Brazil propels Dow AgroSciences sales

October 25, 2007
Economic recovery in Brazil helped drive third-quarter sales for Indianapolis-based Dow AgroSciences to $788 million, a 19-percent increase from the same period last year, its parent, Midland, Mich.-based Dow Chemical Co. Inc., reported yesterday.

In Brazil, more sugar cane acres and a good season for growing corn sparked strong demand for Dow AgroSciences' commodity herbicides.

The period also resulted in "continued success" for the company's canola and sunflower oils, which are being adopted by restaurants because the oils are low in trans fats.

The agricultural arm of the chemical giant doesn't report profit.
