Learn about Monsanto Company's two main operating divisions and its main competitors within each sector, including The Mosaic Company, Agrium and Dow Chemical.
Switzerland's Syngenta, the crop protection company acquired by ChemChina, has vowed to bulk up its seeds business and join the chase for assets rival Bayer must sell to gain regulatory approval for its takeover of Monsanto. Syngenta, a distant third in the global seeds market behind Monsanto and Dupont, is determined not to lose ground on its rivals as the seeds and crop-protection sector continues an unprecedented wave of mergers and acquisitions. The Swiss group, the world's leading crop chemicals maker, itself fought off unwanted suitor Monsanto before agreeing to be taken over by ChemChina to secure better access to Asian markets and is now targeting its own acquisitions and licensing deals.
Switzerland's Syngenta, the crop protection company acquired by ChemChina, said it would pursue deals to become the third-biggest player in the seeds industry. "The goal is to strengthen Syngenta's leadership position in crop protection and to become an ambitious number three in seeds," the company said in a news release on Tuesday. Assets put up for sale by rivals involved in merger deals to allay anti-trust concerns could play a role in that, Chief Executive Erik Fyrwald told a news conference at the group's Basel headquarters.
