Dow AgroSciences announced that its affiliated cottonseed company, PhytoGen, has reached 10 percent of the total U.S. cottonseed units sold noting outstanding growth in leading high value markets, continued investment in the cotton industry, and an ongoing commitment to cotton globally.

"Dow AgroSciences has a rich history in the cotton market with more than 50 years of experience working with cotton growers and researchers to bring new ag chem products and new varieties to market," said Stan Howell, vice president of the North America market for Dow AgroSciences. "One of our key strengths is our innovative breeding program bringing new agronomic and trait combinations to cotton growers from coast to coast."

Around the world, Dow AgroSciences has advanced key milestones in cotton. The company has gained registration for WideStrike Insect Protection in Brazil and it has advanced WideStrike to Phase 2 regulatory trials in India.

"Cotton being a key crop globally is very important to Dow AgroSciences and a crop where adoption of biotechnology traits has been the most rapid of any crop," said Antonio Galindez, president and CEO for Dow AgroSciences. "And our pipeline development in cotton continues to grow as Dow AgroSciences plans to introduce its new herbicide tolerant trait technology in the U.S. in cotton in 2015."

Dow AgroSciences and PhytoGen are continually looking to the future to find ways to enhance the profitability of growers' operations. PhytoGen will showcase its first entry into the mid- to full-season market with PhytoGen brand PHY 565 WRF. PhytoGen is introducing this and a limited number of other new varieties in 2010, including a new nematode-tolerant variety.

Dow AgroSciences LLC, based in Indianapolis, Indiana, USA, is a top-tier agricultural company that combines the power of science and technology with the "Human Element" to constantly improve what is essential to human progress. Dow AgroSciences provides innovative technologies for crop protection, pest and vegetation management, seeds, traits, and agricultural biotechnology to serve the world's growing population. Global sales for Dow AgroSciences, a wholly owned subsidiary of The Dow Chemical Company, are $4.5 billion.
