Ag Connections to be wholly-owned subsidiary of Syngenta

 After a 14-year relationship, Syngenta is making Ag Connections a wholly-owned subsidiary to accelerate growth of digital solutions and enhance whole-farm management.

Ag Connections provides farm management software solutions and works extensively with Syngenta on its AgriEdge Excelsior program, which integrates products, services, risk management and technology for growers.

The collaboration between Syngenta and Ag Connections remains focused on providing growers better tools within their farming operations to empower confident decision-making. This stronger link will enable more agility and speed in decision-making, and direct access to resources needed to scale up and meet grower needs, according to Syngenta.

Ag Connections’ operations will continue in Kentucky, and there is no job loss as a result of this transaction. Ag Connections’ employees and systems remain separate from Syngenta. Both the Ag Connections Privacy Pledge and the Syngenta Privacy Pledge remain intact, ensuring growers must authorize use of their data.

Both Syngenta and Ag Connections signed and support the Agriculture Technology Providers “Privacy and Security Principles for Farm Data” of the American Farm Bureau Federation.
