FMC Talks About Expanded Agreement with Monsanto

Cindy Zimmerman

heroFMC Agricultural Solutions and Monsanto last week announced the expansion of an agreement of participation in the Roundup Ready PLUS® Crop Management Solutions platform. The exclusive agreement includes FMC’s Authority® brand sulfentrazone herbicides, and adds FMC’s Capture® LFR® insecticide as a soil-applied insecticide for corn and Hero® insecticide.

“We believe growers should make use of the best technologies available,” said FMC Soybean Segment Manager Flavio Centola. “Monsanto and FMC together can offer farmers those cutting edge technologies to help them fight against weed and pest resistance and reach higher yields.”

Corn Segment Manager Matt Hancock says he likes the way the program helps them position the proper agronomics. “If it’s Authority brand herbicide, or Capture LFR insecticide at plant, or Hero foliar insecticide … we feel like that’s just really good stewardship of our brands and of our products,” said Hancock.
