PHILADELPHIA, US: FMC Corporation announced that it has signed an exclusive distribution and development agreement with Consumo em Verde (CEV), Biotecnologia das Plantas of Portugal for the unique patented fungicidal active ingredient, which has a new mode of action. FMC Agricultural Products Group will develop and market the fungicide in the US and Canada as Problad Plus for all crop and non-crop uses. Registration for Problad Plus has been submitted to the US Environmental Protection Agency with an anticipated approval as a biopesticide in early 2013.

“Obtaining access to additional products has been a key strategic initiative for FMC’s North America crop business and Problad Plus will allow us to offer a broad-spectrum fungicide with a new unique mode of action that growers can use in their disease control programme. This will be a key integrated pest management addition to our rapidly expanding tree, fruit and vegetable crop segment portfolio and its plant-based production process,” said Bob Trogele, Director for North America, FMC Agricultural Products.
