Syngenta, Gowan collaborate to deliver new insecticide to the North American market

Syngenta recently 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 Co., a family-owned agricultural solutions business headquartered in Yuma, AZ. Gowan has been granted an exclusive license to market and sell a patented spiropidion 300 SC formulation in the U.S. and Canada.

“Spiropidion is the result of our commitment to bring two new and sustainable active ingredients to the market every year,” said Jeff Cecil, head of marketing, Syngenta Crop Protection, North America. “Its development also reflects our deep understanding and anticipation of grower needs. We are pleased to be collaborating with Gowan to deliver this solution to the market.”

“Headquartered in the heart of America’s winter vegetable capital, we intimately understand the impact of crop protection products,” said Eric McEwen, head of marketing for Gowan in North America. “Our company is a recognized leader in integrated agricultural solutions, and we are proud to partner with Syngenta to help farmers increase production and profit through this active ingredient.”

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.
