Syngenta's response

As mentioned in our original response to the authors of the report [...] Syngenta complies with the applicable national and international legislation and codes of practice that govern the crop protection industry in India... [I]n November 2015 Syngenta facilitated a workshop with academia, CSOs and other stakeholders on this specific issue... An important activity emerging from the workshop was the creation of a working group tasked to look at how to improve training protocols and align training content in order to have higher impact... Syngenta has also launched a renewed safe use train-the-trainer program with our Indian sales capability team... The training has a specific focus on the FAO/WHO Code of Conduct and behaviour change among farmers with regard to safety... We are convinced that through a continued dialogue involving the relevant authorities in India as well as the FAO, we can jointly derive solutions that recognize the needs and reality of the farming community in India.
