Nufarm Americas and Sumitomo Chemical Company's affiliate Valent de Mexico (VdM) intends to form a strategic alliance in Mexico to distribute crop protection products. Nufarm will provide selected products from its line of herbicides, insecticides and fungicides to VdM, which will offer those products through its well-established existing distribution channel.

"Nufarm and SCC are working together in many regions of the world to explore alliances that can capitalize on each of our strengths and we are pleased to find this opportunity in Mexico," said Robert Renes, Nufarm vice president for Latin America North. "The combination of our broad product line and VdM's distribution channel relationships will benefit both companies and our customers."

Renes adds that VdM and Nufarm offerings are complementary; in Mexico, VdM has focused on specialty crops and branded products, while Nufarm is one of the world's largest suppliers of herbicides for broad-acre crops as well as a wide array of fungicides and insecticides.
