Herbicides form a key product line at Astec. We commissioned a new, dedicated herbicide plant with high potency section in August 2021. We are also augmenting our existing facilities in one of our existing plants to expand our herbicides production capacity to meet demand growth.
We are expanding the current portfolio to sulfonylureas along with in-house manufacturing of pyrimidines. These are part of Astec's ambitious plans to diversify its product portfolio and augment manufacturing capacity in the agrochemicals space.
