Swiss-based seed and chemical giant Syngenta has announced it is in the process of divesting a number of its agrochemical product lines. This process was a requirement of the EU Commission’s ruling to approve ChemChina’s $43bn takeover of Syngenta.

Under the EU’s ruling announced in April this year, Syngenta is required to divest any products containing the active ingredients fluazifop (Fusilade) and fluazinam (Shirlan).
