Gowan Acquires Rights to M-Pede and Scythe

Gowan Co. LLC has reached an agreement with Dow AgroSciences LLC to acquire the rights to M-Pede insecticide/fungicide and Scythe herbicide.

M-Pede is an OMRI-certified insecticide/fungicide that controls aphids, thrips and mites on a variety of crops including vegetables, grapes, tree fruits, tree nuts, cotton and ornamentals. Scythe is a non-selective herbicide used for controlling a broad spectrum of weeds.
