FMC Agricultural Solutions increases its commitment to address Canadian agriculture challenges

FMC Agricultural Solutions has acquired select DuPont Crop Protection assets, making it well-positioned to provide customers with innovative crop protection solutions across all major Canadian crops. 
FMC now offers a complementary crop protection portfolio, deeper pipeline, greater regional reach, and a full-discovery research and development engine. Post acquisition, FMC is now a tier-one agricultural technology supplier in Canada and the fifth-largest crop protection company globally.
"Combining the substantial resources and talent from DuPont with our own will enable FMC to provide new solutions that serve customers' needs better, deliver greater value, and accelerate the pace at which we bring products to market," says David Strilchuk, Country Manager, FMC Canada. "We are very excited about the range of new possibilities the acquisition will bring to Canadian growers and to the industry as a whole."
The assets acquired from DuPont include proven broadleaf cereal herbicides, formulated with proprietary Solumax® soluble granules technology, offering the convenience and benefits of a dry herbicide that works like a liquid. These new products are highly complementary to FMC's existing and unique pre-emergent product line-up, which includes Authority®, Command® and Focus®.
The acquisition of industry-leading insecticides like Coragen® adds another level of high performance solutions to FMC's existing broad-spectrum insecticide lineup.  Other assets include PrecisionPac® application innovation, an exclusive and proprietary custom herbicide blending system, as well as a research farm and manufacturing site in Canada.
Overall, the new FMC Agricultural Solutions is in a strong position to offer Canadian growers a broader range of competitive products today, and a deep and vibrant research pipeline that is expected to yield even more high-performing crop protection solutions in the future.
