In July and August 2014, during periods of peak seed production activity, the FLA conducted unannounced independent external monitoring (IEM) visits to assess working conditions at Syngenta‘s seed supplier farms in Europe and the Middle East. Two assessments took place in Hungary (at farms in the provinces of Jász, Nagykun, Szolnok, and Csongrád), two in Romania (in Iasi and Galati provinces) and three in Turkey (in Bergama and Konya) where Syngenta is sourcing corn and sunflower seeds.

Below, the executive summary collects the top findings from the 2014 assessments in all three countries, the companies’ responses to the 2014 findings, and company actions taken in 2014 in response to the 2013 round of assessments.  The more detailed assessment reports for each region appear below the executive summary.
