Farmers need innovative products to successfully produce food for the growing world, and Dow AgroSciences LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of The Dow Chemical Company (NYSE: DOW), earned honors as an industry leader for its ability to deliver new technologies with a customer focus. The company received two Agrow Awards, a premier international competition recognizing excellence within the agricultural field.

The awards won by Dow AgroSciences include:

Best Formulations: Arylex™ Active Herbicide

Farmers need choices in how they apply products, and Arylex™ active herbicide allows farmers to choose between either a dry or a liquid formulation for cereals and other crops. The Arylex™ formulation also provides farmers with multiple modes of action, low use rates, rapid dispersion, flexible storage conditions, and robust performance in tank mix applications with other herbicides.

Best Industry Collaboration: Dow AgroSciences and GVK Biosciences

Dow AgroSciences is known as a company focused on collaboration and its ability to develop strong relationships with external partners to accelerate the development of new technologies for agriculture. The partnership with GVK Biosciences began as a collaboration to discover novel, early-stage agricultural products. Together, the two organizations successfully discovered a series of novel insecticides.

“The Agrow Awards illustrate our employees’ passion and commitment to making a difference in the world. Only when farmers succeed, do we succeed, and our scientists keep that top of mind,” said Daniel R. Kittle, Ph.D., vice president, Dow AgroSciences Research and Development. “When we deliver innovative new solutions, the planet’s farmers can accomplish their goal of feeding our growing world in a more efficient and sustainable manner.”

In addition to the winning entries for Best Formulations with Arylex™ active and Best Industry Collaboration for Dow AgroSciences and GVK Biosciences work, Dow AgroSciences was also recognized as a finalist for Best Marketing Campaign for Don’t Let Weeds Consume You.
