The Canadian arms of Syngenta Crop Protection and Arysta LifeScience have signed licensing deals to make new herbicides using one of each other’s chemistries.
Syngenta will use flucarbazone chemistry, the active ingredient in Arysta’s Group 2 herbicide Everest, to produce Sierra and Pace herbicides.
Sierra will be a Group 2 graminicide based on flucarbazone, which Syngenta said provides “an effective Group 2 chemistry option for use as part of the Syngenta Total Approach to grass weed management.”
Pace, meanwhile, will be a co-pack based on flucarbazone and Touchdown-brand glyphosate, to be used for pre-seed burndown in wheat, Syngenta said in a separate release.
Syngenta, meanwhile, will license clodinafop 60EC, the formulation in its Horizon NG herbicide, to be marketed by Arysta under the brand name NextStep NG.
Arysta on its website bills NextStep as “broad-spectrum grassy weed control at an economical price.”
