ROME, 03 DEC – “The truly sustainable future of agriculture (I call it regenerative agriculture) is taking shape. It is a future driven by improving soil and agricultural health through digital technologies, and we are already seeing the benefits these precision tools will offer in the coming years. ” These are the words of the CEO of Syngenta, Erik Fyrwald, who the company has relaunched on the occasion of World Soil Day 2021 which will be celebrated on Sunday 5 December. For Petra Laux, head cp business sustainability, “regenerative agriculture is not a specific technology or methodology, but rather numerous agricultural practices that help us achieve the results we want. These results include the efficient use of land, to protect uncultivated territories, but also the soil where we grow our crops for future generations ”. “There are specific incentives or policies that can accelerate the transition to this new agricultural model -, continues Petra Laux -. For example, there is a need for a tailor-made regulatory framework for biologicals, if we want more innovation for new biologicals solutions in the field of crop protection, or to ensure satisfactory internet coverage in rural areas in order to be able to use the tools widely. we have available, or facilitate the selection of plants through access to the most modern breeding technologies. We need to ‘listen to the science’ as we work to safeguard our food system ”. (HANDLE).
