FMC acquires herbicide fluthiacet-methyl from two Japanese firms

FMC Corporation has acquired the herbicide fluthiacet-methyl from Kumiai Chemical Industry Co., Ltd., and Ihara Chemical Industry Co., Ltd., both of Tokyo. FMC has been distributing fluthiacet-methyl in the United States under the brand name Cadet herbicide and will now develop the herbicide globally. Fluthiacet-methyl is a broad-spectrum herbicide currently registered for early postemergence use on corn, soybeans and cotton in the United States. It is effective on many tough-to-control broadleaf weeds that have developed resistance to glyphosate.

"FMC is very excited about the acquisition of fluthiacet-methyl and our ability to develop it further in other crops and in other product concepts around the world," said Milton Steele, vice president and general manager, FMC Agricultural Products Group.
