Tessenderlo Kerley (TKI) and DuPont Crop Protection announced the sale of certain of DuPont’s global Hexazinone solo product and its Hexazinone/Diuron-only mixture product business assets to TKI.

The sale excludes assets in Brazil.  Financial terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

The assets to be divested by DuPont include the Velpar, Pronone and Advance trademarks, formulated product registrations, formulated product registration data, customer information, supply agreements with third parties, access to certain know-how, certain Hexazinone and Diuron technical registrations and associated registration data, for each product.

“This acquisition is another step for the NovaSource crop protection division of TKI to improve its position in the niche crop protection industry,” said David Cassidy, group vice president for TKI. “These products enable NovaSource to add new distribution opportunities both in North America and in Asia.”
