Monsanto/FMC add to agchem promotion deal
Monsanto and FMC have extended their US agrochemical promotion deal to include FMC's soil-applied maize insecticide, Capture LFR (bifenthrin). The Roundup Ready Plus Crop Management Solutions platform was renamed and extended for the 2015 season. It was launched in 2010 to encourage the use of alternative products to control glyphosate-resistant weeds. It now covers pest and disease control. A range of FMC's sulfentrazone-based Authority brand herbicides are included in the scheme and FMC's insecticide, Hero (zeta-cypermethrin), was added this year.
