Arysta/Isagro ink fungicide deal
Arysta LifeScience is to develop, supply and distribute fungicide mixtures based on one of its active ingredients and Italian agrochemical company Isagro's (Milan) tetraconazole globally. The companies have agreed a 15-year licensing deal that includes Arysta's fluoxastrobin fungicide mixed with Isagro's proprietary active ingredient. The arrangement includes exclusive access for Arysta to tetraconazole in Canada and the US for the development of mixtures for use as foliar applications on canola, pulses and certain small grains, and the extension of its existing exclusive access to the ai in Japan. The deal sees Isagro give regulatory and registration access to Arysta, while the latter will buy tetraconazole only from Isagro.
