American Vanguard Corp., also known as Amvac, has acquired the quizalofop line of herbicides from Corteva Agriscience. The primary uses are in soybeans, canola and pulse in the United States and Canada, according to a news release.
The transaction includes technical registrations, commercial sales information and the transfer of existing product supply arrangements. Financial terms were not being disclosed.
Among the brands involved is Assure II, which contains the active ingredient quizalofop p-ethyl. It is an ACCase inhibitor herbicide that belongs to the Weed Science Society of America’s Group 1.
Our acquisition of the QPE product line from Corteva Agriscience provides our crop protection business with a portfolio of valuable herbicide brands that hold significant leadership positions in the North American market,” Amvac Chairman and CEO Eric Wintemute said in the release. “ These products are complementary to existing glyphosate, glufosinate and 2,4-D use, and are highly regarded for weed and grass control by providing a broad window of application and excellent crop safety.”
