August 18, 2008, Memphis, Tenn. –
DuPont has been awarded a 2008 R&D 100 Award for DuPont™
Rynaxypyr™, an insect control product.
Rynaxypyr™ was one of 100 new products chosen by Research & Development magazine as the most innovative products introduced in 2008.
“We’re honored to receive this prestigious external acknowledgement of DuPont innovation,” said James C. Collins, vice president and general manager of DuPont Crop Protection. “Our Rynaxypyr™ insect control products are just one way DuPont is advancing agriculture through a rich pipeline of products that will help our customers improve profitability and productivity today and into the future.”
Rynaxypyr™ is the active ingredient in DuPont™ Altacor™ and Coragen™, two insect control products that have received registration in Canada earlier this year. These new products offer growers control of a wide range of pests.
The R&D 100 Awards Gala will take place Oct. 16, in Chicago.
