| August 14, 2014

PHILADELPHIA, Pa. – FMC Corporation and Arysta LifeScience North America announced the signing of an exclusive licensing agreement in which FMC will develop and market two key turf and ornamental products, DISARM Fungicide (fluoxastrobin) and XONERATE Herbicide (amicarbazone), in the U.S. and Canada, from Arysta LifeScience. The agreement was effective August 12.

"This exclusive agreement unites two complementary product lines, expanding FMC Professional Solutions turf and ornamental portfolio and further demonstrating our commitment to grow beyond agriculture to invest in the professional services markets," said Mark Douglas, president, FMC Agricultural Solutions. “Additionally, this relationship opens exciting new development opportunities for the FMC Professional Solutions turf and ornamental business.”

With this agreement, FMC continues its commitment to broaden its range of turf management solutions, including fungicides, insecticides and herbicides. 

FMC Professional Solutions entered the turf and ornamental industry back in 1987 with the launch of Talstar insecticide. Over the past decade, the company has broadened its turf portfolio significantly, adding seven new herbicide and five insecticide products, in addition to formulations specifically tailored for industry segments such as golf, nursery, greenhouse and tree care.
 
"FMC has always been known for its passion for customers, whether providing new products, new formulations, better delivery systems, or more environmentally responsible packaging," said Pramod Thota, director of FMC Professional Solutions. "Adding these key products dovetails seamlessly with our philosophy of giving our customers what they need to solve turf management problems both now and in the future."
