Amvac gains biopesticide rights

US agrochemical company American Vanguard (Los Angeles, California) has acquired exclusive rights to two biopesticides patented by US firm Summerdale Inc (Verona, Wisconsin). The licensing agreement grants Amvac worldwide rights to develop the products for pre- or post-harvest use as fungicides, desiccants, sanitisers or harvest aids. One of the candidates, AMV4024, has been in development for more than three years and shows good potential as a broad-spectrum biofungicide, Amvac points out. Another candidate, AMV5680, is being tested as a crop desiccant aid. Other compounds from Summerdale may be evaluated for further development as sanitisers or other post-harvest uses.
