PHILADELPHIA, US: FMC Corporation’s, Agricultural Products Group has entered into two exclusive agreements covering global development and supply of Chr Hansen biological products for agricultural and ornamental markets. FMC will begin commercialization this year of Chr Hansen’s Nemix bacillus product in Brazil and start development for new biological standalone and combination products in the Americas and key agricultural markets.

FMC will access Chr Hansen’s large library of existing bacillus products to evaluate and develop other biological products for use in agriculture as nematicides and plant health promoters. Chr Hansen will supply biological materials for products that FMC commercializes under the agreements.

“The Chr Hansen biological products are complementary to FMC’s portfolio of crop protection products and offer additional solutions to growers in FMC’s focus markets. This collaboration opens new opportunities and is aligned with our growth strategy by expanding in adjacent spaces to chemical crop protection markets,” said Milton Steele, President, Agricultural Products Group, FMC.
