Strong growth in Latin America and Asia boosted Arysta LifeScience's agrochemical sales by 20.2% to ¥146,500 million ($1,432.8 million at the current rate) in 2013. Revenues benefited from the appreciation of the yen against most currencies, notably the dollar and the euro. At constant exchange rates (CER) and excluding the impact of discontinued operations, sales rose by more than 8% during the year. Agrochemicals accounted for 93% of total sales.
