DuPont announced it has applied to regulatory authorities in the European Union (represented by the U.K.), Canada and the United States for registration of two new crop protection disease control products. These countries will conduct a joint review as part of an Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) Work Share project for regulatory harmonization. The two new fungicides, DuPont Fontelis and DuPont Vertisan will provide growers with preventative and curative disease control for a wide range of grain, fruit and vegetable crops.
"We look forward to providing these new tools to growers looking to maximize yield and quality with innovative answers to disease control issues," said James Collins, president, DuPont Crop Protection. "These new products are another example of how DuPont Crop Protection is using market-driven science to help growers meet the global demand for increased food production."
