Engage to sell Nichino agchems in Canada
Nihon Nohyaku’s US subsidiary, Nichino America, has reached a deal with Canadian agrochemical company Engage Agro (Guelph, Ontario) to register and market Nichino products in Canada. “This is the first opportunity for Nichino America to expand its business outside the US, and this is an exciting alliance for us,” says Nichino president Jeffrey Johnson. The deal will see the introduction of Nichino’s fungicide, flutonanil, and its insecticides/acaricides, buprofezin, fenpyroximate and tolfenpyrad, in Canada. Launches are expected to start in 2014.
