ÉLÉPHANT VERT will develop and market two of Marrone Bio Innovations, Inc. (MBI) ’s products in Morocco, Tunisia and Algeria:
* The biofungicide REYSANA™ is currently labeled for use by growers of tomatoes, peppers, grapes and cucurbits. Reysana contains the same ingredients as MBI’s Regalia Maxx Biofungicide, which is already marketed and sold in more than 10 countries worldwide.
* The bionematicide MAJESTENE, which protects crops from yield-robbing nematodes. The product is inside the registration process.
Vincent Thieyre, Products & Solutions Development Director of ÉLÉPHANT VERT, said: “Integrating biopesticides into crop protection programs benefits all production, and is increasingly important for exporters of vegetables in the region. Growers of key crops in Morocco are eagerly awaiting Reysana’s official launch event in Agadir on September 21st 2017, followed by a similar event in Tunisia. These events are significant milestones that solidify the cooperation between our two companies.”
Dr. Pamela Marrone, CEO and Founder of MBI said: “We are delighted by this partnership that is part of our international development strategy; this agreement enables MBI to expand to new markets in North Africa while meeting farmers’ needs with innovation-driven biological products.”
Sébastien Couasnet, CEO of ÉLÉPHANT VERT, added, “This agreement opens up new promising development opportunities to provide North-African farmers with a wider range of natural, efficient and innovative solutions.”
