American Vanguard Corp.’s principal operating subsidiary, Amvac Chemical Corp., has entered into agreements with Syngenta Crop Protection LLC to acquire rights to Envoke herbicide. The acquisition includes end-use product registrations and trademarks for the herbicide in the United States.
Envoke contains the active ingredient, trifloxysulfuron-sodium, a Weed Science Society of America Group 2. The herbicide is registered to control several broadleaf weeds, sedges and grasses in cotton, sugarcane and transplanted tomatoes.
“The addition of Envoke to the Amvac portfolio allows Amvac to strengthen our portfolio in core crops and provide growers with unique herbicide solutions for management of difficult to control weeds,” Scott Hendrix, Amvac senior vice president for U.S. and Canada crop sales and application technology, said in a news release. “This acquisition demonstrates our commitment to these key markets and complements our existing technologies to better serve our customers.”
