Aventis and Novartis settle
AVENTIS CropScience has settled a dispute over its Liberty herbicide product with Novartis, reports the Financial Times.
Franco-German life sciences group Aventis said the companies had found a solution to three lawsuits.
They have agreed to promote the use of Liberty on Swiss group Novartiss NK range of insect-resistant hybrid maize seeds.
Sales of the product in 1999 were said to be about 50m.
