The Andersons has initiated a patent infringement suit against Enviro Granulation of South Carolina; Plant Science of Ontario Canada and The Harrell’s of Lakeland Fla. The infringement suit, filed in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Florida, involves three patents related to dispersible granular fertilizer technology.

The Andersons’ investment in intellectual property is limited, however research and development is crucial to the success of its professional turf business and the company will defend its technology in this suit and others if necessary, according to a company statement.

The Andersons introduced its dispersible granular technology in 2004 under the brand name Contec DG. Information on these products can be found at www.AndersonsPro.com.
