Wednesday DuPont and Bayer CropScience announced an agreement that enables the companies to better meet the needs of U.S. corn growers.
DuPont Crop Protection will acquire access to the Bayer CropScience products isoxadifen and isoxaflutole for use with DuPont's corn sulfonylurea products. The isoxadifen will provide greater flexibility and utility to DuPont products in corn, including Steadfast®, Accent®, Stout® and Resolve® brands. Isoxaflutole, premixed with Resolve® brand herbicides, will allow DuPont to create new pre-emergence offers for glyphosate tolerant hybrids.
Bayer CropScience, in turn, will gain access to participation in the Pioneer TruChoice® program and to co-promote its LIBERTY®/Liberty Link® program with Pioneer.
Documents implementing this agreement are expected to be finalized in the near future.
