Chemtura/Arysta extend African partnership
Chemtura AgroSolutions has granted distribution rights to Arysta LifeScience for all of its crop protection products in West Africa. The move marks an extension of a partnership formed last year when Arysta agreed to distribute Chemtura’s insecticide, Dimilin (diflubenzuron), in the region for the control of malaria-spreading mosquitoes (Agrow No 642, p 3). Arysta has an extensive presence in the region, with subsidiaries in Mali, Burkina Faso, Ghana, Ivory Coast, Niger and Cameroon, the companies point out. Chemtura’s products will benefit from Arysta’s distribution network and regional formulation sites, which allow the provision of smaller pack sizes to suit customer needs, they add.
