Source: FMC news release

FMC Corporation (NYSE:FMC) initiated litigation today against Summit Agro LLC and Summit North American Holdings Corporation in United States District Court in Wilmington, Del., seeking injunctive and monetary relief for Summit's infringement of an FMC patent covering production of FMC's sulfentrazone herbicide, which is marketed in the United States under the Spartan® and Authority® brands.

The complaint also alleges that Summit has engaged in unfair competition.

"FMC has invested significantly in developing sulfentrazone and associated production technology, as well as in establishing the strong reputation of Spartan and Authority brands in the minds of our customers," said Marc Hullebroeck, North America and EMEA vice president and business director, FMC Agricultural Solutions.

"FMC will vigorously defend its intellectual property rights."
