Syngenta Bangladesh to explore world market

The Switzerland-based company, which has been operating in 90 countries including Bangladesh with more than 28,000 employees, is going to start exporting vegetable seeds from Bangladesh to other countries.

“The first consignment of five tonnes of bean seeds will go to India on March 27”, Mahbub Rahman of the Research and Development wing of Syngenta Bangladesh said.

He also said another consignment of five tonnes of bean seeds would follow the first one soon and eventually Syngenta Bangladesh would start exporting tomato and okra seeds to India.

He said all the seeds would initially go to Syngenta India and to Syngenta companies in other countries in the long run.

“There is a good export market for Bangladeshi seeds as the quality and price of the seeds produced here are comparatively attractive for importers,” the Syngenta official said.

Mahbub was not sure about the size of the seed export market in India, but expected that his company would get good response from Indian farmers.

Currently, Bangladesh is exporting sesame seeds to different countries, but the export amount was not significant. With exporting vegetable seeds, the earnings from this non-traditional sector is expected to increase considerably.
