Novozymes announced the completion of the EMD/Merck Crop BioScience acquisition. A deal, announced last December, that demonstrates Novozymes' commitment to develop sustainable solutions for both industry and agriculture on a global scale.

"We're excited to bring these two innovative companies together to help farmers produce more and better food, feed, fuel, and fiber while minimizing the environmental footprint," said Thomas Videbæk, executive vice president of Novozymes.

The deal complements Novozymes' existing agricultural biologicals business. The people, products, and technical expertise being brought together holds the potential to accelerate the development of new products and better meet farmers' current and future needs for sustainable solutions.
