FMC is a pure-play crop chemicals producer. The company is one of the five largest patented crop protection companies globally. FMC acquired Cheminova in 2015, increasing exposure to Europe and expanding its portfolio of crop chemicals. In late 2017, FMC acquired DuPont's divested crop chemicals portfolio, which included blockbuster insecticide Rynaxypyr. At the same time, the company divested nonagriculture businesses.
