UPL announces a new supply agreement for “Spirotetramat”, an insecticide created and developed by Bayer for integrated pest control. The agreement reflects UPL’s OpenAg purpose and commitment to open industry collaboration.
Through this long-term global data access and supply agreement, UPL will use its expertise in insecticides and global research and development network to develop, register and distribute new differentiated solutions containing Spirotetramat, that address farmer needs specifically around resistance management and/or hard-to-control sucking pests.
Sucking pests, such as Mealy bugs and Whiteflies, cause significant damage to key crops such as grapes and cotton as well as other fruit and vegetables. Spirotetramat is a proprietary Group 23 insecticide that is used widely across the globe and provides farmers long-lasting effectiveness across a broad spectrum of sucking pests.
This new supply agreement builds on existing license agreements between UPL and Bayer covering a range of agricultural solution.
