Arysta/PHC partner on sugar cane in Brazil
Arysta LifeScience has entered into development and distribution agreement with the US-based, UK-listed bioproducts company, Plant Health Care (PHC - Raleigh, North Carolina), in Brazil. The deal covers the use of PHC's proprietary protein technology for foliar application to sugar cane. Arysta will evaluate the technology across a range of geographical locations in Brazil to generate detailed information on biomass and sucrose production. The first sales of a commercial product are expected in the 2017 season. Arysta and PHC agreed a development and licensing deal for PHC's proprietary Harpin αβ technology for several crops and markets in 2013.
