Risk Factors. Risks that are considered to be material are described below. The resources Syngenta devotes to research and development may not result in commercially viable products.
Research and development in the agribusiness industry is expensive and prolonged, and entails considerable uncertainty. The process of developing a novel crop protection product, plant variety or trait typically takes around ten years or more from discovery through testing and registration to initial product launch; this period varies considerably from product to product and country to country. Because of the stringent product performance and safety criteria applied in product development, compounds or biotechnological products currently under development may neither survive the development process nor ultimately receive the requisite regulatory approvals needed to market such products.
Even when such approvals are obtained, there can be no assurance that a new product will be commercially successful.
