DuPont Crop Protection (DCP) recently signed a supply agreement with Prochem Agritech Inc., the largest herbicide producer and marketer in the Philippines. Under the agreement, Prochem will distribute Indoxacarb, a DuPont insect control product, under its Cropshield brand.

The partnership was strategically designed to increase the DuPont presence in the region’s corn market. The market segment of Indoxacarb in corn has potential to significantly increase business growth.

“We think this is the start of strategically aggressive growth for DCP in the Phillipines,” said Gerry Garcia, business manager, DCP, Philippines.
