GREENSBORO, N.C. – Syngenta has announced the global launch of spiropidion, an innovative new insecticide active ingredient. The technology will help farmers protect a broad range of crops against damaging and difficult-to-control sucking pests in a targeted, effective and environmentally sustainable manner.
In North America, Syngenta has entered into an agreement with Gowan Company, a family-owned agricultural solutions business headquartered in Yuma, Arizona. Gowan has been granted an exclusive license to market and sell a patented spiropidion 300 SC formulation in the U.S. and Canada.
Syngenta plans regulatory submissions for late 2022 in the U.S. and Canada and anticipates product launch by mid-decade. The first global registration of a formulated product containing spiropidion was obtained in Guatemala in September 2020. Over the next six years, product launches are expected in more than 60 countries.
