  • Description
  • Regional Coverage: North America


    In 2017, low grain commodity prices continue to put pressure on grower management on treatments and cost of pesticides. Pesticide markets remained relatively flat, with some growth in herbicides. Planted acres of corn, cotton, pulse, and rice crops were up 6.8%, 17.4%, 17.0%, and 20%, respectively, while cereals, sorghum, and sunflowers were down 13.3%, 20.9%, and 14.1%, respectively. M&A continued moving forward with some product lines being spun off by majors to meet regulatory hurdles, including FMC acquiring some of DuPont’s crop protection business in 2017.
