Arysta opens SC formulation plant in Vietnam
Arysta LifeScience has opened a new suspension concentrate (SC) formulation plant in Song Than II Industrial Zone of Binh Duong province in Vietnam. The facility will produce the fungicide/bactericide, Kasai-S 92SC (kasugamycin + tricyclazole), which is to be launched later this year for the control of rice blast ( Pyricularia grisea). It will be the first “blasticide” in SC formulation available to growers in Vietnam, Arysta says. The facility is the first SC formulation plant in South-East Asia and was established with technical assistance from Japanese company Hokko Chemical Industry.
