sumitomo chemical co ltd (4005) Key Developments

Sumitomo Chemical Extends Partnership with Monsanto Company

Sumitomo Chemical has announced an agreement to extend its strategic partnership with Monsanto Company for weed management collaboration in the US. The agreement was originally agreed upon in October 2010. Monsanto develops diverse weed management recommendations for farmers to have effective, economical and sustainable weed control through the Roundup Ready PLUS Crop Management Solutions platform. The Roundup Ready PLUS platform includes Monsanto's Roundup brand agricultural herbicides and offers farmers choices among residual herbicides for sound weed management. Flumioxazin-based herbicide brands and other herbicides developed and marketed by Sumitomo Chemical, are effective in controlling glyphosate (active ingredient of Roundupherbicide) resistant and tough-to-control weeds. These herbicides have produced significant results in managing resistant weeds in the US since the herbicides of Valent USA. Corp. were included in the Roundup Ready PLUS System from 2010. Under the agreement, a wider lineup of Valent products will be available in the Roundup Ready PLUS platform. As a result, herbicides containing Flumioxazin recommended under Monsanto's crop management platform will be available to a broader range of farmers. Sumitomo Chemical, with this strengthened strategic partnership with Monsanto, contributes to help farmers solve various challenges in weed management and aims to further expand its crop protection chemical business in the US.
