New products: Sales of new products (defined as those launched since 2006) increased by 28 percent (CER) to $241 million. AXIAL® continued to grow strongly particularly in Canada. The roll-out of REVUS® and DURIVO® in new markets augmented underlying growth.

New products: Sales of new products (defined as those launched since 2006) totaled $263 million. The largest contribution came from the cereal herbicide AXIAL®, which was well positioned to gain share in a buoyant cereals market. The fungicide REVUS®, used on vegetables, vines and potatoes, expanded rapidly with registrations in over 50 countries planned. The insecticide DURIVO® was launched on rice in Indonesia and was an immediate success. In Seed Care AVICTA® sales were lower owing to reduced US cotton acres.

New products: DURIVO®, for which the peak sales target has been raised to $400 million, was successfully launched on rice in Indonesia with further launches to come in the course of the year. REVUS® made an excellent start in its first full year with registrations in more than 50 countries planned. The continued roll-out of AXIAL® resulted in sales almost doubling, reflecting the versatility of the product and strong demand on cereals. Sales of AVICTA® were lower affected by reduced US cotton acres; product performance is excellent with launch due this year on cotton in Brazil and in 2009 on corn in the USA. Combined peak sales for new products, defined as those launched since 2006, are estimated at over $1 billion.
