United Phosphorus purchases Dow AgroSciences' propanil

United Phosphorus Limited (UPL) has reached an agreement with Dow AgroSciences LLC to acquire its global propanil herbicide business, marketed primarily as Stam herbicide.

Stam is a selective, post-emergence foliar applied, non-residual herbicide for the control of many important annual grasses, broadleaf and sedge weeds used in rice. Stam is a global product with more than 100 registrations in over 30 countries in North America, Latin America, Europe, Africa, and Asia/Pacific.

This purchase will strengthen UPL's position in the rice herbicide segment. Under the agreement, UPL and its subsidiaries throughout the world can start selling propanil and its formulations immediately.
