliprole in mixtures with Syngenta insect control products. Cyantraniliprole is an insecticide that also controls sucking pests and is complementary to the chlorantraniliprole insect control product used for Lepidoptera pest control that the company sells in mixtures with its own insect control products. Seeds Products in Development Field crops The company’s first hybrid malting barley variety has started the registration process. The company is working towards developing corn seeds across various maturities with stress tolerance and improved agronomic characteristics, including developing the next generation corn rootworm control trait with a mode of action and high efficiency, and stacking multiple modes of action for the same target insects (trait pyramiding). High yield SAFECROSS hybrids with improved disease resistance and stress tolerance in winter oilseed rape. In rice, the company is developing a hybrid portfolio by combining its legacy breeding programs. A range of soybean varieties in late stage development deliver expanded spectrum control of soybean cyst nematodes through utilization of alternate native trait sources of resistance and combines this control with tolerance to sudden death syndrome, iron deficiency chlorosis and phytophthora root rot. In South America the development of a proprietary portfolio with herbicide tolerance and insect control10 varieties covering major maturity groups and market segments is well advanced. Sugar beet with second generation nematode tolerance for the European market and with disease and virus resistance in combination with Genuity Roundup Ready herbicide tolerance trait for the North American market. Sunflower with integrating broomrape, herbicide and disease resistance. Healthy oil varieties of high oleic sunflower comprising higher heat stability of plant oils for frying. In wheat, Fusarium tolerance, high yield, improved and novel quality, new disease resistance and drought tolerance. In addition, the company is developing a hybrid wheat technology and portfolio, capitalizing on breeding expertise and conventional germplasm, some commercial positions in conventional wheat in North America and Europe, Africa and Middle East, and prior experience in hybrid barley. Vegetables The company is advancing abiotic stress tolerant traits for rootstocks for the high value tomato and pepper markets; developing new fruit sizes in melons and watermelons tailored to shrinking family sizes in North America and Europe; and bringing forward new consumer and value chain traits for textures that improve the quality of fresh cut fruit. It engages in vegetable research and development to advance convenience traits for consumers. Marketing and Distribution The company’s products are sold to the end user through independent distributors and dealers, majority of which also handle other manufacturers’ products. Its products are sold through a two-step or three-step distribution chain. In the two-s
