Syngenta Acquires Cropio
Syngenta and The Cropio Group have announced that Syngenta has completed the acquisition of all relevant assets of The Cropio Group, an ag tech company with a presence in over 50 countries, but with a primary focus in Eastern Europe. The Cropio platform is an equipment-integrated, end-to-end software solution that provides imaging, recordkeeping, and equipment tracking. Approximately 10 million hectares of crops are currently managed using Cropio.
The Cropio Group sought a partner with strong agri-science expertise to complement and enhance their leading technology platform. With a proven track record of successful partnerships in the digital ag space, Syngenta was seen as an ideal partner to help deliver additional value to Cropio’s grower customers.
Greg Meyers, Chief Information and Digital Officer, Syngenta, said, “This acquisition marks a turning point in Syngenta’s digital strategy for agriculture. Cropio is a leading player in the Eastern European digital agriculture market, and Syngenta is gaining a hub for ag tech innovation in Europe that will help increase farmer sustainability, productivity, efficiency and profitability. We anticipate significant opportunities for collaboration across the other Syngenta digital assets.”
