The two product lines will be launched in Italy early next year, according to the Italian oil-and-gas major. The companies are currently researching new products to eventually expand their portfolio.
AlphaBio Control is a research-and-development company specialized in the production of crop-protection solutions.
The financial terms of the deal weren't disclosed.
