Syngenta ups azoxystrobin production in US

Syngenta is boosting production of the fungicide, azoxystrobin, in the US. It is to operate a new system at its manufacturing site in Omaha using continuous formulation instead of the current batch process. “We’ll be able to produce Quilt [azoxystrobin] at 10 times the old manufacturing rate,” plant manager Randy Schomers says. Expansion at the facility started in March this year, and the company plans for it to be functioning by early next year, it says. Azoxystrobin has patent protection in the US until 2014.
