May 7, 2013, Guelph, Ont. — Engage Agro Corporation of Canada has reached a long term agreement with Marrone Bio Innovations, Inc. to be the exclusive marketer and distributor of GRANDEVO® bioinsecticide for Canada.
Under this Agreement, Engage will launch GRANDEVO once registration is received in Canada, and will work with Marrone to further expand the registered uses for GRANDEVO.
"The unique fit of the product in the market, coupled with further label development work, fits exactly our mandate,” says Engage president Ray Chyc.
“We are also excited to expand on our relationship with Marrone and value their trust in us to manage the sales, marketing, and further development of GRANDEVO in Canada.”
GRANDEVO is an advanced bioinsecticide that offers complex modes of action to control a broad spectrum of chewing and sucking insects and mites.
IPM IN A WIDE RANGE OF CROPS
Combining high performance with operational flexibility and long-lasting control, it strengthens integrated pest management programs (IPM) and resistance management (IRM) programs for a wide range of crops.
GRANDEVO is naturally derived from a newly discovered bacterium, commonly known as Achromacil™, which produces a number of compounds that contribute to the mode of action, resulting in a potent biopesticide that is highly active against insects and mites.
Control of pests is achieved by unique combinations of repellency, oral toxicity, reduced egg hatch, and reduced fecundity (ability of pest to reproduce).
GRANDEVO has also been shown to maintain populations of most beneficials and introduced biological controls. It is currently submitted for registration with the PMRA.
GRANDEVO is certified for use in organic production in the U.S.
