Syngenta gets extended US data protection for mesotrione

The US EPA has extended the exclusive use data protection period for Syngenta’s herbicide, mesotrione, by two years to June 4th 2013. The move comes as part of an incentive in the 1996 Food Quality Protection Act, which has provisions for the extension of data protection following the investment made by a company to obtain registrations for minor crops. The original ten-year exclusive use period can be extended by a maximum of three years - one year for every three minor-crop uses registered.
