Global agriculture firm Arysta LifeScience entered into a collaboration with DowDuPont’s DuPont Crop Protection unit to develop and sell seed applied products for a variety of crops, a Nov. 7 press release issued by the two companies announced.

“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 of global seed applied technologies at DuPont in a statement. “We believe fungicidal 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 options.”

Under the terms of the deal, Arysta will supply DuPont with a fungicide technology that will initially center on corn and soybean seed applied products. In turn, DowDuPont will take ownership of the rights to register, develop and commercialize seed applied products through its seed brands, to third parties, and ag retailers across the globe.

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