Arysta, DuPont Sign Fungicidal Seed Treatment Deal

Arysta LifeScience, owned by Platform Specialty Products Co., announced that it has initiated a long-term global strategic collaboration with DuPont.

Arysta LifeScience will supply to DuPont Crop Protection an innovative fungicide technology with an initial focus on corn and soybean seed applied products. Concurrently, DuPont will acquire rights to register, develop and commercialize seed applied products through its seed brands, to third-party seed companies, and ag retailers globally, that include Arysta LifeScience technology. Both companies intend to extend the collaboration to the development of additional products for other crops.

DuPont intends to develop, register, brand, and market proprietary product combinations with this fungicide technology. These new products are expected to include a systemic fungicide that would control both soil- and seed-borne diseases-including Fusarium, Rhizoctonia, smuts, bunts and seed rots.

“Arysta LifeScience’s fungicide technology for seed treatment is the result of a long-term R&D effort in formulation, biology and application development,” said Paula Pinto, vice president, Global Portfolio Management, Arysta LifeScience. “We are excited to partner with DuPont in the development of new seed treatment solutions.”

“This long-term partnership supports our strategy of collaborations that incorporate best-in-class technologies into our portfolio for grower benefits,” said Mick Messman, director – Global Seed Applied Technologies, DuPont. “We believe fungicidal seed treatments have become an essential tool for managing disease in crops such as corn and soybeans, and we expect this deal to allow us to create and offer growers even more effective seed treatment solutions.”
