Rynaxypyr® active (chlorantraniliprole) insect control
Rynaxypyr® active insect control delivers broad-spectrum control of insect pests such as armyworms, loopers, silverleaf whitefly nymphs, leafminer larvae and more. This industry leading active ingredient was first registered in the Philippines in 2007 and is now available in more than 120 countries.
Fluindapyr active (fungicide)
Fluindapyr controls a variety of key diseases in row and specialty crops around the world, as well as turf. Fluindapyr formulations are registered in the U.S. and Argentina. We anticipate launching additional formulations for crop use in Brazil, China and countries in Europe. Key crops include soybeans, corn, cotton, cereals, oilseed rape, fruits & vegetables, tree nuts and peanuts.
- Onsuva™ fungicide is available in Argentina to prevent and control diseases affecting soybean and peanut crops.
- Adastrio™ fungicide is registered in the U.S. for use in corn, grain sorghum, wheat, triticale and barley against anthracnose leaf blight, common rust, gray leaf spot, Northern corn leaf blight and Southern rust.
- Kalida™ fungicide is registered in the U.S. for use on warm-season and cool-season turfgrasses to protect against bipolaris leaf spot, take-all root rot, fairy ring, mini ring, and large patch.
Tetflupyrolimet is the first active ingredient in the HRAC/ WSSA Group 28 and the first new herbicide with a novel mode of action in the industry in over three decades. We anticipate launching products containing Tetflupyrolimet in the transplanted and direct-seeded rice markets. Studies show this new mode of action herbicide provides season-long control of important grass weeds in the rice market, as well as key broadleaf weeds and sedges.
We are also testing Tetflupyrolimet in other crops, including sugarcane, wheat, soybean and corn.
Innovation at FMC extends beyond the discovery and development of new active ingredients and formulations. We also focus on novel application techniques and highly engineered formulations that address specific grower challenges.
