Bayer expands US pesticide plant

Bayer CropScience has completed a two-year $15 million expansion of its US agrochemical manufacturing facility at Muskegon, Michigan. The main product manufactured at the site is the herbicide, Ignite (glufosinate-ammonium), which has seen steady growth for use on genetically modified LibertyLink maize, cotton and canola, Bayer points out. Demand has also been boosted by the recent introduction of LibertyLink soybeans in the US. The 400 acre (162 ha) Muskegon facility is worth $135 million. The expansion will add ten employees, bringing staff numbers to 60.
