Monsanto, FMC expand crop protection agreement

ST LOUIS, US: Monsanto Company announced an agreement to extend the relationship with FMC Agricultural Solutions which will benefit corn, cotton and soybean growers through Roundup Ready PLUS Crop Management Solutions. This agreement broadens the Roundup Ready PLUS Crop Management Solutions relationship to include Hero insecticide.

Monsanto’s Roundup Ready PLUS platform empowers farmers to maximize the performance of their Roundup Ready crops through local research-supported crop management recommendations. Monsanto’s relationship with FMC began in the fall of 2010 with the inception of Roundup Ready PLUS Weed Management Solutions. For the 2015 growing season, Roundup Ready PLUS Weed Management Solutions has evolved beyond weed management to become Roundup Ready PLUS Crop Management Solutions. Today, Monsanto and its partners continue to develop effective, economical and sustainable approaches to controlling tough-to-control and glyphosate-resistant weeds, as well as insects and diseases.

FMC herbicides that will continue to be endorsed under the agreement include the Authority brand of soybean pre-emergence residual herbicides: Authority Assist, Authority First, Authority Maxx, Authority MTZ and Authority XL.

“The relationship with FMC Agricultural Solutions helps us ensure that growers have an additional tool for crop management that allows their crops to thrive. By enhancing the Roundup Ready PLUS platform with Hero insecticide, we are ensuring corn, soybean and cotton growers have access to an excellent product for managing insects and protecting crop yield,” said Chris Reat, Roundup Ready PLUS marketing manager, Monsanto.

“We look forward to extending  the Roundup Ready PLUS portfolio to include  insecticides for corn, soybean and cotton growers, and continuing this strong relationship with FMC so that we can continue to provide the highest industry standard solutions for growers’ bottom-line benefits,” added Reat.
