Syngenta reports sales increase for Q3

 

 

Syngenta's sales in the third quarter of 2011 increased by 16% at constant exchange rates.

 

Volume expanded by 13%, representing the sixth consecutive quarter of double digit growth, and prices rose 3%.

 

Syngenta, in the first nine months of the year, sales were up 13% at constant exchange rates at US$10.4 billion.

 

In Latin America, our leading offers enabled growth of 27% across the portfolio. A robust soy crop price and the expectation of lower production in the US are leading to increased investment by soy growers in Brazil and Argentina.

 

Corn sales were also up strongly with rapid adoption of both herbicides and traits. In Europe, Africa and the Middle East, sales increased by 10% led by France and the CIS.
