FMC Corporation recently announced it has entered into an agreement with Belchim Crop Protection granting an exclusive license to develop, register, manufacture, and sell the patented fungicide valifenalate in mixtures in North America, Latin America, and some select countries outside of the Americas.

“We are pleased to add another fungicide to our expanding suite of patented products now available around the world,” said Mark Douglas, president, FMC Agricultural Solutions. “With targeted acquisitions like this one, FMC continues to diversify its crop protection portfolio in a manner that delivers more value to growers.”

Approved for use on high-value crops such as grapes, tomatoes, and other vegetables, valifenalate is a dipeptide-class fungicide effective against various types of mildew. It is currently marketed mainly under the brand name Valis. FMC expects to offer valifenalate mixtures for immediate sale in Latin America followed by other regions soon after.

Financial terms of the agreement were not disclosed.
