As part of their new partnership, Pilarquim
and Agricenter, S.R.L., an owned subsidiary AMVAC Netherlands BV, will distribute the new fungicides, Pilartep and Pilarxanil, to various Central American and Caribbean countries. Pilartep and Pilarxanil are both favored and valued by local distributors and farmers.
Pilartep, “Hojas Saludables, Mejores Cultivos”, features two active ingredients that provide excellent protection and treatment. Pilartep is effective against leaf spot diseases, such as rust, sheath blight, anthracnose, early blight and banana black sigatoka. Pilartep particles come in a uniform size, which maintains better ductility on leaf surfaces and better absorption, ensuring greater effectiveness. Pilartep also promotes the growth of crops, makes leaves thicker and greener, and encourages photosynthesis, improving crop quality.
Pilarxanil utilizes a unique advanced process of production known as “Dry SC,” and the size of its particles is much smaller than WG, enabling it to be dispersed evenly during watering and preventing sedimentation, ensuring the safety of crops and higher efficiency. The product can be easily combined with others to control downy mildew and late blight caused by oomycetes.
Pilarquim first entered the Central American market many decades ago, and many changes were officially announced in 2017, as part of Pilarquim’s “New Era” around the world. In Central America, these developments were adopted more rapidly due to a shorter registration period of only two years, and new strategic and specialist products are beginning to enter local markets.
Grupo Agricenter is a leader in agricultural solutions, with a presence in seven countries in Central America and the Caribbean. It is the first company certified as carbon neutral in its business category, and possesses a proactive and dynamic team, as well as a successful commercial platform, and a well established corporate social responsibility program.
Canxian Mu (Director of Pilarquim) visited Agricenter to learn about the work of its team, its distribution channels and its products. He also give a master class on formulations, the past, present and future of agrochemicals formulations around the world, and how to use Pilarquim’s products, to enable the Agricenter team to provide better technical services.
As more new products from Pilarquim receive approval to be used in Central America and the Caribbean countries, farmers from these regions will learn about the high efficacy and superior quality of Pilarquim products, as these new products ensure that farmers raise high quality crops and see better harvests.
Central America and the Caribbean are just the beginning. Pilarquim is committed to providing the most efficient products and professional services to farmers throughout the world. With Pilarquim, the future is worth looking forward to!
