Corteva Agriscience Acquires Clearfield Canola In Canada And U.S.

Corteva Agriscience, Agriculture Division of DowDuPont, announced that it has acquired the Clearfield Canola Production System in Canada and the United States from BASF.

Clearfield canola is a globally-recognized non-genetically modified herbicide tolerance system consisting of an herbicide tolerance trait and Imidazolinone herbicides sold today in Canada primarily under the brand, Ares.

The acquisition enables Corteva, which previously licensed the Clearfield canola trait in both the Pioneer and Brevant seeds brands, to expand its position to include out-licensing of the Clearfield canola trait to other seed companies in Canada and the United States.

The financial terms of the agreement were not disclosed.
