Dow agchem sales up 3% in Q2
Dow AgroSciences' crop protection sales rose by 3% to an undisclosed record figure in the second quarter of 2014. Growth was led by insecticides, which recorded double-digit gains in all regions, the company points out. Sales increases of herbicides in North America and Latin America were slightly offset by declines in Asia and the Europe, Middle East and Africa region. The latter was impacted by the early start of the cereal herbicide season in Europe.
