Management Discussion
  • Domestic sales for the year ended December 31, 2019 were $282,225, as compared to $300,314 in 2018, a decrease of 6%. Sales were adversely affected by several factors. Unusually hot and dry autumn weather in the Southeastern U.S. followed by an early frost in Texas resulted in much lower demand for our U.S. cotton defoliant Folex®. In addition, sales of our soil fumigant products declined in light of record-setting rainfall across multiple regions, particularly in California and the Pacific Northwest, during the first half of the year, followed by snow and rain in the upper Midwest during the second half of the year. Additionally, full-year sales of several products (paraquat, abamectin and chlorothalonil) acquired in 2017 declined as a result of unfavorable weather, supply chain disruptions and competitive market pressures. In addition, we experienced a slight decline in sales of our mosquito adulticide Dibrom® to more normal annual levels, following the exceptional hurricane-driven demand of 2017 and 2018. These declines were partially offset by strong demand for our cotton foliar insecticide Bidrin® and certain of our premium Midwest corn products.
