Eric Wintemute, Chairman and CEO of American Vanguard, stated: “We are pleased to report another strong performance for the third quarter that reflects the excellent positioning of our product portfolio, especially our broad range of insecticides. In granular soil insecticides, we continue to expand our international sales penetration with Mocap® and Nemacur®, and we have successfully captured additional business with Thimet® in peanuts and sugarcane replacing a competing product that has been withdrawn from the U.S. market.”

Mr. Wintemute continued: “Recently, we have been seeing considerable interest in our many products for the domestic corn market. In June we announced a significant agreement with Monsanto for the co-marketing of our post-emergent corn herbicide Impact® in conjunction with their Roundup® Ready glyphosate program. We are also seeing corn growers show greater interest in the yield enhancement benefits of corn soil insecticides for protection of their crops in areas where pest pressure is not adequately handled by the use of genetic defenses alone. As the supplier with the most complete line of soil insecticide products as well as the closed delivery systems best equipped to dispense them, we are poised to satisfy this growing demand.”
