Dow AgroSciences recorded a 1% decline in crop protection sales in the third quarter of 2014. The company points to a softening of market conditions in North America compared with the same period last year. However, seed and trait sales grew by 5% to a record third-quarter level. Growth was led by demand for soybean and sunflower seed in North America and Latin America.
