American Vanguard buys herbicide product line from Corteva Agriscience


American Vanguard Corporation has acquired the quizalofop product line of herbicides from Corteva Agriscience, the agriculture division of DowDuPont.

The transaction means American Vanguard acquires the technical registrations, commercial sales information, and the existing product supply of the herbicide line up, according to a press release.

The quizalofop line is currently registered for use in Canada on canola, soybean, and some pulse crops, among others. Looking forward, the line is also approved for use with the Enlist herbicide tolerance trait.

“These products are complementary to existing glyphosate, glufosinate and 2,4D use, and are highly regarded for weed and grass control by providing a broad window of application and excellent crop safety,” says chairman and CEO of American Vanguard, Eric Wintemute, in a news release

Financial details of the acquisition will not be disclosed.
