DuPont licenses new fungicide

Agriculture.com Staff 01/17/2007 @ 1:28pm

DuPont on Wednesday announced the completion of supply agreements with Mitsui Chemicals, Inc. for the fungicide active ingredient Penthiopyrad.

DuPont and Mitsui had previously signed a joint development agreement for new fungicides using Penthiopyrad, which controls a broad spectrum of diseases, such as Botrytis in fruits and vegetables and Septoria in cereals.

Penthiopyrad is highly effective against a broad range of damaging plant diseases, some of which have developed resistance to fungicide chemistry classes.

First sales are scheduled for 2010. The license from Mitsui covers sales in the European Union, Australasia, and the Americas.
