raits 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-step chain, the company sells its products to cooperatives or independent distributors, which then sell to the grower as the end user. In the three-step system, the company sells to distributors or cooperative unions, which act as wholesalers and sell the product to independent dealers or primary cooperatives before on-selling to growers. The company also sells directly to growers in some countries. Research and Development The company spent $1,376 million on research and development for the integrated Crop Protection and Seeds businesses in 2014. Competition The company’s key competitors are agribusinesses or large chemical companies headquartered in Western Europe and North America and include BASF, Bayer AG, The Dow Chemical Company, DuPont and its Pioneer Hi-Bred International Inc. (Pioneer) subsidiary, and Monsanto. Other significant competitors in the seeds business are Vilmorin, KWS, and Takii.

Syngenta Flowers is an integral part of flowers, home and garden. The combination of flowers genetic and chemical controls facilitates cross-category collaboration and innovation.
