Nufarm has entered into an agreement with Sumitomo Chemical subsidiary Valent USA Corporation (Walnut Creek, California) granting Nufarm marketing and distribution rights to Valent's branded products for the US turf, ornamental and aquatics markets. The arrangement takes effect on February 16th. It will reinforce Nufarm's position as one of the leading suppliers in the US turf and ornamental industry, the company points out.
