Bayer/Engage Agro USA herbicide deal
Bayer CropScience has appointed Canadian agrochemical company Engage Agro’s US subsidiary, Engage Agro USA (Prescott, Arizona), as the exclusive US distributor of its herbicide, Spin-Aid (phenmedipham). The post-emergence product is for the control of broadleaf weeds in spinach and red beet. “We are very pleased to be able to keep this product available to the industry,” says Engage Agro USA’s western business manager, Steve Slaveck. The company will begin distributing Spin-Aid in key US markets in February 2012.
