Syngenta raises sales targets for strategic crops
ZURICH, Sept 24
ZURICH, Sept 24 (Reuters) - Syngenta AG, the world's largest agrochemicals company, has set itself a new target, with sales for its eight key strategic crops seen reaching $25 billion by the end of the decade, compared with a previous target of over $22 billion.
Syngenta makes products to kill weeds and bugs as well as genetically modified seeds.
The company cited the rapid integration of its commercial teams and broad-based innovation as reasons for the upgrade of its prior target, announced in February 2011.
