Bayer CropScience Mulls Acquisitions

Bayer CropScience AG may look at acquiring new business, despite its tight corporate structure, Chief Executive Officer, Liam Condon told German Boersen-Zeitung.

Bayer Opens Weed Resistance Competence Center in Frankfurt

Bayer CropScience Ltd. has opened the Weed Resistance Competence Center, or WRCC, in Frankfurt, Germany. The WRCC is a major step forward in tackling weed resistance, as it will develop new weed control strategies, and share knowledge within the global community of farmers, agronomists and scientists. As a scientific institution, the WRCC will act as Bayer CropScience's global reference center for weed resistance management. The core activities of its 12 full-time personnel cover three areas: understanding weed resistance mechanisms and their evolution in the field; developing and testing new weed control strategies; and sharing Bayer CropScience's knowledge and weed control solutions with the entire value chain.

Bayer CropScience Launches Stratego® PRO Fungicide

Bayer CropScience is offering a new tool in the fight against disease with the launch of Stratego® PRO fungicide, a broad spectrum fungicide with two modes of action (Group 3 and Group 11) to prevent and treat a wide range of diseases in winter wheat and soybeans. Available for the 2015 growing season, Stratego PRO is the next generation of Bayer CropScience’s Stratego ® fungicide, which is widely used and trusted by growers. With the addition of prothioconazole Stratego PRO provides both preventive and post infection disease control. Like trusted Stratego, it has two distinct modes of action. The fungicide attacks fungal metabolism and prevents spore germination to provide a long-lasting barrier against diseases. On winter wheat, the fungicide provides control against septoria leaf blotch and powdery mildew. In soybeans, Stratego PRO controls Asian soybean rust, frogeye leaf spot and brown spot and suppresses white mould, charcoal rot and stem blight. Research trials for Stratego PRO showed that by effectively controlling labeled diseases, the fungicide delivers incremental yield and profitability. Field studies proved up to 5% yield increase in wheat (vs. Stratego) and an 8% increase in soybeans (vs. untreated). Stratego PRO is registered for ground and aerial application and should be applied as a preventive disease control measure, or at the very early stages of disease development. Stratego will continue to be available for spring wheat and other cereals.
