Bayer, MANA Settle Patent Disputes
In 2006, Bayer filed a lawsuit in US District Court alleging infringement by MANA of six Ginstar-related patents. Bayer will not pursure litigation.
Bayer developed Ginstar cotton defoliant to provide superior defoliation and re-growth inhibition that leads to higher value cotton at harvest. It is designed to deliver a clean, consistent drop of foliage under cool, dry and other challenging conditions.
