FMC forges partnership with Novonesis

FMC Corporation, a global agricultural sciences company, has announced a partnership in Canada with the biotech firm Novonesis. FMC said that it will become the exclusive distributor of Novonesis’ biosolution products – including brands like TagTeam, Optimize, JumpStart, BioniQ, Cell-Tech, and Nitragin – for the 2025 growing season.

The companies will also use their respective R&D capabilities to develop novel biological technologies for Canadian farmers. The partnership will benefit from Novonesis’ Plant Biosolutions Manufacturing and Research site in Saskatoon, Canada, and FMC’s market knowledge and scientific expertise. FMC said the deal is part of FMC’s strategic plan to grow its biologicals platform in key markets.

“FMC is excited to collaborate with Novonesis to bring Canadian growers effective biological products that complement our biological and synthetic chemistry,” FMC Plant Health’s Dr. Bénédicte Flambard said. “As we continue to invest in and expand our biologicals portfolio, we are committed to aligning with partners who enhance our ability to provide growers around the world with science-backed biological solutions that help sustainably manage crops, protect yields and combat resistance,” he added.

FMC noted that it has launched around 40 products – including biostimulants, biofungicides, and seed treatments – in 24 countries over the past five years and described itself as a top-tier global provider of integrated solutions to help growers sustainably feed the world.
