Dow to acquire Pfister Hybrids assets

Dow AgroSciences has agreed to acquire the majority of assets of the US maize seed company, Pfister Hybrids (El Paso, Illinois). The move is part of the continued expansion of the company’s US seed business ahead of the planned launch of genetically modified insect-resistant and herbicide-tolerant SmartStax maize in 2010 and Dow Herbicide Tolerance (DHT) technology in maize in 2012 ( Agrow No 562, pp 5-6). The purchase of Pfister Hybrids would be Dow’s tenth seed company acquisition since May 2007 and the first this year.
