Syngenta, DuPont collaborate for crop protection portfolio

BASEL, SWITZERLAND/WILMINGTON, US: Syngenta and DuPont announced technology licensing agreements that will broaden each company’s crop protection product portfolio and enable both to bring new products to market more efficiently. Syngenta has obtained a global license from DuPont to develop products containing DuPont’s fungicide oxathiapiprolin. The development of this new piperidinyl thiazole isoxazoline class of fungicides represents a significant improvement for growers in the control of diseases in potatoes, grapes, vegetables and other specialty crops.

Syngenta receives exclusive rights for foliar and soil uses on all crops in North America and for lawn and garden uses globally. Syngenta also secures rights on certain crops for seed treatment globally and for the development of foliar and soil uses on certain crops outside of North America. The agreement gives DuPont exclusive access to Syngenta’s Solatenol for mixture with DuPont’s picoxystrobin fungicide on soybean and other crops in Brazil.

“These agreements again demonstrate DuPont Crop Protection’s commitment to our customers by collaborating to deliver innovative products from our robust pipeline while always focusing on sustainability and maximizing shareholder value. This decision enables DuPont to provide solutions that will help our customers improve their productivity and profitability now and in the future,” said Rik Miller, President, Crop Protection, DuPont.
