Bayer completes non-crop herbicide purchase from DuPont

Bayer CropScience has completed the purchase of certain DuPont land management herbicide assets in North America, Mexico, Australia and New Zealand. The deal was agreed in October and completed on December 1st following the receipt of the required antitrust approvals. As part of the deal, 16 employees from DuPont will join Bayer's industrial vegetation management team in the US. Pro-forma sales of Bayer and DuPont's vegetation management businesses in 2013 amounted to €80 million ($100 million at the current rate), with DuPont's business in North America, Mexico, Australia and New Zealand making up some €50 million ($63 million). "Through this acquisition, we become a leader in industrial vegetation management in North America and globally and will continue to build a best-in-class, innovative platform for future product launches and risk management solutions," says Bayer CropScience chief executive officer Liam Condon.
