It’s true! Yesterday we announced that FMC Professional Solutions has signed an exclusive licensing agreement to develop and market two key turf and ornamental product lines, DISARM® Fungicides (fluoxastrobin) and XONERATE® Herbicide (amicarbazone) in the U.S. and Canada. This agreement means FMC Professional Solutions now offers insecticides, herbicides and fungicides — providing a full portfolio of turf solutions.
We spoke with members of the FMC turf team for their reactions:
“This agreement brings some exciting technology to FMC. These active ingredients are great solutions for turf managers, and this relationship opens new development opportunities.”
– Bobby Walls, PhD., Product Development Manager
“The agreement between FMC and Arysta allows us to go to customers with a full portfolio of insecticide, herbicide and fungicide products. It demonstrates FMC’s commitment to growing our turf and ornamental business long-term.”
– Maureen Thompson, FMC, Business Manager, T&O segment
“This is a big opportunity for FMC. Not only do we have amazing herbicides and insecticides, we now have the best strobilurin fungicide on the market. More specifically, I’m excited to provide my customers with a great solution for dollar spot on bermuda grass, which is a unique problem that DISARM can address.”
– Mike Kellum, FMC Market Specialist, Southeast region
“Having a broad spectrum fungicide to offer our customers is huge. My territory is otherwise known as the ‘disease belt’ so the DISARM line of products is truly fulfilling a need for disease control—particularly in the upper Midwestern states, where snow mold is a severe problem.”
– Jay Young, FMC Market Specialist, Mid-West region
This agreement will not affect your ability to buy or use these products, which will be available from many, if not more, of the same distributors.
