Dow, DuPont Merger Set to Close in Q1 2017

The merger between Dow AgroSciences and DuPont is set to close in the first quarter of 2017, according to a report by Hoosier Ag Today on Thursday.

The report quoted DuPont Pioneer Vice President Steve Reno as saying the process of bringing the two U.S. ag giants together should be completed by early next year, “We are working with regulators worldwide and should see the deal close during the first quarter of 2017.”


Although new products and brands will not likely be in the marketplace for the 2017 growing season, according to the article, Reno said that once the company is restructured, new products and technology will flow quickly.
