Syngenta is seeking solutions that deter birds (ducks, sparrow, pigeons, black birds etc.) from damaging crops such as rice in Japan and cereals and corn in Europe, from seed to full stage crop.

Bird damage has long been a persistent challenge faced by farmers and results in reduced plant stand and ultimately lowers crop yields. Traditional scare tactics and physical barriers have provided some relief, but they fall short in offering sustainable, cost-effective, and non-harmful solutions.
