James Walter, a chemical scientist for FMC Agricultural Products, defies the stereotype.
He is interesting, witty and has one of those refreshing laughs that make people smile. James Walter and Bob Albright love working in the lab. As for being gawky ... once upon a time in the early 1980s, Walter played basketball at the University of Virginia, an Atlantic Coast Conference powerhouse at the time. But, yes, Walter, a Ph.D. and director of project management for FMC Agricultural Products, is a bit geeky. But what's wrong with that? "Geeks have become part of the upper echelon in a lot of ways," the 56-year-old Walter says, not intending to sound assuming because he's not. But, like Walter, he enjoys the good things in life, like fine Italian food and old Bruce Springsteen records. Walter and Albright work out of FMC's campus in Ewing, N.J. Albright is from the area and was educated at nearby universities, including Drexel and Temple in Philadelphia. James Walter Walter grew up in Virginia and has a bachelor's degree in chemical engineering from the University of Virginia. He received his Ph.D. from the University of California, Berkeley. Like a lot of working people, James and Albright have concerns about their profession. For instance, Walter is concerned that increasing environmental regulations could price potential new chemistries out of the market. Ideas aren't in short supply, but they must be analyzed and prioritized for their potential value, Walter explains. "We have a very organized stage gate process for monitoring projects as they go through the development process," he says. "A big part of the stage gate process is to throw out the ideas that aren't going to work as early as possible so we don't waste a lot of time and effort working on them." Walter and Albright are constantly fielding their share of curveballs during the research and development process. Walter will continue to give climate change a lot of thought as it pertains to product development. But his ideas won't necessarily come from racking his brain in the laboratory. He's a scientist, but he garners his best ideas like a lot of people do.


Industry scientist James Walter says, "Something is changing."
I recently spoke with James Walter, Ph.D., director of project management for FMC Agricultural Products, and asked what he thought of the phenomenon that's garnering so much media attention.


"Poa annua is a particular problem on golf course greens and fairways due to its ability to survive low mowing heights and still reseed," says Jim Walter, development and innovation manager with FMC Professional Solutions.
Walter says Poa annua germinates in late summer to early fall, when soil temperatures drop below 70 degrees. It continues germinating during the winter, "allowing several flushes of germination at any site throughout the winter," he says.

One study indicated the two components in Transport, acetamiprid and bifenthrin, separate slightly in the soil. The bifenthrin bound to the soil where it was applied and the acetamiprid separated and feathered out slightly from the treated area. In another study, FMC data indicated that termites picked up and moved acetamiprid-treated soil particles and used them to line their tunnels.   “This facilitates transfer of the active ingredient, which contaminates termite tunnels adjacent to treated structures,†says Jim Walter, Ph.D., Manager of Product Development for FMC.

According to Jim Walter, Product Development Director for FMC, “When we first started looking at the formulation for Dismiss, we recognized its potential pretty quickly.
