Novozymes, FMC sign biocontrol deal

February 1, 2021 |

In Denmark, enzymes leader Novozymes and leading pesticides firm FMC have announced a partnership in the biocontrol segment. Under the terms of the deal, the two companies have agreed to codevelop and commercialize biological enzyme-based crop protection solutions focusing on FMC’s diamide insecticide technology, as well as a biocontrol solution for Asian Soybean Rust (ASR), a major soy fungal disease which is particularly problematic in South America.  

Together, the companies will combine their respective R&D capabilities with FMC serving as commercial partner and Novozymes as the manufacturing partner. The partnership will leverage Novozymes’ enzyme biocontrol technology development to date, and the companies will work closely together to unlock the potential and seek the necessary approvals to commercialize the technology in the relevant global markets.
