Dow AgroSciences has announced it will be launching six new molecules including various breakthrough solutions across the EMEA region according to a statement from the company.
The wholly owned subsidiary of The Dow Chemical Company (NYSE: DOW), has cited the needs of the farmer as the focus behind the drive which will support optimising business across the Middle East, African and European regions.
Under the new structure, Dow AgroSciences has divided the EMEA in two regions; Europe and Middle East/Africa, helping to fine tune the demands for each region as two separate commercial entities and therefore cater more accurately for the demands of each market.
Looking to strengthen its position in herbicides for crops, such as cereals, rice, and pasture as well as expand to cereal fungicides, the company is also allocating resources to support collaborations with partners to support solutions made possible by the new pipeline.
Speaking on behalf of the company, vice president for EMEA and Pacific, Pierre Flye Sainte Marie, said, “New technology means new solutions for our customers, and the team we now have in place can help farmers make the most of our expanding product portfolio.”
“We are dedicated to providing focus, support and local emphasis for our customers in the EMEA geography as our innovative products help them advance agriculture.”
Based in Indianapolis, Dow AgroSciences showed strong performance in 2014 after announcing global sales of $7.3 billion during the fiscal year.
