Mike Mack, CEO of Syngenta, the world's largest agrochmicals company, told CNBC, "We had a good first half despite these weather conditions, the big story of course being what is happening right now in the Mid-West. The onset of the drought didn't affect our sales in the first half because it really deepened in the course of June, but my goodness look what it did to commodity prices."
