Becker Underwood is a global provider of technologies for biological seed treatment and seed treatment pigments and polymers. The company also has an extended product portfolio in the areas of biological crop protection, turf and horticulture, animal nutrition and landscape colorants and coatings. The transaction, initially announced on September 20, 2012, closed on November 21, 2012.
