Arysta benefits from strong Latin America in 2007
A strong agricultural economy in Latin America and favourable weather conditions in Europe helped Arysta LifeScience achieve agrochemical sales growth of 9.9% in 2007. The company recorded pesticide sales of Yen 121,962 million ($1,193 million). Arysta highlights an "outstanding" performance of established products, together with growth of newer products such as the herbicide, Dinamic (amicarbazone), and the fungicide, Evito/Disarm (fluoxastrobin). Further contributions came from the integration of the US off-patent pesticide business, Micro Flo, which was acquired in March 2006 (Agrow No 479, p 1).
