13 December 2021, Philadelphia: FMC Corporation, a leading global agricultural sciences company, announced it has signed multi-year agreements with Corteva Agriscience to continue to supply Rynaxypyr® and Cyazypyr®actives to Corteva for seed treatment products. These multi-year agreements extend the existing global collaboration between the two companies.
Seed-applied insecticides powered by Rynaxypyr® and Cyazypyr® actives help growers protect their seed investment against key insect pests, resulting in improved yield and higher quality crops. Corteva is a leader in developing and supplying commercial seed combining advanced germplasm and novel traits.

Corteva’s expertise in seed treatment, as well as its commitment to stewardship and innovation, will support the continued expansion of our Rynaxypyr® and Cyazypyr® actives globally.”
FMC has continued to grow the diamides significantly since acquiring them in late 2017. The company collaborates with dozens of crop protection companies to provide growers around the world with its leading insecticide technology. Products containing Rynaxypyr® and Cyazypyr® actives are registered in over 120 countries for use on hundreds of crops.
