Sumitomo to Establish Latin America Research Center in Brazil

Sumitomo Chemical has announced that it will establish its Latin America Research Center in Brazil that will conduct efficacy trials, R&D, and analyses of crop protection products and other related products. The Latin America Research Center, which will be operated by Sumitomo Chemical Brazil, will be Sumitomo Chemical Group's first research and development base in Latin America. The Research Center is expected to accelerate development of products most befitting to the local conditions and requirements through conducting detailed and highly reliable trials and researches geared specifically to the Latin American market, Sumitomo Chemical's strategically important region for the crop protection products business. In particular, setting up the new R&D arm in the Southern Hemisphere makes it possible to carry out field trials more efficiently by selecting a region with the most suitable climatic conditions, given that the company's existing R&D facilities are all located in the Northern Hemisphere where seasons are opposite to those of the Southern Hemisphere.
