TKI Inc. Aquires Terbacil Herbicide Assets
Dec. 6, 2007
"As DuPont Crop Protection continues its strategy to bring greater focus to our business, divestures of select, niche products, such as terbacil, will enable us to dedicate more time and resources to the exciting new products in our pipeline," said Jim Collins, vice president and general manager, DuPont Crop Protection. "As a result, we will bring new innovations to market faster."
Terbacil is marketed globally through the Sinbar® trademark. In Japan, terbacil also is sold in a mixture with diuron through the Zobar® trademark. TKI will acquire the rights to the Sinbar® and Zobar® trade names, a license to the technology required to make terbacil, and the worldwide registrations and data packages for the products. Sinbar® and Zobar® herbicides are used primarily in niche mint, fruit, alfalfa and non-crop markets, predominantly in North America and Japan.
