DuPont, Bayer expand corn market offerings

DuPont and Bayer CropScience today announced an agreement that enables the companies to better meet the needs of U.S. corn growers.

DuPont Crop Protection will acquire access to the Bayer CropScience products isoxadifen and isoxaflutole for use with DuPont's corn sulfonylurea products. The isoxadifen will provide greater flexibility and utility to DuPont products in corn, including Steadfast, Accent, Stout and Resolve brands. Isoxaflutole, premixed with Resolve-brand herbicides, will allow DuPont to create new pre-emergence offers for glyphosate-tolerant hybrids.

Bayer CropScience, in turn, will gain access to participation in the Pioneer Hi-Bred International, Inc. TruChoice program and to co-promote its Liberty/Liberty Link program with Pioneer.

Documents implementing this agreement are expected to be finalized in the near future.

"Our agreement allows Bayer CropScience and DuPont Crop Protection to more effectively meet the needs of American corn growers, from planting to harvest," says Geoff Kneen, vice president, marketing and portfolio management, for Bayer CropScience LP. "An important aspect of this is our collaboration with Pioneer Hi-Bred, which will provide growers greater access to an alternative non-selective herbicide technology in Liberty."
